I originally was going to try to come up with something thought-provoking or interesting, but since it had been so long since my last post, I thought I would stop delaying myself and just write.
There's not much new to say -- I am still finding myself struggling to get back the spark. It keeps going in fits and spurts.
I was going well for bit, but then a friend very unexpected lost her husband to a heart attack. It was very sad -- they were so full of life and love together. And he was only 55 -- too young. So I went to my hometown for the visitation to support my friend.
The evening before I left, my son was stung twice in the ankle. 12 hours later, his foot and ankle were very swollen, red, and warm to the touch. Went to the doctor's office, got prescriptions, and debated about going. My husband insisted that all would be well and I should go, so I left him copious notes and was on my way.
Needless to say, there was no planning. The whole weekend was on the fly. When I came back, I saw that nearly all of my efforts from the past month had come undone. Well, shoot...
But, I still have the power to make a different choice. I need to keep that at the forefront of my mind. My future success depends on the choices I make today.
Now, to make that my mantra and really act on it.
