Life is like a box of Chocolates.

In one of my favorite movies “Forest Gump”, his mom uses a statement to help him understand that we really don’t understand. She says “life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna get”. I would like to amend her statement to “Life is like a box of diet chocolates”. Even if I find the list of chocolates and find a flavor I like when I bite into it something still isn’t right! Maybe it is the season I am in, ever time I think something is going my way the other shoe falls. A few weeks ago someone hit my son’s car. The guy is going to pay for it and I was thinking I would just let the dent stay and use the money to buy badly needed tires. Then the car breaks down. I am thankful that I can cover the repair now but it would have been nice to get a little ahead instead of breaking even. Some times it feels like I am shoveling coal into a steam train. I shovel faster and faster and still the train keeps going slower and slower. I know it is a season, and I don’t want to come across as ungrateful. I just saw all news about Oklahoma and they are in real need, I just like using this blog to vent every once in a while. It’s like therapy, only much cheaper!
