"It takes courage to participate in life. Today I can applaud myself for trying. I'm doing a terrific job".
I think it is time to take a look at how well I have done. I have managed my life --or God has-- pretty well since James' death-- it will be 9 months on Tuesday. While I have been blindsided by circumstances and emotions, it I have succeeded in some areas--decisions regarding the house, taking care of business, and doing what is necessary to take care of myself-mostly stepping up contact with others and participating in the Fellowship. I need people now more than I have ever have in my life. I just do the best I can.
Blue Bird-- I drew it today! I just made up my mind I was going to do it and I did. I was so pleased with it I took a picture of it with my phone and tried to send it to all my friends, but the phone didn't co-operate, so I can only show it here. I applaud myself for trying.
CWCW: I cleaned the bathroom and of course drew a blue bird. I also went out with a friend to a fundraising Gala. Free dinner and entertainment and we shared some of our hearts with each other. No one asked me to dance, though. One day I will dance-- just hide and watch.
