“Why me? Why did this happen? How could I be in Westlife and then have nothing to show for it financially at the end of it? But its like, why not me? Thats just life. Its tough.

— Shane Filan —
“It is this that ruins churches, that you do not seek to hear sermons that touch the heart, but sermons that will delight your ears with their intonation and the structure of their phrases, just as if you were listening to singers and lute-players. And we preachers humor your fancies, instead of trying to crush them. We act like a father who gives a sick child a cake or an ice, or something else that is merely nice to eat
just because he asks for it; and takes no pains to give him what is good for him; and then when the doctors blame him says, ‘I could not bear to hear my child cry.’ … That is what we do when we elaborate beautiful sentences, fine combinations and harmonies, to please and not to profit, to be admired and not to instruct, to delight and not to touch you, to go away with your applause in our ears, and not to better your conduct.”
— John Chrysostom
“David what your mother did to you was wrong. Verry wrong.No child deserves to be treated like that. She’s sick.”
— Dave Pelzer
“We also fought about everything
like real sisters. We fought about money, bedrooms, whose car to take. Everyone of these fights was actually about something else
usually abandonment. I wanted to be first on her list and she wanted to be first on mine. I wanted all her attention, all her love, all her care. I wanted her to be my mommy, my daddy, my sister. She wanted the same from me. She wanted to be fed, cared for, nurtured without limit. She wanted backrubs, poems, pastas, and to be left alone when she needed to be left alone. She wanted to come before my writing, my child, my man. And I wanted no less from her.
She was sick at first, so I took care of her. Then I was jealous of the attention and she took care of me. We had gone down into the primal cave of our friendship. we had felt loved enough to rage and fight, to show the inside of our naked throats and our bared fags, and the friendship took another leap toward intimacy. Without rage, intimacy can’t be.”
— Erica Jong
“You’re nothing but a sick child molester, and if were up to me, I’d toss you into the seventh circle of hell and walk away smiling. Now get out of my way- or do I have to make you?”
— E.L. James
“Was it the act of giving birth that made you a mother? Did you lose that label when you relinquished your child? If people were measured by their deeds, on the one hand, I had a woman who had chosen to give me up; on the other, I had a woman who’d sat up with me at night when I was sick as a child, who’d cried with me over boyfriends, who’d clapped fiercely at my law school graduation. Which acts made you more of a mother?
Both, I realized. Being a parent wasn’t just about bearing a child. It was about bearing witness to its life.”
— Jodi Picoult
“Though her head was aching too much for her to reason with herself, she could think of nice things – the Cumberland hills, her lambs, her Nannie, who had taught her this trick of detachment. “When you’re sick or sorry, child” she had said, “think of other things as much as you are able. It’s just practice, Start young and you’ll get the trick of it.” And most astonishingly, after a little while of going back to childhood and remembering Nannie in her blue print dress, with her white apron on and her sleeves rolled up, turning on the bath-water and humming a little song as she did it, she fell asleep.”
— Elizabeth Goudge
“Nothing’s scarier than having a sick child, and one so newly born, and so vulnerable. It’s the worst thing for a parent.”
— Kenneth Oppel
“I treat my heart like a sick child and gratify its every fancy.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
“If you treat a sick child as an adult and a sick adult as a child, it usually works out pretty well.”
— Black Hawk
“”But even if he has been wicked,” pursued Rose, “think how young he is; think that he may never have known a mother’s love, or the comfort of a home; that ill-usage and blows, or the want of bread, may have driven him to herd with men who have forced him to guilt. Aunt, dear aunt, for mercy’s sake, think of this, before you let them drag this sick child to a prison, which in any case must be the grave of all his chances of amendment.””
— Charles Dickens

“I cannot go to school today”
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
“I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry.
I’m going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I’ve counted sixteen chicken pox.
And there’s one more – that’s seventeen,
And don’t you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue,
It might be the instamatic flu.
I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I’m sure that my left leg is broke.
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button’s caving in.
My back is wrenched, my ankle’s sprained,
My ‘pendix pains each time it rains.
My toes are cold, my toes are numb,
I have a sliver in my thumb.
My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.
My elbow’s bent, my spine ain’t straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There’s a hole inside my ear.
I have a hangnail, and my heart is …
What? What’s that? What’s that you say?
You say today is ………….. Saturday?
G’bye, I’m going out to play!”

I have a sick child. Not sick sick just flu sick.
It’s made me think about how lucky we are and how strong parents can be. Fur parents too. Before children I was a mum to a cat and seeing her after she was hit by a car was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Wall-E is my third child and I’m more over protective of him at times than I am of my own children.
Wow, that sounds bad. I’m not saying I’m not over protective of my children, I’m just saying that I care for my cat too and I’m not undermining any parents, fur or otherwise.
Lucky may be the wrong word. I don’t know what the right word is. Maybe, fortunate is the word. We are very fortunate that we haven’t had to deal with a very sick child. Every night I hug my children thanking the universe that they are healthy and happy.
Well, maybe I don’t do that every night but I should. I should be more thankful, more grateful for my life. I really need to print off more inspirational posters to put around my desk which I am not sitting at. Maybe not.
I have a slight obsession with inspirational quotes and posters. In fact, I have one as my phone background. This one;
I don’t know if they work but I like the thought and look of them. I don’t have them posted all over my bathroom mirror though. The mister would not like that. I also don’t have that many anywhere except for my
boards. Which, I don’t really visit as much as I should. Wow, I fail at inspirational posters. How is that even a thing?
I can’t leave this post on that crappiness. Maybe I don’t fail so much and if I do then all I need to do is read and pin more inspirational quotes. Quotes that remind me to be more thankful and grateful for the health of my children and family. In the meantime here’s one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite inspirational people.
