There is a huge learning curve in life. The older I get, the more I realize how little I know.
I wish that there were a handbook for life…how to deal with different situations in the best way possible. The fact of the matter is that even if there were a handbook, I wouldn’t follow it. I’m a hard-headed woman who likes to learn her lessons with blood, sweat and lots of tears.
Whatever I do, I do wholeheartedly. When I work, I give 100% and I expect no less from my co-workers. When I am a friend, I will give you the shirt off my back, my last dollar, drive to the ends of the earth if you need me. When I love, I love with all of my being. When you hit the point when I am through with something or someone, it is finished.
Sometimes I wish that I could be like other people…but I can’t. I’m the way that God and life have created me.
When I have a discussion with someone, though the conversation may be finished in their mind, I keep mulling on the conversation, trying to understand what I need to get from the conversation…many times for days.
Right now, my life has a very steep learning curve. I’m definitely learning lessons daily. Hopefully I survive the lessons. It’s a tough season.
Please pray for mom…the second round of chemo is much more complicated than the first. Pray for dad…he’s worried. Pray for me. I want to learn the lessons that I’m being taught…but I am a bull-headed woman.
