Sometimes I Wonder...

Sometimes I wonder where this is all going. Times are scary. People are losing their homes and their jobs. I wonder if I will be next. (not losing our home... but being unemployed) There are wars, and there is poverty, and the stock market keeps falling and falling and falling. I heard on the news today, "Has the stock market fallen as far as it can go?" I screamed at the television, NO! Unfortunately - no....

Sometimes I wonder... what my life would be like if I lived in a different country. In a country where women were considered second class citizens, and where we didn't have the same rights that we do in the wonderful USA. What would my days be like? Would I know that I wasn't being treated fairly? Or would I just "take it" and not know the difference?

Sometimes I wonder... what would it be like if we didn't have freedom of speech, freedom of choice, freedom of religion. That would not be an experience I would want to have. Even though many of us in the U.S. disagree with each other when it comes to politics and religion - it is so nice to know that THAT is our right! We live a great country.

Sometimes I wonder... what life would be like if it were like the John Lennon song, "Imagine". Peace and love and everyone happy and living together in harmony. That would be such a beautiful thing. I wonder if I will ever have an opportunity to experience life like that in the years I have left on this Earth? Probably not. But, that really WOULD be wonderful.

I don't know... maybe I'm just getting older. Maybe I'm just nostalgic for life as it was when I was young and carefree and didn't worry about these things.
I know that I feel blessed to be surrounded by my family, and to have the most wonderful friends, and that we all have our health. I feel blessed that I have a job that I enjoy and that I have a roof over my head and food on my table. But, I kinda like living in denial and not thinking about all the bad things that happen in the world. As I said to my friend the other day, "I rather enjoy living in CindyLand where everyone is happy and there isn't a care in the world."

I'll close for now... I'm headed back to "CindyLand". Have a happy weekend!

Wonderful post. I'm with you, wouldn't it be nice to live in peace and harmony. But there are just too many greedy and mean people out there. They are unhappy and they make life miserable for everyone else.

Have a wonderful Cindyland week-end.

What you call Cindyland, I say I'm going back and live in my bubble.

That was an interesting read. I came over from Old Lady Lincoln.

Bubbles are good. We've all got to have our "safe place", hopefully we aren't in the fetal position when we go there though.....

i think we all wonder like that too. we are living full time in a camper and i joke and call us homeless but i know we can afford to get a place anytime we want to. just waiting for a job is hard but knowing my husband will always have a pay check from the militray makes us feel so blessed.
i always said that about living in another country and having the freedom we americans have/
hugs to you
