I knew when I wrote my last post that I was just asking for trouble, but I didn’t know just how bad it could get. I can’t go into details because I want to honor my family, but the situation that has occurred is going to pose a great challenge in our lives. It has to do with a decision that someone made that is going to have a ripple effect throughout the family.
Have you ever seen those viral videos on youtube or some other video outlet that shows people getting blind-sided with a sucker punch? They were just doing their thing when somebody just goes BOOM! Teeth, blood, and spit go a-flyin’, and the after effect is a stunned look and a lot of pain.
Well, that’s what happened on Friday. I was already having a very stressful week when it was revealed to me. This is a situation that I can’t run from that I will have to face. It’s been made clear that I will have no other choice but to be supportive, but right now my emotions are too wild. I need some time. However, I always rise to the occasion, because that’s what expected of me even if I have to fake it.
There is an upside to this situation. Lord willing in approximately seven months we’ll have a new member of the family.
