I spent today taking control. Isn’t that what you do after you feel threatened by anyone or anything. I made a to-do list, went after those items and decided that the whole thing was over and I was on my way to forgetting it. I did, however, replace some outdoor lights and caught myself jumping at noises. This too shall pass.
A night out with friends from afar was wonderful, complete with sitting in the window of the tiny restaurant, catching up, good wine and leisurely conversation. We were joined by another dear and golden friend. We tried to move our party to the coffee shop, but alas, it was closed, so we made our way to our house. It was nice to hang out here, nice to fill the place with laughter and good friends. To be surrounded by those that you’ve known for so very long, that know you well and are like minded. . . it’s a gift, a real gift. Even the cats agreed.
