I’d like to say life is like a walk in the park… strolling along, people coming and going, things to see and do…
But I think a better analogy is…. Life is like a game of Dodgeball.
Like it’s saying….. Here see if you can catch THIS!!!!
Some balls are big, some balls are small, some of them you can see coming and dodge them all together.
Some balls come out of nowhere and knock you down, till a friend can help you get back into the game.
Some balls you can catch. The small ones you whip back as soon as you catch them. The bigger ones you need to have a better plan to catch them and then you have to take the time to deal with where to send them. I’m just glad they are balls and not wrenches…. but then like the line from the movie…..”If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball” so….. I don’t know….hmmmm 🙂
When I look around at my friends and family who have dealt with loss, sickness, hurt, and other challenges, I feel like my game of Dodgeball is very very mild, but it’s also my game for me to deal with as is everyone else game. We all have our own challenges.
Yes life is tough some days and it doesn’t always go the way you plan. There have been days when life is like a walk in the park, but then it seems one of my children brings me back into the game of Dodgeball, to keep me lean and limber (HA I wish.lol) More like to remind me to be humble and that life takes hard work.
I do think it’s time for a little Timeout though, a holiday away to rejuvenate sore bodies, and I’m not going to be ashamed if all we do is sleep for two full days and not get up till noon. Dodgeball is tiring…
