"It be that way sometimes."

"It be that way sometimes" is the statement  an old friend would make when he was going through a rough patch or things were out of sorts.  "It be that way sometimes", is what I've said alot over the past couple of weeks.  I don't know if I could really say what all I've been up to and where I've been lately - its just too much to try to explain.  Its not anything terribly bad - just a lot of "life" -  all at once. 

Hubby's dad has been in the hospital for over 2 weeks now and has had a lot of ups and downs.  He seems to be on the up side of things right now.  I've stayed busy with work and home and getting ready for our craft sale at church.   Hubby had to go to the ER with gall stones which made for a long night and not much fun.  He is fine now.  Little Girl had to go to the Dr. last week with pink eye and again today with an ear infection.  Yuck!  Grandbaby has been sick too.  We had a crazy busy weekend with the church stuff and family.  Work is making me insane (er) and things are just crazy busy in general.  The past couple of weeks have really been a blurr and I missed you.  Thank you for not giving up on me.

There have been some sweet moments in all of this.  Drinking a cup of coffee on the porch and finding peace.  My sweet Grandbaby making me laughing.  Having great conversations in the car on the way to doctor appointments. Stealing a few minutes just to sit around the table with family. Being able to make jokes out of things that may not be have been so funny when they happened.  Seeing my children be good and generous people.  Just being with the ones I love so much makes everything okay.

Life - it be that way sometimes.
