Life is, well.........complicated!

If that is not the most understated phrase, then I am just doing it all wrong! Heck, I probably am. Oh well, my new outlook on life is to just keep on trucking. Look where it has gotten me thus far. I am just three weeks from earning my first degree. When I started on this roller coaster it seemed that I had boarded a ride that would never end. People would say that at least there was light at the end of the tunnel, but I felt like with the way my luck always seems to go, the light would probably be a train!

But now I see that light, and by golly it even looks like daylight. Keep on trucking, thats what it is all about now, keep on trucking.

Kids lives are topsy-turvey and you feel their pain along with your own, keep on trucking.

Seems like every class decided to load up all of their assignments at the end of the semester, keep on trucking.

your "right now" job asks yo to choose between your school and committing to more work, keep on trucking.

Kids get sick, loved ones fall on hard times, everyone seems to be loosing their jobs, businesses are failing right and left.................

Keep on trucking!

Cuz, what else you gonna do?

Life may be complicated, but its all worth it in the end. Even if our reward is not in this life, it WILL come.

Its all about the simple joys anyhow:
  • the hug from a child
  • the smile from a stranger
  • that warmth in your heart when you provide service
  • holding hands with your spouse
  • sharing fond memories and making new ones
And none of these have to cost any money.

Have a great day blog stalkers!

Oh, how strange! I just saw on my Feedjit that someone was reading blog entries from 2009 so I clicked on it, clicked on the comments, and came across you again! And I come here...and this is the first time you've blogged again in...what...a year? Do you remember me? In the bloggy world, a couple of years is like two milleniums, haha! But we used to share comments back and forth a lot. I lived in Portland, OR, but my entire family moved to Michigan earlier this year. It's good to see you posting again! :-)

Stumbled across an old friend's blog, found your comment and was intrigued by your user name.

So true, it is best to keep truckin', better to drive the truck than get drug behind it!

I completely agree. Although, I also admit that I am a bit jealous that you started back to school AFTER me but will be getting your degree BEFORE me. lol... j/k. I am actually verrrrry happy for you.

I have felt a little overwhelmed lately - but like you, find I gotta keep on truckin'. (Or as Dorie says, "just keep swimmin'...)
