Power #MicroblogMondays

I was going to post about Hubby’s dad’s failing health, but I decided against it.  As if posting my fears on the internet would somehow make them come to fruition.  As if I could jinx our plans to visit in December.  Thank the universe I’m not that powerful.

  1. Oh Daryl, I hope that all goes well for your father-in-law and that he’ll soon be the picture of health, preparing to meet his grandaughter (presumably for the first time?) in December. I know what you mean though, about feeling like a thought will tempt the fates, or the gods, or whatever…

  2. Oddly, I often have the opposite approach. As in, if I voice my worry, it won’t come true because then I would seem like I had some kind of second sense about things, which I clearly don’t. I hope everything works out well for you guys and your trip.

  3. I was just talking to my therapist on Saturday about needing to constantly frame every discussion of life with children or cycle success with a loud *if* in front of it, as though some slip of foolhardy optimism could spoil it. And then I acknowledged that I do not have magical superpowers. I hope your father-in-law proves resilient and makes a recovery!

  4. No, you’re not that powerful. But I know what you mean. My mother is ill, and I’ve debated blogging more about that or not. Wishing you, your husband, and FIL well.
