Life, as they say, is a series of good and bad times, and this time one of my family is having a hard time and needs a lot of support. This brings to mind how each and every one of us copes with problems. Are we of the opinion that it will all go away, or do we face up to things, or perhaps have a drink or two? Humans are a strange breed.
I was talking to an acquaintance who confided in me that his family was having a hard time too, and his answer was “you have to love one another and help”. It really took my breath away. It’s been a long time since I heard a thing like that. We learn so many things if we listen, humility being just one of them.
Sorry if I’m being a little maudlin, but that’s life isn’t it. It can’t be perfect all the time.
