In the blink of an eye, we lose someone and our world changes forever, we change forever. Even knowing accidents happen every day does not blunt the anguish we experience. It does not negate the stages of grief. It does not lessen the pain when it happens to us. When you wake up tomorrow, live completely, don’t hold back, and never fear telling someone you love them. Give away that extra hug that’s inside of you. You can’t use it any other way.
Have I ever mentioned how much I hate painting french doors? Well, I do. I love the doors, the light they let in, the ‘look’ – I just hate painting them. One more piece of the inside trim project can be checked off. The list is whittling down.
My grandsons are almost here for a spring break visit. What a joy it will be to have them in my arms once again. We have highly important plans, things like s’mores, sleep-overs with their cousin, and putting up a tee-pee. Which reminds me, I must go grocery shopping so I have all of the necessary ingredients for s’mores. Next comes my youngest granddaughter and we’ll have to do s’mores then too. I’m sure hoping the weather cooperates. Too bad a person can’t shop for that!
The book project is coming along. There are many pieces to that puzzle too, and my motivation is outside, not inside sitting at a desk, so it hasn’t been easy to get organized and get with it. I’m really not sure how to deal with this problem of wanting to garden and hike and just do – well really anything outside rather than in. Spring Fever I suppose. I’ll keep trying, but excuse me for now, I’m going for a walk.
