Ups and downs
Life is always a bit of a roller coaster. Today I tried to speak to someone whose (20 something) son has just begun treatment for Leukemia. He (the Dad) had trouble even speaking. Then I heard that I had made a friend happy by helping him buy a car that he didn't think he could afford. (I didn't help him financially, but just - in a roundabout way - helped him find it). My nephew is now recovering form major cancer surgery and is doing almost ok. So these are just a few of the ups and downs of my day. Some simple 'ups' involve my ability to actually get the house clean and tidy, but a more tragic 'down' is hearing from a friend of the trauma she is experiencing as her son battles serious mental illness. Even the dreaded ECT is unable to help him this time, it seems. Such is life!
