I must be moving back into my normal mode of self as I seem to want to write and write and write.
I have had the most amazing few days!.... I have had the wonderful opportunity to go back in time and without the use of drugs, alcohol or technology. I just spent a couple of days with a very old friend and it was so relaxing. Old friends are great beause they know who you are at your core, and you don't have to put on any kind of pretense. Also, there are no guards up....its a 'this is me' attitude and that means tons of laughter and fun.
Not only was I brought back to a time when we were young, but an even more recent time when I had young people all around. I forgot how much fun a room full of teenagers can be.....as well as very exhausting. Even trying to go to sleep was a new experience as age prevented me from staying up as late, and yet that didn't seem to deter the noise and laughter from the young ones. Oh to be so oblivious to anything and everyone around us....to be so self absorbed and not have to apologize for it.
The whole weekend was what I desperately needed. It put me back into the reality that life is a place where things happen, good and bad. It is not static or boring....if it is it ain't life people!!!!!
So Saturday and Sunday I am in the midst of family life with the crazyness of teenagers.....singing, yelling, knitting, watching t.v., playing instruments....and eating eating eating.....my goodness they like to eat. Too bad they don't have the same energy for cleaning up!!!!! Oh well......and then on Monday....back to an adult world. At least I was eased into....coffee with some new people.
Nothing excites me more than meeting new people with new stories. Also, on an aside I actually enjoyed a Starbucks coffee.....don't know if it was the coffee or the company but it was a great way to end the weekend and begin the week.
Life is good right now.........but one never knows what's might be around the corner...so I will just enjoy the moment!!!!
