Good things that happened today:
Amazing springlike weather. Walking in the sun today – the sun was warm – beautiful. So Abby and I took a couple of walks and I took a lot of photos because the light was wonderful and nature offered up a smorgasbord of miracles.
On our walk this afternoon, we ran into an old friend and stopped and talked and caught up and it was good. We connected on much more than a surface level and when that happens, it feeds my soul.
It was a simple day: cleaning, laundry – just routine really. But it all felt good.
And I felt like I was healing. And then, walking this afternoon, a sledgehammer came out of nowhere and whacked my heart.
It happens. Grief is funny that way – it doesn’t move through an orderly progression of stages – it just does what it does.
I’m going to cook a nice dinner tonight and curl up with my book – nothing but light fluff these days – all happy endings, rainbows, puppy dogs and unicorns.
