When I first started blogging it was with the intent to create a sort of history for my kids. Something I could share with them so they would know who their mom truly is, and a bit about our family……..
and it has turned into so much more.
I have a “family” online now that I never would have expected. I have found people that are supportive, empathetic and honest. People who do not hesitate to tell me to do something…..whether it is to “pull my head out of my ass” or to say “you are loved and respected”.
I am taking time today for me…..just me. Not going to spend a minute of my time today thinking about anything but what I want and need.
I started out with a cup of coffee…I even drank it while sitting on my front porch swing. Of course, I was wearing winter coat and cap as it is frigid out there, but there very fact I was on my swing in the bright sunshine made me feel enormously better.
I have been playing an online game and just sharing laughter, jokes and groans of “why did I allow this toon to go into that dungeon?” with friends.
I will take a nap after a lunch of chicken and spinach salad…just a touch of honey mustard dressing to liven things up.
I will watch my favorite movie before I go to bed…………
Today is about restoring some much needed peace into my life.
As Sonofa said “You’re no good to him if you wear down” and he is right.
Thanks Larry, my dearest friend, for reminding me that there is a time for every season.
Thank you Cage for your concern…I do tend to drive myself too hard, and am taking your thoughts to heart.
Thanks Harini for your friendship from that far away land…………someday I want my husband to go with me to see it.
Thank you to all of you for your prayers, your concerns,…….your love.
You all are the best!
