Life Happens ~

No matter who tries to teach you lessons 
about life you won't understand it until
 you go through it on your own...

I saw this today and it made me smile.  Made me also realize that
 what it says is true.  We have come a far way, Arvid and I.

It's 11 days now since I have not been feeling good. 
 Meaning bad cough, terrible sore throat and worse of 
all, I can't talk without breaking into fits of cough.  
Very pleasant these last 10 day.  I say not.

It's been so bad that I have had to sleep on the recliner.
  Laying flat is a nightmare right now.  I have not
 been able to go walking with Arvid nor workout. 

 Truth this I can hardly breathe, and this inhaler 
thing I have sure does not work for me.

That being said it has not stopped us from doing other things,
 as long as no long walks are involved.  We have been
 out for nice outings and hopefully will check out a few 
other places before leaving for Chicago.  I checked
 the weather in Chicago, it's cold and raining.

On a different subject, a few days ago I was texting with
a friend.  A long "conversation", but a very familiar topic.
  Favoritism.  Something I think I know a bit of. 

All parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc have a
 favorite child or grandchild, niece, nephew, etc. but when
 it becomes obvious, we have a problem it seems. 

Question to all of you; have you had much experience
with this?  If so what's the best way to work around it?
 I really don't know the answers, and I am sure this
 is a cause of friction among families.  Life.

Another beautiful day here, but in Chicago not so much.
  Yesterday there was flooding.  At least 6 inches of rain in
 some places.  All I know is that it's raining everyday
and will be raining when we arrive.  Also very cold
 compared to Florida, but I don't mind the cold.

Wishing everyone a happy day.  Remember
 there is always something good in everyday.

If you don't like something, change it.
 If you can't change it, change your attitude...
