THAT’S IT FOR THE DAY

pizza

Its a grand world with Internet and Computers and Phones. So much can happen in a  day without even leaving home. I took my day off. Only thing I went out for was to get wood fired pizza and home made icecream. I have seen photographs of my daughter’s house as it is being built. The hardwood floors are done now.

I have spoken with my oldest friend who appears to be in the process of breaking up from her partner of 15 years.

I know my 11 year old has gone camping  with her mother and family.

I have asked the lad next door to start my car with jumper leads and accidentally called him darling which he really is not – but – he is one of “US”.

I took an afternoon nap outside on the day bed. That’s a first for me here.

And I continue to feel a strength which shattered the day Iz died and then was smashed completely to smithereens with the coma. It came the day my Relative launched the tirade. I feel as I have done at such times as early recovery. Strong and sure and secure in myself.

Who would have expected that to happen as  a result of something which could have crushed me even further?

I feel more Lynne than I have for a very long time.

THE WORM HAS TURNED.

That’s it for the Day.

DAY OFF

Guess it sounds like all my life is a day off – but that is not quite so for an obsessive like me. I live quite a driven life in an almost invisible way. Not today. Today, I am having a day off anything that feels URGENT or NECESSARY.

Not even going out into the sunshine or down to the Lagoon. Not even going to the Meeting or the Shops. I am having a DAY OFF.

Meditation For The Day

I will have faith, no matter what may befall me. I will be
patient, even in the midst of troubles. I will not fear
the strain of life, because I believe that God knows just
what I can bear. I will look to the future with confidence.
I know that God will not ask me to bear anything that
could overcome me or destroy me.
