The golden girl - a bridesmaid from my last wedding. She is so pretty and I love her expression.

Last year, something happened in my life that made me very sad. For quite a long time - until very recently - I felt as if I couldn't get beyond it, couldn't move on or let the past be the past. I kept going over events in my mind, wondering if there was any way things could be different. Wondering if decisions I'd made were the right ones for all concerned.

And then quite suddenly I felt ok again. It's a relief. Oh, I'm not saying there isn't still sadness and regret somewhere deep inside me. But I have come through it. I'm very grateful to family and friends who have helped me along the way. I have some happy memories and love is never wasted; even if it doesn't last for ever.

I got some antibiotic cream for my eye yesterday; only one application and the thing has already SHRUNK!!

I'm really tired today; I slept so badly last night and missed Phil a lot!

This post made me happy for you; first the bridesmaid is so lovely and gives such a hopeful feeling--youth and new beginnings. Second, I'm very glad you've found a sense of release from your lingering sadness, and third I'm glad you're finally getting some relief from your eyelid whatchamacallit. Sounds like things are looking up (no pun intended). When Phil gets home that will just be the icing on the cake.

CG, so happy to hear you have come through your difficult time. Life's blows are sometimes softened by time and the love of family and friends. It sounds like you have a wonderful support system.
Beautiful bridesmaid photo and a sweet expression.
Harrah for the new meds. So glad to know the eye is better and that Phil will be home soon.
