Tell Us: Is Life Fair?

Denise
ferris-wheel-822041_640I think caregiving challenges us to look at "fair" in a new light. I think of my sibling, who has caused so much heartache for my parents, who lives her life--vacations, concerts, trips to the beach and into the city--without any guilt. She visits my parents, causes a tornado and leaves without looking back to continue living her life.

That's when I really wonder about fair. Is it fair my parents live with heartache while my sibling enjoys the good life? Is my sibling's life of blessings fair? When do we get a chance to live the good life rather than watch from afar? When is it our turn?

I often remind myself that fair isn't for me to judge, that when I get stuck in what's fair I create my own unfair life. I try to remember that today's actions set the stage for tomorrow's peace of mind or regrets and that the choice is ours.

But, I'm still wondering: Is life fair?
