For the past couple of days, the sun has come out, and today it is warm enough for me to go outside and sit on the porch with a light cover over my legs. I understand just how a turtle feels when crawling out of their winter burrow, or pretty close.
It has taken me quite a while to get my head through all the thoughts and worries it was packed with. Most of the thoughts and worries were about things I simply couldn’t do anything about. They were completely out of my realm to affect. So, after gathering up all the energy I had, I began working on the things I could affect. Since I was finally doing something, anything productive, the dark thoughts and worries I had no control over slowly began to evaporate, at the very least they went onto some back burner in my brain. Boy, did that free up a lot of room in there!
Plus, out of eight puppies, three have survived and they aren’t anywhere I’ve decided. The Husband worked too hard to save them for me to give them away. And, I have to admit, I have become very attached to the little girl who survived. We are calling her ‘Snips’. I think she is becoming attached to me as well.
In other news, life rolls on.
Have a good one out there.
