... in the balance...

A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life. William Arthur Ward

I warned the boys about the ball going into the lake, off the shed roof, into the neighbors flowers, and down into the fire pit.  I should know better.  Next time I'll add, getting stuck up high in the tree wedged between two sticks!  Only my boys could achieve this result.  It took the marshmallow roasting stick to poke it out it out of the tree.  

I think the ball is pretty symbolic of our crazy week coming up.  School starts tomorrow!  And while the boys are off at their first day, I'll be getting lab work done, seeing Dr. Panwalkar and then having chemo.  Our perch may be a bit precarious and a little "up in the air," but we're hangin' in there for the duration... and our sense of humor is completely intact! Sometimes you just have to laugh... 


  1. Indeed, yes you do. Have a good week, Vicky!....

  2. thinking of you this week my sweet friend...xo
    love the 'word picture' xo

  3. They say laughing is the best medecine.
    Thinking of you and praying for you :-)

  4. Laughter is the best medicine. My grandson starts 8th grade today ... time truly does fly.

  5. lol if they tried to get it in on purpose this way it wouldn't have worked. I know, this happens to me all the time lol
    Hope your day is not too difficult tomorrow.

  6. Yup, that ball....I'm laughing!!! Thinking of you this week.

  7. Oh boy. Yes, that ball seems symbolic of a lot of things, including that sometimes we get unexpectedly hung up and need a marshmallow poker to get us unblocked. :) (Some lessons are more literal than others.)

    Thinking of you as you head into these next days, Vicky, including the transition into school, and your need to continue being positive through treatments and testing. Don't forget, you are NOT alone! XXOO


I welcome what you have to say. Thanks for taking the time to grace me with your thoughts and words!
