Life is certainly never fair...

I keep reading posts about how some people just “lurk” and never really make comments. I guess, I am one of the guilty ones. I make comments on a few posts, but I typically need to feel some common ground with the person I am commenting to/about. Needless to say, I have been in this blog world here at AdultFriendFinder for more the better part of 2006 and I have only made about 150 post and/or comments. I am averaging about one a day, and frankly it is all I can do with the hectic life I have chosen. I do find the time to read a few favorites and also to check out a new one here and there. One that I read every time there is new information is [blog farm_girl84] by farm_girl84. There is always a good laugh and a young girl, 22 I believe the profile says, who seems to know more about things than many of the women my age. I was doing my reading the other day and her post “Bad News from Home” was heart wrenching and it made me remember my granddad who was similarly afflicted. What made it worse was she posted back his age…I was stunned. He is a pup. His life is before him and he has been saddled, ironic and sad use of a word that FG has made me contemplate too often of late, with the fight of his life. All I could do is think to myself, why is a young person the beneficiary of such trauma? Hell, with some of the piss-poor decisions I have made in my life, I should have already been shaking hands with St. Peter or Beelzebub, which ever the case would be. The desert didn’t kill when W’s dad was in office; who knows how many miles and bucking horses and bulls never got the best of me; an alcohol-laden college career was no problem; thousands of hours in small airplanes, some of them in none too great of repair, hasn’t gotten me; dive school, jump school, SERE and various other nice places never got the best of me. Yet here is a teenager in for the fight of his life. Some things are just not in balance in my book.

Have any of you ever just had the feeling you get away with so much more than somebody else when you get in a situation like this? Is there ever really a semblance of fair in this world?

FG, I wished you well on your post; I am hoping that I might get a few others over there to offer their well-wishes as well.

This year has been a traumatic time for me...for many of the most heart wrenching was the death of a friend who died from the same cancer my father did. She was pregnant and I offered to raise her baby if she carried it to term.
Sadly mommy died 24 hrs. before the baby son who fought bravely but too weak to survive. It was a double blow. No life isn't fair but it gives me some peace that both son and baby are together in eternity.
