Time Out

Or as we used to say when I was young, “King’s X.”  The weight of the world’s problems is so great, my own personal  situation pales in comparison. But both keep me awake at night.

Lately it has been my home. I had to have a new dishwasher installed.  Replaced a burned out microwave. Twice. Had the washing machine fixed. The hall and laundry room floors replaced after a water heater leak, numerous trees trimmed, a new garbage disposal installed. And I need a new roof.  my insurance company will replace part of the cost of the floor and the roof. But that leaves a lot emptying my pockets.

The shootings, cages filled with live bodies, children crying for their parents, people losing their homes and possessions due to fire and floods.  the. Homeless. The hungry.  The sick.  All are so much more serious than my own personal worries.

The universe is hurting  I do what I can, which is so little  And I try to connect to the good news which I know is out there.  It’s GOT to get better!

  1. Similar situation here, Mary. I can relate to the home stuff. But as you say, the horrible things going on in our country and around the world are the worst. Both keep me awake at night too. Hopefully the pendulum will soon swing the other way!

  2. Hello Mary, it has been a long time. I don’t know if you remember me but we have conversed a few years ago.
    I see you are still writing. I’m so glad to see you about. Please take care.
