I came home to this song blasting If I Die Young by the Band Perry . Doh! Not sure I like her song choice. But you do what you do to get through ya know. The lyrics rock me to my core.
Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She’ll know I’m safe with you when
She stands under my colours, oh and
Life ain’t always what you think it oughta be, no
Ain’t even grey, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well, I’ve had just enough time
I have some theories about Lulu’s situation. If it was bad, there is a liability potential and we would not be waiting until tomorrow to be seen. If the labs were bad or the ultrasound showed something bad, we’d be called in early, like yesterday. Might not have even been released. Therefore, we have to say “it’s nothing until it’s something” Wevhave to trust our choice in doctors who we’ve only just met. We have HOPE (damn you fickle bitch, do not let us down).
Plus thanks to Aunt K, we have Our Lady of Fatima on her 100th anniversary and blessed oil that we are treating with reverence. I have to think Jesus forgives and doesn’t consider the picture irreverent. Instead it’s a beautiful homage.
