I woke up today with a large black cloud over my head. I don’t feel grateful, happy or content. What I realize is that this is not something that I should expect all of these “gifts” are something you have to earn and work for. Maybe it’s because it’s March in the mountains, sun one day snow another or the best yet mud which my dogs walk through, dig in and spread all over the house and car. Or another reason which I am sure anyone with children or better yet teenagers can relate to is my fifteen year old daughter who has not learned that verbalizing every discomfort in her life is not appropriate. I know things are bad when I don’t feel like knitting.
So I recognize where I am emotionally now lets talk about what to do or better yet not what to do. First I will not take my frustrations out on other people like my ex-husband who replied when I texted him he could not help today with Remi’s upbringing as he was flying to Florida to be with his girlfriend and he is sorry isn’t available. I will not list all of my grievances when asked “how are you today”? I will not yell at my dogs. I will not drink. My oldest daughter bought me this card when I was 3 months sober and I was going through hell, this will be hanging on my wall.
I have some wonderful art that I am carrying in Henrietta’s little reminders to feel grateful and happy. Signs of wisdom they are called the words are simple but hold incredible meaning, words we forget to repeat every day. ” My mom did the best she could.”Also signs of art because what a better way to pull yourself out of a deep funk than some wonderful art to make you smile. These pieces will make great gifts for friends or little reminders for yourself. They come framed in glass and a cream silk ribbon for hanging.
