I am just popping in quick to say hello, and thank you for so many well wishes, and e-mails. This blog has really been a blessing to let out my creative energy, and it has been to my surprise I have met so many great women who share a passion for art, life, family, and also share with me a little part of them. So thank you!!
OK, to be honest, I am a wreck. I feel like I did when I gave birth. You know that tired worried, cannot sleep you are so exhausted kind of tired. Well, that is what I feel like. I have had some good cries, some anger, some jealousy over other parents who don`t have to deal with this diabetes stuff. I am told that these feeling are all very normal. I am trying to deal with them now so they don`t pop there ugly little head later in my life. The kids are handling this amazingly well. Way better than me. Greer is the same happy , funny child, and Ben is the same easy-go-lucky, a little moody with becoming a teenager, but all in all, this has not changed them at all. I think in fact it has made them stronger. So, I will be OK. Just having a hard time, and that's OK too. Life is not a big old tea party all the time. I wish it was, but it`s not.
So whats a gal to do? Pick some bouquets of course. And share some pictures of them with you! I was thinking in the yard today..You know how when a flower dries up, and the pod has left its seeds behind? I always like to collect the seeds after they bloom. It is like a challenge for me, to see if I can get the seeds to germinate, and create a plant from one of my plants. I never knew how easy it was until I moved to Idaho and could grow so many things. I love to see the flowers grow, and it is nice to know that I helped them along the way. This may sound corny, but I will write it anyway: If you collect some seeds from a plant, you will be surprised to see how many seeds just one flower will produce . Literally hundreds. So here is the corny part. I believe that this is Gods way of showing me or you, that each one of those tiny seeds are second chances, to start all over again to make something beautiful out of your life. And if he does this for a flower, think of what he would do for me, or you? OK ,that's all the God talk. But I tell ya, I feel a little more connected to my higher power when I am out in the garden, or woods, or the beach.
So on that note..Off to bed, and fill ya in with other stuff real soon!
