Wow! The summer came and went so fast. I had so many good intentions of posting throughout the summer but I didn’t. You have to get back on the horse sometime and better late than never right? Funny how those statements can make me feel so much better 🙂
My summer was busy, yes. But not so busy that I could not take time to post. I checked out. My photography work kept me busy and really took all my “happy” energy every day. My mentally ill daughter was living at home and with no car, I was her means of transportation to work, meetings and other events she requested to go to. I prayed daily for her, and still do, to start making better choices but sadly she is not there yet. It does depress me. I do feel helpless and sad. I also feel angry, mad and frustrated. Those three “c’s” chant in my head like a mantra…
So I am turning the page. She is out of our home again. I am moving into a time of busy social activities and less business for a time. I am looking forward to cooler mornings, walks with the dogs, coffee with my husband and travel. A weekend in the mountains, listening to a great concert, attending a Broadway musical, trips to DC and Tucson, my 35th high school reunion are gifts I am going to cherish.
I am grateful that I can forgive myself for my mistakes. I am grateful that God forgives me even more! I am so glad I can keep on writing even after two months off.
