Morning Meanderings…. I Am Listening


Good morning.

Thursday already.  I feel like this week has been a cluster of activity that fits in so many different areas of my life that I feel like it is a box of puzzle pieces that have been dumped on the table to sort, turn, and try to find their place.


As I mentioned a couple of days ago, my good friend Connie is in the hospital for what looks to be the last time. I have been spending time with her usually twice a day morning and evening.  Between that I am working on my house projects, company, commitments, and two three events coming up fast – the Color Run, the Camp Bike Ride and Wine and Words shortly after.  I definitely feel whelmed all the while with my own grief just bubbling below the surface.

I have been too tired to read lately although I do try.  The same book has followed me from the bed stand to the living room several times throughout each day but I never get to opening it.  I have been listening to audio while working in the yard, mowing the lawn, and writing addresses on cards I need to mail.

I am anxious for life to slow down again.

  1. I know what you mean…activity is good but sometimes I just need to sit and think. I stare at the pond…I listen to the birds…I just don’t move!

  2. I know how hard this is, just take it easy if you can. I have been pretty diwn too…haven’t picked up a book in over a week. Blessings

  3. Sheila, I am sorry to hear about your friend Connie. It is so sad. I hope you will have some time to read and relax this weekend.

  4. You are still in my thoughts, Sheila. I’m wishing the best for you. I know you are probably not even able to contemplate this just now, but please consider publishing your morning meanderings at a time when you can look back at this horrible, tough year(s) from a little distance. I have a feeling those morning meanderings could heal people struggling with loss and grief. I am able to relate to so much that you are sharing.

  5. Keeping busy definitely helps, but if you are too busy and become fatigued it is counterproductive. Keep busy but at a less hurried pace. Find a happy medium. Hugs, love, and prayers to you every day.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
