Sometimes stuff just piles up. I mean crazy big piles. That’s my lately–death of a loved one, a busy wedding, new projects, and really sick kids. Then, in the middle of my whining, I remember to say, “so what?”
Life is. It’s as hectic as we make it; it’s as awful or wonderful as we make it. Most of the stuff we worry about doesn’t matter.
(Funny unintentional discovery: while looking for a quick image of ‘piles,’ Google Health pointed out that’s another word for hemorrhoids. “Hemorrhoids are painful, swollen veins in the lower portion of the rectum or anus,” says Google. Piles: two different kinds of pain in the ass.)
