FB friends, I've realized that it's easy to let our imaginations get the best of us, it just kind of takes off and runs wild with absurd thoughts. I think that's what I have let happen where telling my family is concerned. There is no way of knowing ahead of time what the outcome will be so why let ourselves go crazy worrying about it, dreaming up every horrible scenario possible. As a teenager I remember seeing a poster in the store with the big ol grizzly bear rubbing up against a tree scratchin' his back. The phrase on the poster read: "What do you mean don't worry about it? The things I worry about never happen." As if the very act of worrying about it was what caused it not to happen, NOT! As a young man this made an impression on me and caused me to think about the time I wasted worrying about things that never happened. Somehow things managed to turn out OK every time. No matter my families reactions I am sure life will continue to move forward and I will continue to laugh, smile, cry, etc. I think when we stop worrying and fretting we see more clearly and oft times the answer is right in front of us.

  1. I can honestly say that those things which I imagined happened with some of them even worse than I thought. However now that it is over and done the pain isn't as bad as I had imagined. Ya it hurts bad but I am surviving. I am glad I didn't let the fear stop me.
