Back to work today and I was glad to be working from home as I was sad. Every once in a while I’d be overcome with a wave of sadness and tears would flow. At one point I was walking outside and the tears started. I looked down and saw a dragon fly sitting on the step. I love dragon flies and knew it was my aunt offering comfort. I just cried harder.
I’ve come a long way when it comes to grieving. There was a time I would keep everything inside, bottled up. Now, I just let it out. Tears flow, laughter sometimes follows. Just got to go with the flow and honour my feelings and my aunt’s memory. She was very special and meant alot to me…means a lot to me!
I’m late getting my painting done as I was in a funk after work so mowed the lawn. All of it. Two and half hours later…lawn tractor put away, I pulled out my paints and got to work.
Earlier in the day, I had the idea of painting a white fence with flowers against it. This isn’t quite what I had in mind but it’s cute nonetheless.
I had my camera with me while driving the lawn tractor. I had seen a butterfly with unusual markings – I haven’t seen before – and went to get my camera. By the time I got back…it was gone. So, I kept my camera just in case. I got pics of the river, the apples which are almost ready, the clouds and this… God sure is good at this.
