played hookey

Monday, February 18, 2013

today I played hookey from both jobs...i haven't had a personal day off since i got back to work last june from my injury...
I slept in til 7am then left the house and didn't return til 5pm...

my mom passed last year and left a lot of questions and hurt feelings...why wasn't I ever good enough...why was i such a dissappointment? I had to let go of the hurt and anger...I bought some balloons...went to the cemetary and told my mom that I was no longer going to hold onto these feelings against her..after all...I don't know what she went through in her childhood...I could only learn from them and tell my kids how much they mean to me and how much i love them...as I released those balloons...all those negative feelings went with them...boy...do i feel so much better...free!!
I then went to visit my aunt...I hadn't seen her since she was in the rehab facility where i work to have therapy for her knee after surgery...we got so much closer then..both of us healing after my mom, her sister's death...I totally surprised her !!! what a great visit.
I then went to the funeral home to see my trainer...her mom died friday...so nice to see how much it means to someone when you take the time to support them...
When I got home, did a few things...worked out with kettlebells and watched alittle tv...and oh yea...got my tickets for my flight to Georgia in april...then...my son and I go to New Orleans!!!woo hoo!!!
I'm so glad I was able to take today off...it was a beautiful day to let go of hurts..renew relationships and live life...Thank You Jesus for life an good friends and family
