The Boomerang Effect



Standing in line for a roller coaster, your heart begins to beat a little faster as you wind your way through the line.  Then the butterflies start flitting in your stomach.  Nervous chatter is a way to lamely calm the nerves.  Yo watch the coaster do its initial climb and drop.  Your breath catches as it turns upside down and the riders gleefully squeal in delight.  Or is terror?  Steadily you approach the train, its now or never.  You board the train.  The harness is locked on.  The brakes release and your heart drops into your stomach as it begins its 90 second journey.  You laugh, scream, shut your eyes and hold on for life.  Or maybe you ride with your eyes open, laughing and arms in the air because you know the ride.  But what about life?  What about the roller coaster of life?  When it tossing us up and down, upside down.  We don't know this ride or its effects and yet we waited in line with anticipation.  We got on board--so to speak--and the brakes have been released!  What happens now???

It's been a week I tell you.  Due to complications with his diabetes, my husband was hospitalized.  He broke his toe and ended up with a bad infection in his foot.  He has been on round the clock meds, and they are taking good care of him.  I got the flu in the process and my house and laundry suffered the consequences.  So I am going to be absent some more in the blogging world.  I will be around.  Lurking.  Never leaving.  I can't.  Keep checking back.  Know that things are under control for now.  But on life's roller coaster you just never know!
