It Could Always Be Worse!


The only dependable law of life – everything is always worse than you thought it was going to be. – Author: Dorothy Parker    It Could Be Worse Quotes

For the last several days I have not been feeling the best.  It’s not something that I can honestly say what it is.  It’s not the flu, cold, just a feeling of not one hundred percent.

Growing up if we were sick our mother would not let us lay around in the living room.  She believed if we were really sick, the best place to be was our bed.

She taught us to show empathy towards those who are suffering.  We would never make fun of anyone with a physical, mental challenges.  Today it is open season when it comes to making fun of someone who is different than themselves.  If they are from a different country, skin a different shade of color, then it is pedal to the floor with racism.

If we are paying attention it is easy to look around to find out that maybe, just maybe, our situation could be worse.  That cures the self-pity party!

So, my heart goes out to all those who are grieving tonight from the loss of a loved one, or a friend!  For those I will be praying for. May they find strength while facing such great sorrow!

***Yes dear reader, it could always be worse! ***

    Awesome post! And so true! Our mother taught us the same thing! I’m beginning to think you and I grew up with the same values! Which is great!

      Thank you Cherie!
      Well we probably were raised with the same values.
      I use to think I was the oddball out in many ways. My basic value in life is, “treat others like I want to be treated”. It carries me through all type of situations.
