Life Ain't Fair



Was so excited to hear some news From our dear friends Lynda and Al About to embark on an exciting cruise What could possibly go afoul Lynda's had Parkinsons for many years Needs a wheelchair to get around Al was faithfully pushing her along A bump and Lynda went down! Tragedy struck without any warning Ninety minutes aboard the ship Landed on her arm breaking her wrist Put an end to their exciting trip Imagine all the pain Lynda endured As if she hasn't suffered enough X-rays showed her wrist was shattered Recovery was going to be tough Some people happily dance through life As healthy as all get out Others are prone to great misfortune To Lynda that's what life's all about! © Jack Ellison 2013

    If Lynda was aboard that cruise ship that lost power... I say she's the luckiest persen there is ... to have got off ahead of time... Life is a pain... but it's all in how you look at things... I hope she gets better soon...When I broke my toe... I tore a lot of ligaments... Say la vie... I think I knew her in another life... and we were sisters... OUCH!

    Jack; I agree with you. Life sometimes is not fair. My Mom was always a very active person, but the last 3 1/2 years of her life - she spend not talking, not being able to walk, her legs were cut off. She spend that time in a hospital intil she passed away. We just hope that with all the suffering - they gain a piece of heaven. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    So sorry for your friend. It makes you think about what is important and to make the most of our health while we have it.
