You are looking at a picture of my new "office". We are still without phone or internet service. Sometimes I want to ring my husbands neck, but then I try and remember he is only doing what he thinks is best. And yes we are suppose to get phone service this week. I had another good walk with my friend. We have some of the best conversations and it always helps me to see things a little clearer at least for a little while. Today our subject was how to help someone who seems to be in a miserable place? I've learned that no one can "fix" someone else, you can only take care of yourself. I am hoping in that taking care of my self- that the better I feel the easier it will be for me to handle the difficult times and make things easier for those around me. If I am stronger, I can be there for those I love and be less effected by their moods and attitudes. It is so easy to dwell on the negative and forget what your life is full of. If I can keep my attitude positive maybe I can pass that on to those I love through osmosis.
