The Joy of Moving

It appears that moving is in my stars. About a year ago I moved, and it appears to be happening again.

As I shared with my readers, about a year ago my husband and I were forced to move. As we survived a fire that destroyed most of our worldly possessions, it now appears that we have to move again. This time it is not a fire that is causing the problem. However, the reason will have to remain with the people who own the place we now live.

Frankly, I am not as distraught as I was a year ago, as this place has not been a joy to inhabit.

The place we were fortunate enough to find is not far from where we are now living, and it has an apartment that is superior to the place we foolishly chose to live in last year.

What is disturbing me is that the concept of moving again is very difficult for me to handle. It will necessitate that we spend more money for the move, and although we both dislike the place in which we now live, the idea that we have to face the trauma so soon is not what I planned to do.

I have to wonder whether at the tender age of eighty four, my old body will be able to cope with another move.

In addition, I am waiting for word from my daughter who is very ill, and called a couple of days ago to tell me that she is now in desperate shape.

There are times in life when one has to question whether there comes a period when life can be more then we are able to handle. This will truly be a test of how much inner strength one can accumulate over a lifetime.

I am turning to my readers for their response to my query. Why does life attack one when we sense that we lack the strength to overcome the negative issues that face us?

My request is that if anyone has encountered similar circumstances that they might drop me a note.
