PHONE CALLS

A friend was over tonight and the phone kept ringing. Both daughters and a woman who talked a mile a minute and then signed off without a goodbye. I said, "Are you still there?" She wasn't.

She's a lovely woman who has a plethera of problems and I adore her but not as much as I love my dear daughters. How I wish I could make everything better for my family. I would foul things up royally. They wouldn't have any growth because I'd solve everything. They wouldn't get any stronger because Mommy would sweep in and make everything easy and pretty and even smelling nice.

And the woman on the phone and the dear friend? I'd solve their problems too and then where would they be?

I'd foul things up royally. I really would.

I would like to make things better in the world but it is better to let the world figure things out for itself.

yeah its hard to know when to FIX something and when to let them handle it....

it is indeed a tough call sometimes whether fixing something is the right thing or not, not sure there is ever a correct answer
