Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

Up and down, and all around

5 Comments

Some days I feel as if I’m on a roller coaster, or perhaps a merry-go-round, or maybe both at once.

Today was a very good day – mostly.  It started that way, stayed that way for a good deal of the day, had a few fits in the afternoon…and then my six-year-old took a nose dive into Grandpa’s chair.  Sigh.

I know it happens – I mean he IS six years old.  I’m really just grateful he hasn’t broken anything.  The thing is, this boy is caution personified.  It is really fairly startling when he does something like this – and it scared him pretty badly.  He IS fine – a puffy lip, a bloody nose, and a nasty bruise.  In addition, his spirits were back where they should be by bed-time.  Still, as a mom, you really want to make things right, and calm your child when they are that upset – and I didn’t seem to do my job very well today.  Sigh.

    • I really wish I could, Ashley. Unfortunately, the only thing that seems to work is time – all things will pass. The bad things stop eventually or calm down, and the good things pass as well in time. If things are really bad or really difficult, find someone to talk to and lean on a little until you can regroup. Mind you, be careful about finding someone that you know you can trust; I’m made a mistake or two and that area and the people I confided in did more harm than good. Remember, and I know that this is fairly cliche, but to appreciate the good times, you have to have the bad as well.

      I admit that it isn’t always easy to keep that in mind, or trust that the bad times will end, but hold on. It will happen.
