Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by for another coffee chat. How are you? How are you adapting to the changing seasons? I hope you’re taking good care.
If we were having coffee… I would be having an internal debate about whether to be real or a Pollyanna. I could very easily yammer on about positive thoughts and inane things like the weather. But I value your time and I don’t want to waste it.
If we were having coffee… I would ultimately choose to share the reality of the last month with you.
-In the last month, my brother died unexpectedly. I wasn’t told how dire the situation was until the day before they terminated life-support.
-In the last month our much loved cat was diagnosed with fibrosarcoma, an inoperable cancerous tumor in her mouth.
-In the last month I have had to argue with medical providers about my disabled brother being overmedicated and demand that some of the medication be responsibly titrated down.
-In the last week my husband had outpatient surgery and is now recovering.
And this all seems much more challenging as the days get shorter and the weather gets more harsh. I always feel like I can cope better when the days are longer and the temperatures are gentle. Winter seems to always add a layer of angst to any situation… At least for me.
If we were having coffee… I would apologize for unloading all of that. But that’s my reality right now. And right now is all we have. And I choose to believe that as I move forward into the next now, and the next now, and the next now… until I have significant space between this now and a future now… Everything will cycle back because it always does. And I will have more energy and feel more positive! I know that there will be a not too distant now when I will laugh and sing badly in the shower and look forward to a gentle tomorrow! And I hope that you will stop by and join me and laugh with me at bad jokes and gasp as we both watch another beautiful day unfold!
And you my friend? Have your days been gentle or challenging? Whatever is happening, I wish you deep peace within. And I’m grateful that you stopped by!
I’m glad you were here💜
