It seems i post when things are going well for me...as you can see I rarely post here anymore...Things have changed. Lots of different things..SOme good some not so good..
I will do it easy and make a list of what it is that is happening around my little world. This is not the easiest thing for me to share..but here goes.

1. I am newly divorced.
2. That was hard to say.
3. I opened a flower shop.
4. I love it.
5. I do not live at my farm house anymore..
6. I still get to go and cut my flowers and bring them to my shop.
7. I am still doing pottery, just not as much as before.
8. My kids are doing great, and the diabetes is still a challenge since they are now growing and in high school and middle school..hormones make our lives wacky and  the emotions  effects their insulin levels. I am proud of them and how they handle it. Like it is no big deal.
9. It has been two years since they were diagnosed with type one and I am finally accepting the disease and not feeling overwhelmed, resentful and angry..
10. i live in a small house that is easy to clean :)
11. I have great people who have come into my life since i opened the shop. I feel more alive than I have in years..
12. I work , work. work!
13. But i dont let it control me like i did with my old flower shops.
14. Still doing the photography...getting busy with some shoots this Fall.
15. That is all so  far. I am not sure I will keep this blog or move it over to my flower shop site. I am still thinking about it.
16. I count my blessings everyday..i am grateful...
17.That is all....Hope all is well in your little world!

Julie, it's been a long time since I visited. Seems like we have both had lots of changes. :) I wish you tons of success and happiness in your flower shop! And I'm glad to hear the diabetes is manageable. Thank you for sharing your changes. I'm recently divorced, too, and finding my way. So good to see you so happy!

"i feel more alive than i have in years" good for you! sometimes change can be a good thing, although difficult to get thru. i've been thinking of you -- i've been there and lived to say it was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Julie....thank you for sharing part of your story. Sometimes, it seems, it is a little easier to breathe when we just say it....whatever it is. And we each have that "something" that we go through, that makes life a little more difficult...but because we serve a big, real God...we are not alone and we make it through! I am saying a prayer for you tonight, my friend. Hugs! :)


farmerjulie said...

Julie, I wish you all the best...your flowers and potery are gorgeous, and I've enjoyed visiting your site very much. I too went through a divorce (after 23yrs of marriage) back in my mid 40's and it wasn't pretty. Anyway, it does get better and life goes on...one step at a time. I'm glad you have your flower shop, you are very talented lady. Best of everything to you. Yvonne

I wondered where you've been. Thank you for introducing me to your world and the container of sharing a piece of ourselves. I will miss you if you go...but I also know that healing takes place in a variety of forms...and sometimes leaving is one of them.

With deep gratitude to have been graced with your presence.
