My life is different now, an empty hole in my heart for sure, but I have resolved to have a fresh start, to recapture some of the excitement that I have enjoyed in years past. So far I am managing very well. I started dragging out boxes and boxes of decorations and found myself feeling the excitement and the contentment putting each little piece in place. Music going in the background.... My Dickens village taking center stage in the dining room...
I downsized my artifical tree to one I could carry from storage to house and then place on a table in the sunroom...
I found a pin on Pinterest that I liked. Here's what gave me that inspiration..
I have a tiered silver dish ... I can do that!! Hey, why doesn't mine look like that one above???
Something new so that I am not reminded of the 60 Christmases Elbert and I shared. Keep my mind focused on the here and now... don't think back and you will make it through the holidays, I tell myself.
I take every moment and try to enjoy it. I start my morning with a prayer... Thank you, Lord, for having him 60 years, thank you for a beautiful day and thank you for loving me when I didn't deserve to be loved. Help me live this day as You would have me. Amen
And, I'm doing alright..... so far...... stay tuned for further developments!!
