I didn’t cry today. That’s not good or bad news, particularly, it’s just what it was. It isn’t that I felt too empty to cry–I didn’t. It isn’t that I was deliriously happy all day–I wasn’t. And it isn’t that I didn’t think of Kate at all today–I did. Several times actually. But I was content today, just doing ordinary things–it was a normal pre-December 19, 2014 day… and the pain in my side is gone.
Is that a start? I don’t know, but it feels fragile and like I want to protect and nurture this feeling… this peace…
Five Things I’m Grateful for Today:
- Our yard is greening up.
- I knitted today while I watched Outlander.
- Poppy sent Grandboy a subscription to the NWF’s Ranger Rick Jr. magazine–he couldn’t resist the otters.
- Yesterday’s writing conference made me start thinking about a new novel.
- I’m so blessed to have Connie in my life–it was fun to watch her and Husband in the kitchen together yesterday while they made supper for me and Liz and Lani and Alastair. They work well together and that’s a gift.
***Tonight’s picture has nothing to do with anything except that it made me smile–Grandboy loves reading enough to go off on his own and pull out a book… isn’t that amazing for a two-and-a-half years old?
