Every morning is a new beginning.
After essentially crying myself to sleep last night, I had a very restful sleep filled with pleasant dreams. Many of them were even quite humorous, although I can't even remember specific details; I just remember waking up through the night and being filled with peace and happiness, and had vague memories that something funny had taken place. My body and mind feel a little worn out this morning, but at the same time more clear than when I went to bed. I think I will let today be peaceful and enjoyable. My body and mind are saying, "don't do too much...relax, but don't be idle...just take things slowly and enjoy your day." I think I will take my own advice and do just that. I bought my family a couple different kinds of Krispy Kreme donuts yesterday at the store, for breakfast this morning (I buy donuts maybe once or twice per year, as a treat). I think I will brew a big pot of coffee and enjoy a donut. That will be a nice way to start off my day. Then I'll just play the rest by ear.
PS. I heard back from my other friend who lost her dad a few days ago. (I didn't mention her in my post from last night. She was actually raised by her grandparents and called them both "Mom and Dad.") Her mom passed away a few years ago and her dad passed away a few days ago. I sent her a message last night offering my condolences, and also offering to watch the kids so she and her husband could go out. She was overwhelmingly receptive to this idea and very appreciative of my offer. That made me feel so good...it reminded me that I still do have some friends out there and that I may not be such a blah person for someone to have in their life after all. Again, waking up this morning with some peace of mind sure does feel nice.
