Hello friends, I hope all is wonderful with you. Again I thank you all for your amazing support during my latest happenings. For those who have commented or emailed and haven't heard from me, please forgive me...my time is literally all about tending to my family, working, and when ever time allows trying to keep my etsy shop afloat to help with lost income. Please know, I treasure every single comment and email more than you know.
As the new month begins, I continue to take each minute, each day as it comes...some moments have been promising while others causing some worry...and I'm finding myself feeling a bit lost in some ways. Is it possible to feel "lost and found" all at once, I wonder? Right now I feel lost in my "role" as a wife and partner while my husband continues to slowly recover....as if there's a disconnect between us. I read somewhere it is normal...but difficult to live through while it's happening.
There's another part of me that feels a new woman emerging...one who's learning more about what she is capable of accomplishing and especially how deep ones love can truly be when tested with lifes biggest trials. And I'm finding that even during these most trying times there are lessons to be learned and even to appreciate....and there are plenty of those happening along the way.
I've also discovered that seeking help from others has opened new doors...like the discovery of this book which is helping me tremendously....and finding the organization NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) where the kindest souls are always there to offer support, information, and programs.
Through it all, I've also found unexpected smidges of time to nurture my creative side.....a welcomed therapy for me. And as you can see from the photos in this post....I have a little obsession for bird nests right now...perhaps a way for me to hold onto to the closeness of a little family.
And most importantly, I'm still turning to my faith and praying HARD for my husband's recovery.
So friends, lost and found would describe how I'm feeling right now....let's hope the next time we visit I will have more to share on finding our way back and less about feeling lost. I thank you for lending an ear dear ones....I'll be back soon. In the meantime, kiss the ones you love.
