Unfair things happen to good people. It’s a fact.

In Announcements on January 3, 2011 by Naoko Takano

A bit of a depressing post; you’ve been forewarned…

Do any of you know someone who is a perfectly good person but who just seems to attract bad luck?  I do.

She’s a well-meaning, kind-hearted woman who could never be cruel, vindictive, or deceptive towards anyone, yet tragedy always seems to befall her.  Whenever something seems to go well for her, life steps in and gives her a good kick, as if to say “And you thought you were going to be happy.”  It’s some cruel joke, some sort of effort the Forces that Be constantly make in order to cut down someone who really did nothing except maybe be a little naive and believe that this thing called Life was finally working out for her.

This woman has had so many tragedies in her life it seems that if one were to write them into a script, it would instantly be rejected by Hollywood, with everyone saying “This is so unbelievable!!  You can’t have this many things go wrong in a person’s life!  It’s impossible.”  But it indeed is very possible.

That person is my mother.  Someone very near and dear to her just died today, after a sudden diagnosis of cancer and 6 weeks in and out of the hospital.

Needless to say I am not feeling particularly able to blog much right now.
