Chapter 3, Page 29, Book 18

Life can be like a roller coaster with it’s ups and downs.  What matters is whether you are keeping your eyes open or closed during the ride and who is next to you.

Ana Ortega

The roller coaster of life 

With peaks of joy and valleys of heartache, life is a roller coater ride. the rise and fall of which defines our journey. It is both scary and exciting at the same time.

Sebastian Cole

The rise and fall of circumstances can wear on us. We’ve all been on it: zooming to the crest of elation, plunging to the depths of despair, whipping around changes in the direction of our desires and will.  But it is our choice to enjoy the ride.

 There are those who say growing older is tough. It can be. It all depends where you are sitting on the roller coaster that day or time. Enjoy the ride while you're at the top, it will give you strength to hold on when you're down at the bottom.

Hold on and enjoy the ride!

Strange or sweet co-incidence on our daily walk Sherry and I talked about this subject. We have had some SUPER ROLLER COASTER rides with our sons. We survived because we could talk. We vowed last night to remember who we are riding with. VERY GOOD entry.
Love from down here,
jack & Sherry

What an apt analogy for our lives since leaving Phoenix! :) I kept reminding Tom, "Hopefully, we're going to laugh about this someday." It's good to be off the roller coaster for now!

I can't tell you how many times in my life I have felt like I am on a roller coaster ride and some "drops" were scarier than others. A great post! xo Diana
