When someone said count your blessings now
For they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how

According to the belief that God (whoever and where ever that being is these days) only gives you can handle ... I'm one resilient muther fucker...

We all saw a funeral coming ... Sunday it will finally arrive. Monday we will go do what the military calls a burial. After that much neglect and selfishness, how could you not see this coming? I'm fairly certain they did and that was precisely why they behaved the way they did. The only thing I have to say about that is: passively allowing a person to die is still actively choosing not to help a person live.

And if that weren't enough ...

My aunt needs surgery on her foot after crushing her heel and she's dealing with a compression fracture of thoracic vertebrae. Its a tough road to go when you've got help - she lives alone and is now homebound, unable to navigate the stairs to her front door.

Have you ever felt like your family was cursed?

(yes, that is rhetorical)

Didn't someone say I deserved a break? Cuz I wanna call in my favor now ...

I'm sorry, Cat. I remember a time when our phone never rang that it wasn't bad news. There's a time like that for many families. Maybe, eventually, for every family.

Grim says it well. I had that experience during 24 months from ages 11 to 13. Fortunately, there's been nothing even close since then, even though there have been moments of deep pain.
