So this week has been a whirlwind of emotions. I feel completely off kilter and for a type A control freak like me it has been rough. I hate to feel unbalanced. Life will do that to you every so often, so I just have to go with it. My Aunt has gotten really sick and is now in hospice care so I have been spending what time I can at the hospital to be with family. When sitting down to write this post I struggled what to write about, how can I look back at this week and find the good in it? However there has been good among the bad. Sometimes you just have to sit and think about it, but it was there helping you get through it. These are my things…
One. Seamus. What can I say about my dog I haven’t already said! My Dad was joking (or maybe not joking) that Seamus is the devil. He barks at strangers in fear but he has come a long way and accepts people after learning they won’t hurt him. This week he was a huge support for me. When I got home and cried on the couch, Seamus put his paw on my lap and actually licked a tear off my face. He has made sure he is by my side and at least part of him is touching me offering comfort. For him I am grateful!
Two. Music has kept me sane when I want to block out the world. My tastes are very varied, but I am loving the new Halestorm album. I also listed to Citizen Cope and Ray LaMontagne.
Three. Cauliflower Mac and Cheese..say whay? Even though this recipe is fairly clean I look forward to recreating it with a few more modifications so stay tuned.
Four. This week has reminded me how short life can be and to grab each moment and live it to the fullest. Tell those you love just how much they mean to you daily.
Five. It is Friday. That is all I got, my brain can’t handle anymore without coffee!! Have a great weekend everyone. Hug your loved ones a little tighter today and everyday!
