Now, I am fully aware of my tendency to be a whiny whiner.
I think one of the things I appreciate about blogland, but do not mention, is that reading about other people’s lives really puts my petty struggles with having a slightly boring job and an penchant to want to change my environment every ten minutes in serious perspective.
Today, a good blogger has passed away. I didn’t know that Dr. Syn was Blitz Kreig – Guess I wasn’t paying attention, but that just added an extra hit to the news.
He walked into a door a few weeks ago. Walked into a door. He posted about it… joked about it. A pirate with an eye patch. Now, a couple of weeks goes by and he has died of a subsequent infection. Life is fragile. It should not be taken for granted. A door.
So, for the record, since I know I will go back to being a whiny whiner pretty soon – it’s in my nature – I would like to say:
- I am lucky to have my life.
- I have a place to live.
- I have enough to eat.
- I have a husband that I love and who loves me.
- I have a loving family.
- I am in good health.
- I have an abundance of “stuff” that would probably make my depression-era grandmother blush if she could see it.
- I have a good job that pays my bills.
- This is a good life.
Dr. Syn – you will be missed.
