Come and Go Blues

Things come and things go – desires, tastes, jobs, aches, opportunities, blogs. People.

Some comings make us happy, others sad. Same with goings.

Blood is thicker than water.

So what? So is mud, motor oil, and a whole host of other things. But I wouldn’t want these other things coursing through my veins.

And what does one have to do with the other? Welllll….since you asked.

Nuttin’. Unless….. Do you ever wish sometimes that those things that don’t go, would? That you would be so much better off if you could control and dictate what comes & what goes? If you have, then maybe you’ve even thought about this where your blood is concerned, as in where the blood that is coursing through your body came from. Or more specifically, who it came from.

Can’t change that. Try as hard as you like, will as hard as you want; its source will not be changed. Deny it, if you like, if you insist. Change your name, change your residence. But it doesn’t change “it”. Never has. Never will.

As the great philosopher, Anonymous, once said, “you can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your family.”

God, in His infinite Wisdom, determined for each one of us who we need to be bound to in this lifetime. We don’t always know why, but He would like for us to figure that out, I do believe. Figure it out, accept it, survive it, and even thrive in it.

Talk about your tall orders….
