June 3--The Yin Yang of Life

One is never fortunate or as unfortunate as one imagines. 
--Francois de la Rochefoucauld

     D-R-A-M-A!!!! Most especially if you have raised one or more children through their teenage years, you know it well. So many crises! Maybe you thrive on drama. It does have its addictive qualities. 
    One would think that winning the big lottery jackpot would be the ultimate in good fortune, but post-winning stories indicate that it can cause all sorts of problems for the winner. 
    I am saddened by the passing yesterday of a dear friend. Despite the great sadness her many friends are feeling, it is good fortune that she is no longer in pain. We were very blessed by her long life, and I rejoice in her new state of bliss.
    We are enjoying family good fortune today as we celebrate the 32nd birthday of our younger son. 
    There you have it... fortunate/unfortunate, happy/sad, drama/peace. We move through it all.
