Sometimes even the blog doesn’t work. I have an issue that I’d like your thoughts on, but I find the whole thing difficult to write out. I used to have a person who I liked conversing with, who was also a sounding board, but that has been “limbo-d” (apparently there is no past tense for limbo) in the sense that I never know where I stand and am always feeling uncertain… The thing is that this person would actually understand and have something to say, but as I mentioned before the uncertainty chews away at me. Perhaps it is just me who is generally unsure of myself.
Anyway, on to something else; my eldest daughter has quiet a few friends who are all at the stage of getting cars, drivers licences and either working or going to Uni. There is one of these friends who seems to be having a hard time though and is doing extra studies to get higher grades. He does not have a car as the others do. Some of them have really old second-hand cars but, a car is a car, and at this stage of their lives it is what kids drive around in. This kid rode around on his bicycle, which he really needed and what happens?… A man walked up to him when he stopped and told him to give him his bike. The kid didn’t have any form of self-defence, and at that stage he said his only defence was to give the guy the bicycle. Horrible thing to happen to this kid when his bicycle was the only thing her really had 😦
