So, here I am just chilling out. The front yard and porch is full of folks. But I just feel tired and want to relax and not think. Playing Mahjong Titans.
The past few weeks have took a lot of twists and turns. Blessings and trials coming seemingly hand in hand. I am so far behind on alerts that I don't even know where to start. Haven't decided yet if I'm even going to try.
School starts on Monday here. Hannah is ready for it as far as clothes and supplies go. I'm not sure about her, herself. She really hasn't spoken of it much one way or the other. She's not a baby anymore. Hardly even a little girl. I know I'm going to blink twice and then she'll be a young woman.
I look at our financial situation. And at Pete's unanswered health issues. The things we always are putting off until things "get better." And I don't really get depressed. But I do get very thankful that I have a Father who is preparing a place where one day I shall dwell and be totally contented. No aches. No weariness.
Then I look at friends, co-workers and acquaintances and the circumstances many find themselves in with their children, their health issues, aging parents, relationships torn, and even threat of homelessness and I know that I am truly blessed even right in the here and now! I have two fine, healthy children who are decent, caring and loving and helpful people. A little spoilt.....but who can blame me.
Where am I going with this? I don't even know. I just feel reflective tonight. Quiet, but not sad. Relaxed. Content.
I may start posting in my private journal again, Barefoot & Bra-less. So, if you were ever a reader you may want to update your alerts, find your link. If you are a regular reader or friend and don't have it, just email me and I'll get you set up.
Enjoy the J-land 5 celebration! There are many entries posted to the special journal: J-land Anniversary Blog. And we have the chats tomorrow! Guido has posted the times.
