Visions of trains coming off the tracks immediately come to mind, but life has a habit of trundling along OK and then something smacks you down to send you off sideways, no matter how solid things may seem under you.
As a kid, I had the usual ideas of what adulthood held in store for me, husband, house, family, dog. I got it all, though not quite the way I’d imagined all those years ago,
I was once told that the reason my first marriage failed was because I got everything too easily. Some 40 years later I’m still trying to work that one out, but then the guy who said it didn’t know me or my then husband, our circumstances, or our struggles, so wrapped up in how well he’d done for himself from hard work that he felt everyone should see him as a model example. As things turned out, despite his success and all his hard work, it came at the cost of his own marriage of some twenty years.
This latest tilt has derailed the pair of us, but it’s not the end of the world, just an annoying inconvenience until we get back on track.
