A different road to travel.

Those who have followed me for awhile, know I tend to be chipper and positive.
The death of my oldest son, in May, has put me on a different road.
One I had not planned on, with many valleys.
As an artist, I have always enjoyed the shadows for that is where you find the secret joys, the ones not so obvious. A bit frightening at times, but thinking of the good keeps you going along.
The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand ...

As an artist, I have always enjoyed the shadows for that is where you find the secret joys, the ones not so obvious. A bit frightening at times, but thinking of the good keeps you going along.
The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand out, with contrasts. Colors dance and harmony comes to view.
As a gardener, the deeper evergreen colors are cooling and refreshing, along with the pops of a flower, not expected.
So it is with my life. I must live in the shadows, for now, with pops of amazing light.
My faith leads me through it all and grows ever stronger.
Friends and family, my little Tigger and Kenny himself, being closer than I think, are there to lean on, along the way.
Do I think about losing weight and health the same way I did?
No.
I am kind to myself, have good days and bad.
Take walks and think thoughts and pray.
Stretch for peace of mind and to feel closer to my 57 years than older.
Sometimes I feel so old now. It snaps me into drinking more water.
I know I will see Kenny again, but until then I need to take care of me, not really for myself, but for my other two children who are still living.
There are moments of light left.

Chris, thank you for the soup (goodie) I do appreciate it! You are right, we have a lot to look forward to with our winter challenge. And I can't wait to see how many goals we meet over the next few weeks!

Thanks for my hot cider. I have never drank it warm, just cold. I am going to have to buy some and try warming it up. Thanks for the goodie.
