Something happened during the week and as much as I consider myself a functional human being and a survivor, sometimes an event occurs that lays me low. I haven’t been affected by something quite like this for a long time, so it took me a bit by surprise.
I’ve seen other bloggers post that they need some time off, but I never imagined I would need to do that. Writing is my release, after all. But this time, the only thing I wanted to write had to do with the “event” and I’m not sure writing about it would have done my blog any services. Besides, it’s personal and I believe some things need to stay that way.
I’m still not completely back, but I believe I’m in a better place today than I was a few days ago.
I’m finding comfort this morning in drinking some pretty amazing coffee, seeing my family busy starting their Saturday and despite the shadow over my heart, the sun is shining brightly.
Isn’t it strange how drinking coffee can be such a social event? My fiance can no longer drink coffee and I have to say, it isn’t quite the same enjoying a cup without him. I also find it strange that despite logic, we look to a drink of coffee or alcohol to make everything better. Even knowing it doesn’t, I still find myself turning to it sometimes.
But in the last two days it wasn’t coffee or alcohol that helped me get through the days. It was the people closest to me and for that, I’m extremely grateful. Thank you for being there. Thank you for listening and most of all, thanks for the love.
Happy Saturday everyone!
