Which brings me to Facebook. Oh how I love/hate you Facebook. I love that 94 people "liked" my new haircut. (Thanks if you were one of them!) But I also think I fall into this trap:
What I LIKE about Facebook is how it can pull together almost strangers and fight for a cause. A group of us tried very hard to keep the Price Lab School open. The big realization in my life right now is very simple: Life is not fair. As my mom used to say, "Who said life was fair?" I didn't listen then but I'm trying to listen now.
However, I thought if we worked really hard, and our cause was just, we had a chance to make a real difference. But that is not always the case. I feel the same about Jude. We can do all the therapies and go to all the doctors visits possible, but in the end, Jude will be who Jude will be. Sometimes I want to give up, and sometimes I want to push through knowing we did the best we could regardless of the outcome.
(Oh, and that image above reminds me, did I mention that I was Hudson High School's Homecoming Queen of 1994? I'm really surprised that it took me four whole blog posts before I mentioned that about myself :)
So, T-minus 10 days to surgery. T-minus five days until my husband takes me to see Louis CK live in Minneapolis. I cannot wait! I'll share a quote I stole from someone's page on Facebook, "I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person." --Audrey Hepburn.
So I will choose to laugh. And choose to be happy. Because, after all, everything is amazing.
Making others smile
Lifting up my spirit
