Personal Musings

I think I'm in a bit of a slump...

This doesn't happen often to me, so it has taken me a bit by surprise. Perhaps it's the stress of the retail seasonal prep...arthritic hands and knees...missing my good friend. I had wonderful staff help this year and everyone gave their all to lesson my work load. I could never have done it without them.

I can so hear the words of my darling mother, "I've got the blah's"...that's how she would refer to this feeling and I've definitely let the overwhelm of catching up and carrying on get the best of me!

On top of all this, my house is downright dreary! After my tag sale (a huge success), my walls are empty, there are no rugs, 2 mismatched chairs have been pulled into the family room for Fred and myself, windows are bare...you get the picture. It echos! Not exactly a cozy retreat to come home to. What was I thinking selling my comforts this time of year?! Oh . Dear.

No pictures tonight. I wanted to share with you the thoughts of a dear friend who has lent a listening ear. I found it so profound and so touching . I want to think about her words and give up the "blahs".

"You are in an empty house and shortly, Mary and Joseph will be looking for a place for a baby to be born."

How tenderly her words touched my shriveled heart. I am planning on preparing my home for the coming Season. Thank you, dear friend.
