I felt as though I spent most of the week holding my breath and waiting for the other shoe to drop. A tear or two may have fallen.
How was your week?
At the farm stand this week.
Farmhouse renovation update.
Sheetrock arrived very early Monday morning. A carefully orchestrated event of man and machine.
Drywall installers were here all week. While I’m most happy to have this progress taking place at long last, having contractors in my space all week, seemed very invasive and trying.
Perhaps, I’m not feeling my most patient these days.
Recent days have been so gut-wrenching and heartbreaking. I found myself searching for things to be grateful for. I’m sure there are plenty, but somehow when your world is hurting so badly, they seem hidden. Trying to make sense of the senseless actions and lost lives in our community has been overwhelming. There are moments of anger, frustration, sadness, and the many feelings that can’t even be put into words.
I think of all the times in the past I saw some unpleasant news on TV my action was to turn it off and walk away. It is a lot harder to do that when your neighborhood is the center of all of the controversy. There has been no escape from the ugly reality everywhere you go, people are wearing their emotions on their sleeves and talking, talking, talking about it.
Compounding our sadness for our community is that we lost two members of our family this week.
Plain and simple and not so polished, this week has sucked.
Especially at this time, I feel the need to remember and celebrate good and positive. This is where all of you come in. I’m so grateful that I’ve met some wonderful and kind people through blogging. Our worlds most likely never would have crossed, if it wasn’t for this internet. We share some kind of interest in writing and reading, gardening, farming or creating in some way. I’m so appreciative when you guys take the time out to share your thoughts, truly it makes blogging meaningful. I’m sorry I didn’t answer each of your comments this week, I found words hard to come by.
Thank you for sharing the journey to raise little Lucky, and his subsequent release back into the wild. Also, your caring words for our hurt community mean a lot. Please keep thinking of us and our beautiful country, this ugly hatred isn’t going away and seems to be spreading. I’m sending you all a big hug and thank you for your support.
A very special thank you to my friend, Debra, for her beautiful soul, her kind words, and generous spirit and sharing her incredible talent by putting our feathered family on canvas. She brought light into my dark world this week. I hope you will stop by and say hello to her – she is amazingly talented and she deserves an extra hug for just being her.
Well, that’s all for today. Thanks for being here.
