ADHD Made Me Do It

Survive Life with Laughter

Religious Curiosity Of An Innocent Child

Brief story here…otherwise we run the risk of a proper long ass rant on the lack of humanity no matter the religion!

Little history for context!. As you are all aware, Christmas just passed recently…and for some religions that represents the “birth of Christ”.  To commemorate…or idolize…this birth, many churches set up nativity scenes of the circumstances surrounding this birth! They have wisemen and mommy and daddy and a donkey and an angel and a manger!

When we bought our house, we liked the fact that one neighbour is a church since they dont have many loud all night drunken parties and the graves don’t do much stalking thru bathroom windows!

This church put up a lovely nativity scene that the kids would walk to go look at most evenings.

Now, the kids are by no means religious…and we are by no means finatical religious parent/step-parent! My parents are practising Muslims and my husband’s parents dont really affiliate with a religious group.  Oddly enough though, his grandmother attends the church beside our house – but she has never pulled out the bible for thumping anytime i have seen or talked to her!

Me being ADHD and rebellious…i believe in God but struggle with man-made religions…Though i do value some teachings from muslim and buddhist faiths!

So the kids have very little understanding of religion…and I believe their mother doesn’t attend church either!. The kids only know what media shows them and what school-yard lectures they hear from their friends!

Just days ago, my husband and step son were cooking dinner…and having natural normal child to adult conversation…which is usually question/answer time!  Here is a dialogue of their conversation:

Son: Daddy, is the fairy real?

Dad: What fairy?

Son: The fairy that put Jesus in the bucket!

Dad: (trying to keep a straight face). There is no fairy.

Son: (pointing to the church) Well you need to go walk to God’s house and see the front where the fairy put Jesus in the bucket!

Dad: (walks away to laugh and returns to explain). No son, that is not a fairy it is an angel and it isn’t a bucket!

This seemed to satisfy the curiosity, the conversation ended and the cooking continued!

Just in case you were wondering…they made meatball sandwiches and they were yummy!!

Hello World, I have finally arrived!!

Today is the BIG day….I am actually posting the introduction of my blog to my blog…Yippee!!  How does this finally happen – well let’s start by giving credit where it’s due…so THANK YOU LUKE (you know who you are O’Regan) for finally setting me up on the notorious WordPress….and now I can share….laughs and vents and luuurves and hates!! 

So many years I procrastinated writing this blog….always putting together story highlights and even making notes in my smart phone diary to write the full story for this blog….then something else catches my eye…or I hear something more interesting…or get caught up in conversation with my sock monkey hat…and the blog alarm gets “dismissed” for another day.  Then the day hits…the doctor says “hey you have the breast cancer and we think it’s spread to your bones..we consider this stage 4 cancer and there’s no treatment or cure…your pretty much dead”.  Of course we will get to the full story of surviving cancer as well as the many many other stories of my foolish antics along the journey of this life!! 

I know you can’t wait…I can barely wait myself….but they say a valuable life lesson is patience. So, for now lets just relish in the thought that I am actually achieving one long term goal….and once I fully understand how this blogging works as a blogger….I will add pages and pages of crazy comical life lessons!!
