Hello everyone, I have returned safe and sound. I have to admit the last few weeks have been somewhat of a blur to me. Last night when I returned home about ten in the evening, my husband, home, and my pets , it was the best feeling in the world to get back to my home. I had great visits with both of my sisters, both of them making sure that I did not overdo it and they both made me take my afternoon naps, They also made sure that I was careful when out walking. They both thought that I was tired and truthfully I found it very tiring, My younger sister is getting married next fall and she is busy planning, so it was fun and really quite exciting to see her fall in love at fourty. She was married once before, long before she even knew who she was, so for her to find that true love now , she is especially grateful. ! As for doing a lot, I have to say I did not but was jusst glad to spend some time with the people I love. There were some major disappointments upon returning to the farm where we grew up. It was the first time we had returned since our father had passed away. Unfortunately we all seem to have different standards of what is right and wrong. We have been very patient and have always dealt witth some hardships, that are not important now, but nothing had changed, we seem to have become further apart than ever. My sisters and I value honesty more than anything else! That is all I can say on this issue as it is all quite tender now and close to the surface. This is what I have learned. I have no control over other peoples lies and deciepts, But I do have the choice of how I choose to react to such! So even though some days were not as pleasant as I would have liked I still made a choice to try and have my very best days. My great joy was being out of the city for awhile, playing with my Dads dog, seeing the cattle and the calves and a wonderful visit with my Aunt and Uncle, my Uncle was my deads best friend and we were treated with extreme kindness, caring and affection. He grew pumpkins and must have picked a hundred, He was creating scenes for all his grandchildren coming home. I could not but think how delighted they will be when they all arrive to see them. Some were huge, may be 50 lbs. It was his very first year at trying to grow different varieties. Put all together it was actually quite beautiful. We came back early and like I said I am so glad to be home, so glad to be able to get back into my routine, so glad to be in a place that is not toxic for me at all...I hope you are all well and I will be by to visit and see what you have all been up to! I think after a few more hours of sleep, I should wake and be ready to have My best day yet. I hope you all get to spend time with those you love and hold dearest to you. life is too short to focus on anything that does not bring you joy...at least that is my moto at 549 am. I could not sleep as I was overtired. My sister is snoring up a storm and my husband is having a very peaceful sleep. He told me he had never missed me as much as he did this time. I just gave him a big hug and I knew ALL was OK again! .....Sorry for such a long post, but I guess I had some things to say. All will be very well again, one good sleep is all I need. ! Have a great day!
