A Life Well Lived

A Life Well Lived
by Gina Valley

My husband’s mom died in the wee hours of this morning.

Although she had been declining, her passing was not expected.  Fortunately, all of her children were at her side when she slipped away.  My husband is very sad.  My heart is broken for him.  Both of his parents are gone now, so it’s a double loss.

Love is…

Love is…

Love is folding the laundry so I can finish my ice cream

Love is telling me I look beautiful when I don’t because I need to hear it

Love is taking a day off work to make me a bouquet of a dozen roses out of red duct tape

Love is cleaning up the kids’ barf every time without being asked

Love is vacuuming the living room when company is coming even though the only difference you see is that it makes lines on the rug

So, the elections are over.

Now what are we supposed to argue about?

It’s important to our health as people to have a constant source of bicker-ready topics available.  We need the cardio that racing to an opinion, running off at the mouth, jumping off the deep end, and stretching the truth provide.

No, We CANT All Just Get Along

No, We CAN’T All Just Get Along

Do we have to argue about everything?

Yes.  Yes, we do.

My youngest boys, Matthew and Ryan, argue about whose turn it is.  Constantly.  Turns are very important to them.  I suppose someday some overpaid therapist will tell them that’s because they’re from a big family, but I know it’s just because they’re trying to drive me insane.
