Thank you for your kind remarks about my vague post. You may or may not have noticed that my moods tend to highs and lows with very little time spent in between. For an optimist, I often go to the worst case scenario pretty darn fast. I have had a tough week (or two) and really was at my lowest when I wrote my last post this morning. Let's just leave it as a "marriage is tough, and second marriages are complicated, especially around the holidays" issue and assume the best. Part of the problem is I'm always surprised when things aren't perfect, then I get mad at myself for still having to re-learn this lesson over and over and over again. And I think that's about all I can say about it.
I am looking forward to this year, the year in which I turn fifty (good god, when did that happen?), and trying to remember that it's okay I don't have it all figured out.
I am grateful for the many wonderful reminders and ideas that I find in this wonderful world of blogging, and I hope to incorporate a few of them.
I wish for good health and much love for everyone in my family and in yours.
