Quite the eventful weekend.
First up was 24 hours of Arbonne conversation where I was inspired and challenged. Plus the eight hours round trip which included more encouraging and challenging conversation.
I managed to crack out a few words here and there when I had a chance to work on Out of the Frying Pan.
Also there was time for some reading for the book review that is due before Thanksgiving.
And last night's snuggles on the couch with stinky, adorable grand dogs.
The biggest event was spending time with my mother-in-law who fell and broke her hip, collar bone and elbow on Sunday morning. Calling the ambulance, going to the ER, hearing that everything that hurt was broken, watching her slip into morphine induced sleep…thank you, Lord, for morphine. And realizing that no less than five details falling into perfect place were absolute God sends, because without them, things could have been so much worse.
I am calling the rest of this month… No Room For Negativity November. Because there just isn't. Ain't nobody got time for that.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
