That’s been my motto this month. Keep going, show up, do what has to be done. What else can a person do, really? I am so grateful to all my dear friends for the notes and emails and cards, all containing kind words of condolence. Thank you, everyone.
My daughter has been visiting from California for the last 10 days, and while the circumstances weren’t happy ones, we’ve shared a lot of joy and a lot of tears. Yesterday, we took my mom to Red Lobster for lunch and a visit, and we had a wonderful time. I’m going on a serious diet soon (oops, I said the D word) and will not bore you with the details, but it’s good-bye cheese biscuits for a while, so I wanted a last hurrah.
I’m back to work today, and glad of it. Wendy will be returning to California tomorrow, and she’s eager to get back to her new script, although we will miss each other and be very sad to part. For all that we lost two beloved friends, one four-legged and one two-legged, we’re both so glad we had this time together. Truly, sharing joy multiplies that joy, and sharing sorrow halves the hurt.
Life in the country. Had to replace the pump–we were without water for a while, and it sure makes you appreciate the stuff. Our late-arriving summer continues–for how long, who knows? It’s a moment-by-moment thing–blue skies and sunshine one minute, overcast the next. At least it’s not dull.
We’re doing okay here on the Triple L, and we all hope you are too.
