Today I'm going to grumble. I'll try not to mumble. Some of you are chronically ill and you know what I'm going to say all too well. I hope it makes you feel feel a little bit better because you know that there is someone else out there who knows what you are going through. I'm not going to detail a long list. Let it suffice to say that in the last few hours I have managed to break a tooth while chewing soft food, broke my favorite teapot, well… You get the picture.
The feeling I'm referring to is the awareness that your body doesn't work right anymore. I'm not just referring to age, this can happen to people of any time of life. I'm referring to the feeling you get when that car you love so much not only doesn't work but the mechanic says, "We can't get parts for that anymore. I don't think sure we CAN repair it."
As some of you know, I spent years training my family to laugh at these problems. Given the choice of crying about them or laughing about them, I'll choose laughter without hesitation.
But right now I just want to grumble a little. Writing this and then posting it makes me feel a little better. I invite everyone to shake their heads, put on a wry smile, and laugh about it. That will make me feel much better.
