Picture this...a computer that gets much use suddenly the battery begins the decline until finally the warning flashes..."4 % of the battery left, either charge the battery or shut down will occur risking the work you've been so diligently doing." Or something like that.
As is the regular thing to do, you plug in the computer expecting to see the little icon change to a happy plug vs the dry battery. But nothing happens. Nothing. You try another outlet. You wriggle the connections. You frantically try yet another outlet.
The computer blacks out.
This is why there is no picture with my post today. I'm borrowing a computer to blog. Sad, sad, sad.
I am under warranty and we'll see how that pans out. In the meantime I'll be doing my best to keep posting.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
