3BT #20

Three beautiful things, as I claw my way out of this funk I've been in lately. Things are kind of rough in my little world right now. Still dealing with the aftermath, I'm afraid. It's hard work and frankly I'm tired. All the more reason to focus on the pieces of good:
  1. The sun. Oh sweet heaven above, the sunshine. Look, I live where it rains. It is grey and cloudy for a good chunk of the year. The dreariness doesn't bother me much, at least not when it stays in the seasons it's supposed to. But lately things have gotten ridiculous. We had 25 days of rain in April. Then another three weeks straight of rain to usher in June. Every day for weeks I woke up to another cold, yucky sky outside my window. But yesterday! Yesterday there was sunshine: bright, warm, summery sunshine! I'm not even kidding, people were nicer. Strangers were smiling and talking to each other again. I am certain a dozen people impetuously proposed marriage.

  2. The french fries at Red Robin. Enough said.

  3. The feeling of a child in your arms who has completely given themselves over to hugging you, eyes squeezed shut, arms around you, their hair nestled against your neck, the weight of their head on the curve of your shoulder.

Remember one of getupgrrls messages was to find the people who have been where you are and reach out. I hope you are able to find the support system you deserve because isolation is (as the kids type) teh suck. Actually maybe they don't type that; I'm old so I don't know. I think of you often.

Mmmm, I know exactly what you mean. We've had serious rain here (unusual) and this weekend was glorious sunshine. Soooo nice to get outside and soak it up while we can. I hope things work out!

sweet potato fries are a cure-all

Sorry to hear that things are still rough; glad to hear that you're able to find some comfort in the good stuff. And now that it's mid-June, there's bound to be more sunshine . . . right?

Took my breath away - oh, my, I miss this! Grown up kids are great, but still, I miss this.

I hope that whatever you have been dealing with is finding resolution.
