A Welcome Return
November 10, 2014
For the first time in months I have started to see things again. You know, a tiny little detail which has made me smile, or something which has made me want to pick up my camera and take a picture. I can barely begin to tell you how good that makes me feel. Like the days of grey have been infused with delicious snippets of colour once again. I'm beginning to feel a bit more like me again, and it is so wonderful.
Without going into detail right now, I have been ill. Miserably so. Spending the last few months either in bed or at one medical facility or another and trying to hold it all together. Today is not the day for that long, long story, but let me say that it is not all bad news. Lots has happened, and at the same time, so much hasn't happened. But anyway, I'd love to share with you a few things which are feeling so good to me right now.
Parents. Both mine and my Honey's who have given so much time, energy and love to help us out, and travelling long distances to be with us during this tough period. I am so grateful for their support.
Knowing that even though the garden is a complete mess, there is much beauty within the chaos if I choose to look at the bits which make me happy Slowly, over time it will get cleared up and everything will feel so much sweeter knowing I have appreciated even the weeds.
Toast. There is nothing like plain toast when you just can't stomach anything, and even if it comes right back out, it isn't all that bad. Especially when that toast is from a loaf that your girlfriend hand made for you and bought round still warm in a tea towel, then left swiftly because she knew you couldn't cope with a conversation. Seriously, I have the best friends.
Sunshine. Spring sunshine. Warm, but not too hot. My Honey recently laid out some pillows under a quilt on the deck which I flopped upon and It. Was. So. Good. I almost cried. It felt like a little present.
So, there is my "feel good" list for the day!
I'm hoping to be here in this space again soon, all going well. Although instead of sharing my usual crafting adventures, it is more likely to be some simple snippets of my quieter days.
