You know when you have that kind of day. Things are up in the air, you're worried about someone and how things may be progressing. It's that gut wrenching, awful sense of stress that just feels awful.
I may be getting older, or wiser :) but today instead of falling into all kinds of drama, I thought about a river. I put all the stressors into the river and let them flow past me. Everything that was yucky and couldn't be acted upon, only worried upon. I decided not to do the worry part, but watch the river instead. The pieces I need to think about will flow to the top later.
I'm happy about this river. It worked for me today.

Yesterday I really had a hard day. I was down right lazy. I was so wanting comfort food and gave in to ordering Chinese for dinner. I was rather frustrated with myself.
Today as I looked at the calendar I remembered the date, June 10th. 20 years ago today my mother died. She was an amazing woman, mother, teacher, single parent. She left me lessons of always being a learner, to enjoy reading mysteries and to always remember family is first.
So today I was reminded that though our heads might not "get it", our bodies remember those time of pain and joy that we've had in our life.
I remembered so much today.

Ready to Celebrate
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
It's been an exciting week, my sister is in from Denver for work, and my sister from Chicago will be coming here tomorrow...then all three of us will be leaving on Thursday for Denver.
Time to celebrate. My middle sister will have a big birthday with a zero at the end. So the three girls are going to just have a lot of fun in Denver. Our weekend will consist of spa, party and art. There's a Degas exhibit in Golden we'll just have to go to.
So today, a little tired. I guess the body just wants some time to store energy before all the excitement. But, what a wonderful event to look forward to. We're blessed with the opportunity to just be sisters again.
