Okay, this picture has NOTHING to do with the blog post, but that Blog Enhancement Tool pulled it as a related image because I used the word hush. So, I'm including it for the delight of all of the male viewers. (only fair since I used that wildly hot guy with the great arms a few posts ago!) May the sight of their voluptuous (silicone filled, fake as can be) chests make your day. Happy Friday! xoxo Image via WikipediaI should really be in bed. It's almost 2am and I know that I'll get lectures tomorrow from all of you well meaning people about staying up so late...or early as the case may be.
But it's my quiet time.
Thursday was one of those days that seemed to last fooooooorever. It was a great day, but it was just long. (Yes, I realize that the fact that I'm still awake at 2am is just prolonging it. Hush.)
I'm not sure what I want to say....other than to sit quietly in this place that is my blog and breathe. Clean, sweet, deep breaths of air as my family rests quietly and the dog snores at my feet. Breaths that help to restore me. Help to ground me. Help to heal me. Help to soothe me.
When I lose my way, I find it difficult to get back on track and find myself again. My walls stay up, my guard is on full alert and I feel like I curl up into a prickly hedgehog to protect myself. It's like living in limbo.
But tonight, as I sit here breathing, the walls are down, the guard is back to light duty and I feel more like the bear at the Philadelphia Zoo who was simply laying on his back, front paws raised to the heavens as he scratched his back contentedly. I thank God for the peace that Thursday brought. It was much needed.
And now...at 1:59 AM, I'm off to snuggle with Little Miss who is asleep in the middle of our bed after having a bad dream. Go easy in your admonishments please....I needed this.....even if I will need a caffeine IV all day.
Much love to you all! xoxoxoxo
