Life's little bumps ....

Life has a way of knocking you down and picking you up again. The downs are bad, you feel like you are never going to get through, but then things change and there is light at the end of the tunnel and it starts to gets bright and brighter and all of a sudden you feel better, feel like you can go on and cope. We have had our fair share of these relentless downs over the last couple of years, it has sapped me of energy and the will to do anything, but things have got brighter and better and all of a sudden I feel like I can smile and get on with life again. We have an address for the first time in a long, long time, a tiny little space which is home and ours for as long as we like.
 It has taken over a month for me to feel like I belong there and to gather all our stuff together from various storage locations and now I am even feeling like perhaps I can start to do some of my crafts again or just sit and savour the fact that I have a lazy boy chair that I can just sit in and watch TV if I like or not, it is amazing.
I was driving home yesterday and the sun was setting as only an autumn sun can set!  Leaves were blowing around in the wind the sun was shining through what had been a heavy downpour and my classical music was playing and I had an overwhelming feeling of contentment, it brought tears to my eyes because it is a feeling that has been missing for so long.
I even feel like blogging again. 
Even though I have visited you all regularly I have not felt any inspiration to blog, but I think I am back and would like to thank you who have left a comment on a very dormant blog, it made me feel connected to the world, thank you!

Sorry! I deleted my first comment because it didn't make much sense...Let me start again.

I am VERY glad to hear that things are better for you. It looks like Fortune is tugging her wheel up, up, up from now on for you.

Warmest wishes,

Welcome back Cheryl. I am so happy to hear you are feeling a little better - life certainly does have it's ups and downs.
We moved here almost fourteen years ago and as I was thinking tonight about my Sale and needing people to help I realized I still have only one good friend here and it made more lonely than I could believe. Even though I do love Salmon Arm, it isn't home and I am still a "stranger" here.
I hope you continue to post a bit here and there as you see fit - I have missed you!

Oh I know what you mean, dear. Sometimes in the stillness of the morning, I gather my thoughts and get an overwhelming feeling of blessings. I'm so glad things are going well for you right now.
Much love,
