Worries

It’s one of those days–a tragedy happens and we grieve as a nation. I feel like these things are coming closer and closer together although who knows if that’s true or if I’m just more aware of it.

This one thing has reminded me off all the other worries that sit on my heart from day to day–a list that changes and shifts, but that is never totally gone.

I worry about

Guns. In schools. Killing children. A tragedy that you can never make sense of no matter how you try.

Charlie’s third ear infection in as many months–I suspect he’s lost his ear tubes. Will he need another set?

August’s upcoming ear tube surgery.

Louie’s frickin’ tongue. It’s still “tongue tied” and the way things are going, he’s going to need surgery to correct it. That’s three potential surgeries in 2013.  I shudder when I think about the childcare debacle that will be.

Food. Gluten. Genetically modified corn and it’s five bazillion derivitives. The spread of GM foods to all of our foods.

This crazy world we live in where sometimes it feels like everyone’s screaming about something, but none of it is important.

I’m not looking for answers. I’m just worrying, and watching, and hoping for the best.

Like we all do, I suspect.
