Am I grateful that the blinds are damaged?
I sure as hell am not grateful that my friend’s child damaged baby girl’s bedroom blinds today.
And I sure as hell as hell am not grateful that she clearly saw and tried to cover it up, or else how the hell did the blinds look all rolled up and tidy?
And I sure as hell am not grateful that my friend referred to my daughter as ‘cheeky’ when her child is a destroyer!
And I sure as hell am not grateful that she doesn’t go as far as to invite people over to her house which she keeps untouched from other children, yet is more than happy to go to others’ where her children will wreak havoc!
No, I sure as hell am not grateful for ANY of those things.
What I do hold consolation in is the fact that these blinds, although new and untouched (until today), will eventually be replaced.
Not in the next year or so. Maybe a 5 year project. So I will have to look at baby girl’s damaged blinds for the next however many years thinking of my friend’s child’s face.
But at least they’re not our ‘ideal’ blinds.
Trying really hard right now. Trying to summon forth the glass half-full view of post #1…
