I read a book that I found at work today. The nature of what I do means I often find books I’ve never seen or not read before.
This one surprised me though. ” My dad died and its all God’s fault” is the story of a young boy’s journey through grief. It’s a heart rending read, it certainly was for me; it bought back some of my own pain. Maybe I needed to find it because I stood alone in that room sobbing, trying to read through my tears. This doesn’t happen nearly as often as it used to now, so the fact that I sobbed my way from page to page kind of told me that there was more pain that I was ready to let go of. Tears I will never have to cry again were let flow today and behind them was a little more peace and understanding.
In other news, two of my friends are getting married tomorrow and part of the celebration will be at the house I worked at today so I was blitzing rooms to have them nice for the wedding party and relations. It was nice to see the mothers of the bridal party chatting away together as they prepared food for the event. I won’t be at the celebration, but I wish them well and will congratulate them when Isee them together another day.
I’m huddled down in a blanket tonight, I want to knit but the only projects I have are a bit complex for my level of tiredness tonight, so maybe not! Oh yes, I did make myself some flapjack tonight, nice and simple. I’ve got to get to grips with this being nice to myself thing. I haven’t done it for ages!
Night peoples, a blanket is great but a bed will be warmer still!
