Roller Coaster

I hate them. I hate everything about them. The seats, the feeling of falling, the motion sickness. There is nothing good that I experience from them.

And I was told this week that life is like a roller coaster. So, in light of that, I have to find the positive!

Ok positive things that happened the last few weeks (which I guess would resemble the quiet gentle climb to the top of the first roller coaster hill?)
** great marriage seminar at church
** a good week at work with a re-organization of my department looming in my favor
** watching my toddler run around the Home and Garden show, only pausing long enough to dance at the player piano

Now for the plunging, sinking, tumultuous fall after the gentle climb.
** Olivia getting the stomach flu
** The realization that marriage really is something you always have to work on
** More tests and continued illness for me
** Continuous job hunt for my Babe

So... if life is a roller coaster, I hope it is full of sparkly flashing lights. Maybe that would take my mind off of the "roller" and more on the "coast".

Awww, this is cute and sad. I think people who say life is like a roller coaster are those who enjoy roller coasters, not usually those who hate them. Life is full of ups and downs, and during the downs, we can be sure there is an up coming again. Maybe more like the Amy Grant song about wanting to live on the mountain top, fellowshipping with the Lord, but knowing that there is work to be done in the valleys. Maybe that's a better image for you.
