Have you ever heard that old expression, life dealt you a bad hand? Think about it for a minute. It really would seem at times that we are playing a never ending game of cards with life. Sometimes he deals us a good hand, sometimes a bad hand. The real trouble is, whenever you get comfortable and win a couple of hands in a row, life, being a sore loser, flips over the card table and leaves you scrambling around playing fifty-two card pick up.
As soon as life seems to be taking on a manageable rhythm, a manageable roller coaster of ups and downs, you go around that blind corner and over an unforeseen edge. In the end though, both in cards and roller coasters, there is an end. You will manage to pick up all the cards eventually. The ride does stop somewhere. The question is if you will get back on for another ride, start another game of cards, or if you will quite. That's where we get to see who we really are.
