Irony in its rawest form

My daughter and I were having a conversation last week about the state of our family. We discussed some history of things that have happened in the last 6-7 years. For me it was nice that it was a conversation about things that have come to pass. Our little family has had some...ummmm..."challenges" over those past 6-7 years.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. You've heard that expression, yes? Yes. Me, too. I've actually lived that expression. Is that even possible? To "live" an expression?

I digress. Back to this conversation I was having with Lindsay...

We had talked through much of the previous years and had a brief moment of silence when suddenly she looked at me and said in all seriousness, "Well, Mom, we survived. And we are better and everyone is healthy."

I hesitated at this remark. I looked at her, looked around and laughed. And then she laughed. We laughed together for about 5 minutes at the irony of her statement because this was the setting at the time of our conversation:


Yes, that's a hospital bed.


  1. Oy! What's she doing in a hospital bed?

  2. omg why is she in that hospital bed? Don't do that to us? Is everything ok?

  3. I suppose I should have added something about why she was there, eh? lol! Sorry...she is fine. Just some tummy issues that had her completely dehydrated. We're all good!

  4. not nice to leave us all hanging like that, crazy woman! i'm glad she's well, but don't do that again!
