Sometimes the World Slides
And you find yourself standing on the sidelines watching people you love are go through hard things that you have no control over. You can't stop it. You can't fix it. You can only stand there with arms around them, holding tight till the world stops shifting.
Sometimes we'd rather have things in neat little packages tied up with telephone cords (quirky but predictable). We're not big on surprises. We like to know what's coming. But sometimes you can't. And it sucks.
Sometimes you need a diversion like the Lizzie Bennet Diaries to remind you that life can be fun.
