Let me start this post with the fact that I know I have been abundantly blessed by God with an awesome life partner, three fab kids, the cutest grandbaby ever and family and friends who I love and love me back. I also have a job, a beautiful home and plenty to eat. What I am struggling with is the "drama" of life.

Last night my daughter's boyfriend got arrested for battery. on.my.daughter. NOT cool! Now, Nicole can be a pain in the ass but to send my daughter to the hospital for x-rays is not right. She is fine, she had a muscle strain in her neck. She has a bad back from cheerleading and her boyfriend knows this and proceeded to push on the side of her head while she was in her seat belt in her car trying to go see her dad.

Then today I find out my boss's wife is going to be taking medication that will make her sicker than she already is. She starts this after the first of the year and will be on the meds anywhere from 3-6 months. This is a lady that already has a full plate.

And then my Dad calls me to tell me my Grandmother is not doing well. This is my 93 year old grandmother who I share a birthday with, one of the most special women in my life. She had hit herself in the face with the medicine cabinet door and fell. This happened in the middle of the night and when my Uncle went to check on her the next morning, she was asleep with blood on her face. They went to the ER and got stitches. Now, this was a week or so ago. Since, she had been complaining about her back and they found out that she did something to two vertabre and there is nothing they can do, they will heal on their own. But at 93 how long will it take to heal? She doesn't feel like cooking and is feeling really down.

I know that God doesn't give you more than you can handle but I am not sure what message he is trying to get across to me. He usually needs to get the baseball bat out for me and I am hoping I get the message soon.
