A peacefulness came over me
Felt a lightness in my heart
Excitement for the day
For the possibilities
Is this happiness?!
It is the way I used to feel before . . . .
A grayness breaks through the light
What is this? Am I feeling? Am I thinking?
All is well in my world EXCEPT . . . .
Sophie. Now it’s her illness that brings in the gray cloud
I need to let go of worrying about what will be when she is no longer here
I need to embrace the joy of this moment
The present is a gift
Why is it so difficult? Why do I give my power away, my energy into negative thinking?
I know there will be another sunrise
I know there will be another sunset
Each moment unique onto itself
Nothing is ever the same
Change is inevitable
It’s how we embrace the change that matters
Bringing joy into each moment
Weathering the storms that inevitably will arise
This is part of life
I am thankful for all my blessings
I am thankful for this moment in time where I sit on my couch with Sophie by my side
My journal on my lap
My pen in my hand
The cool morning breeze flowing through the open window
The light filling up the room
The yellow walls are bright and cheery
All blessings, capturing this moment in time
Bottling this moment up, the feeling
