So True

"They say bad things happen for a reason,
but no wise words gonna stop the bleeding."

~ The Script


  1. no wiser words have ever been uttered....

    regardless of the outcome, know that you are never alone.


  2. My heart is bleeding here as I pray for good news about beautiful Kama. Sending positive vibes and warm hugs to you.

  3. Oh, yes I haven't heard that phrase before. It is very true. In these situations no words can help. Big hugs to you all!

  4. As my Dad was dying of cancer for two years, people, though well-intentioned, used phrases like that continuously.

    Like knowing "good" may come of the pain helped me IN our time of did not. I was not and am not that big of a person.

    In fact, Christian cliches are one of my pet peeves.

    "God has a better plan"
    "God is in control"
    "God knows how much you can handle"
    "God allowed this to make you stronger"

    baloney. The force of EVIL in the world has a power that bring devastation upon people and God cries when we cry.

    That people fall back on cliches is sad because it means they do not know what else to say .....

    I am guilty of falling back on them myself...but I am always disapointed in myself afterwards.

    It is like saying, "Hi, How are you" and the other person says, "Fine" but both of you really didn't hear or answer the question with much thought.

    Sorry.....this is one of my soapboxes...

    Praying for your oh so precious family..
