The Good Kind of Drama

The best drama in my life comes from Bella.

After independently completing her shower, where she used copious amounts of soap that didn't quite get rinsed out of sensitive areas, she experienced an unpleasant burning that made her cry. I explained that all she needed to do was rinse and pee and then all would be well. Rather than following this time-tested and sure-to-succeed advice, she chose instead to crumple to the floor and wail, "Whhhhyyyyy did God doooooo this to me!?"

My barely suppressed giggles did not help her feel better. However, her reaction certainly lightened MY mood and reminded me that, no matter what we are dealing with in life, how we react to it defines how important it becomes to us.

Now, perhaps we have a little religious instruction to complete with her...

Hey Suzanne,

I've been absent from reading your blog for awhile, what with preparing for a new job, planning a move, and helping to raise a mere two children. Tonight, my Dad directed me back with a mention of your recent news.

After catching up on the latest entries, and then giving Rebecca a long hug after she broke into tears, I found myself curious to know how many times you've put your thoughts and emotions into words you were generously willing to share with your blog followers.

Turns out that with this latest entry, there have been 519 such occasions since your blog's inception in 2006.

I can only imagine how many lives you've touched and how much comfort and humor you've generated.

May G-d grant you a full lifetime of opportunity to continue providing this gift to all those who cherish it.

Certainly, there will continue to be nightly prayers to that effect coming from our household.
