Thank you for your kind comments on my post yesterday. I wasn't at all sure I should say anything about how I was feeling - I often have this internal struggle about how frank and open my blog should be: I tend to keep a lot of stuff OUT of my daily postings in case it's misunderstood or misinterpreted or just comes over "wrong". In fact, shortly after I'd posted yesterday I went back to remove the post having had second thoughts but some people had already commented so I left it there.
I am a very "up and down" person emotionally - and right now I'm struggling with the "down" feelings. There are a few things that are really worrying me right now but my blog isn't the right place to discuss them. It just helps sometimes to say "I'm sad" as well as at other times wanting to be able to share all the happy times... One of the reasons I started my blog was to try to cope with my often out of control fears and worries. And to a large extent that's happened. I cope better now, thanks to my blog and the support and example of this blogging community.
There are people out there (and you may be one of them!) dealing with huge problems, pressing sadness, ill health...coping with courage and spirit and grace. I'm trying to deal with my own worries as well as you do.
I'm trying to be honest and I'm trying to do the right things. I fail, far too often. I have to keep trying.
I am so grateful for your comments. Thank you. Thank you!
