Not ready :-/

Someone in my timeline made a simple post: “Not ready. :-/”

It really doesn’t matter if we are ready.  Life just keeps coming.  The sun rises, the calendar turns and life just keeps going on….. regardless.

It’s like a freight train, rolling down the other side of the rockies…

It’s like the birth of a fifth child…

It’s like when you send that one page job to the high speed line printer…

It’s like when the ball hits the bat and your camera isn’t on…

It’s like when the rug gets caught in the vacuum cleaner and you know the belt is going to break…

It’s like when your 14 y/o daughter walks out in a stunning dress with her hair and make up all perfect for the first time and there’s a boy waiting…

It’s like when the car battery dies on that bitter cold morning when you are hosting a 7am meeting…

It’s like when the sherriffs car pulls up in front of your home…

It’s like when that first parent dies suddenly on the morning you were going to surprise them and take them out to lunch…

Not to sound existential, but our level of preparation just doesn’t matter to life.  Life happens whether we are ready or not.
