After the the crappy week I’ve had, I decided to post something lighthearted, I cannot focus on the bad stuff for too long, then I just become depressed and negative, and that would just suck. I know there is a long road ahead of us, on all fronts, not just dealing with grief, but also the relationships in our lives, one particular relationship at the moment. It is hard, and will always be hard, and we will run out of Mondays very soon. Some days I wish that day would be here already, but most days I don’t want to let go. It would just be so final when we finally run out of Mondays, so so final.
However, we should also focus on the good stuff. We have a blessed life with beautiful relationships and a future to look forward to. There is so much we still want to do, as a family and also with my sister and BIL. So there is much to look forward to, it’s not all dreary. The hard part is always to pick oneself up and move forward, but it is doable. And now that spring is in the air, I’m already feeling better about the future. I know there will be some difficult days in the coming weeks, but for now I’m enjoying the warmth.
The boys and I decided to mosaic a bird bath we bought in Clarens last year, Ph bought me some beautiful tiles imported from Spain for my birthday this year, so we had some lovely tiles to work with. And when I say we, I mean the boys, I basically helped them break the tiles but that’s where my involvement stops. They did the design and all the grout work. I’m so proud of them, in a few hours the bird bath was done! We had a blast, Pete was working and we were a bit bored. Always good to have a project up one’s sleeve.
I have such talented boys! Now all I need them to still mosaic is all the flagstones that will be our new path leading up to the front door (Insert evil laugh here!) They should handle that, I’m almost 5% sure!!
