Soldiering on...

I both love this photo and find it heartbreaking at the same time.  In the hospital on Christmas day, trying to figure out what is going on but being a trooper all the same.  The whole week she had this grave and considering look on her face.  

I've got the mid winter blues, for some reason this season just drains me and I find myself going through the motions.  A lot of it is missing this little sprite but it's more than that.  I have people to support me, love me and listen to me but I find that it's the strong shoulder to cry on that seems to elude me.

Almost everyone I love is far away from me in some way and even though I feel blessed to have their love in my life it sometimes feels overwhelming to be without them.

I've learned that this just happens in January and on into March when the joy of things peeking through the dirt overrides the blues.  I keep busier than usual and allow myself to sit with a cup of tea, a warm blanket and a good book.  Maybe I'm just recharging my batteries.

And, I'm still making beautiful things.  Is that why we have Valentine's Day?  Gifts, chocolate, love, what's not to like?

So, take the one "who just might love you the most" and hug them tight, even in your dreams and remember to let them know you love them the most too.

  1. HMMM, Vday is becoming another Bah Humbug day here. I was getting too accustomed to the sunny weather and high hopes.
    Such a beautiful little lady and your art pieces as well.
