I'm OK, You're OK

Guess what. Just the fact that I pondered that heart-achey situation described in yesterday's post, and took some time to write about it, helped heal my sadness over it! Isn't it amazing how that works? I think I just needed time to process and figure out in my heart what some things meant... and I'm pretty at peace with it now. I've had a happier attitude at work since I wrote that entry.

Thanks for your nice thoughts about my healing and all... what would we do without friends??? I know I'd be lost.

The picture above is a house we used to live in. Our kids were born when we lived there, so I have some good memories of little feet going pitter patter (and crash, bang) all over that house. See the big evergreen in front? My hubby and our daughter planted that when she was 3 or 4. It was shorter than she was at the time! And the two boulevard trees? One was planted by us, rescued from a shady spot where it was struggling and had bent to reach the sun... our neighbor was so sure it would not survive. But look at it! Gorgeous, in't it??
I'm thrilled that tomorrow is Friday. Hooray!!!!!

I'm glad that writing about it brought you peace. Sometimes just getting things out helps SO much!

Love the picture of your old house and the trees that are turning pretty colors! HELLO FALL!

I am very sensitive about what others say too. I try to live my life without considering other opinions but it is very hard. I am in a situation right now with my mother where some family members are encouraging me to do something I don't want to do. I am confident in my decision but they question me. Good luck.

Good for you! We often tell our children and our loved ones that we "need to let it out" and we often forget that we should do it ourselves. I'm glad that things have turned around for you!

What a beautiful Autumn setting!
