Found this quote on Photobucket today and felt it was an appropriate depiction of my life lately. While February is generally a favored month in our house, due to my Rachel's birthday and Valentine's Day, this year, February was a month full of trials and tribulations.
Anyone that is a regular reader of mine knows that I never talk about my husband. We will be married 27 years this June, but have been separated for the past four years, yet still very connected emotionally. The dear man I married many years ago, that has often been a rosey thorn in my side, has been very sick this past month and it just breaks my heart. I'm sure in time he will be fine, but as many of you know, it's the time from here to there that's the hard part.
I am good about stealing moments for myself, learned how to do that during my heavy mothering years. I'm involved in so many things right now - my regular ATC Club, current cards pictured, an Altered Book Club, Alice Tag Swap, A Life Made by Hand online journal class, Art Journal Love Letters online class and I just joined a May Day tussie mussie swap. Not overextending myself too much, right? I guess when we feel overwhelmed with the guises of life, we have to grab and hold onto whatever we can to guide us through.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Will try to visit and comment here and there. I certainly need a blogland fix!
