Once again, I'm doing a Thursday Truth Is, as inspired by Juli over at Surviving Boys.
Truth is, I kind of miss the craziness of the A/Z challenge, even though it was getting weary to keep up with it all.
Truth is, hubby found himself in a courtroom last Friday contesting a traffic ticket he got. Truth is, the police man didn't show up. Truth is, case dismissed. Truth is, I think "code enforcement" in this particular case equalled "revenue for the city" though I don't fault the police because they are only doing what they are told to do (blog post may follow on all the details).
Truth is, son and friends partied a little too much one night and decided taking a taxi was in their best interest. Truth is, all four got a ticket for not wearing a seat belt in the back of a cab (four passengers, three seat belts ) (and driver got a ticket for having too many people in his cab even though he told them "to come on in"). Truth is, he made the best decision to get into a cab, next time maybe he'll have to count seat belts and choose a different cab or dump one of his friends.
Truth is May 2nd was the anniversary of my parents' wedding; they would have been married 61 years. Truth is May 3rd was my mom's 93th birthday if she was still alive. Truth is, she's been gone seven and a half years and I was getting to the point of acceptance, still missing her and loving her, but not as sad as before until I saw this picture my sister posted on her FB page on my mom's birthday. I hadn't seen this picture before, it was a "random" shot taken by a family member at her wedding; not the posed photographer's shots I had seen. Seeing their happiness and their love for each other got to me, knowing that six short years later she would be widowed and raising three young kids on her own. I just love the look on their faces; I just thought for a minute "what if".
Truth is, I think Koda is going blind. It saddens me, but potentially inevitable with him having diabetes. We're learning to adjust making sure he doesn't get startled if we walk up to him and when throwing treats to him making sure we do it at an angle he might be able to see it.
Truth is, I don't know what is up with email these days as it relates to comments left on blogs, but I have a lot of blogs I comment on that I get a notice that the email didn't go through. Comment is on the blog, but no email about comment is being received by the recipient. So if I lately have commented on your blog and you haven't gotten an email notification, do check out your blog and check comments there. I'm finding I have to do the same myself with my blog. Can't quite figure out how to fix it either and it is just on certain blogs I follow, not all blogs I follow.
Truth is, I'm thankful for each of you that come and visit me and enjoy reading what I have to write.
Truth is, God is good. All the time. No matter what.
