Joyful

Dawn commented on my previous post that i sound much happier, and yes i am! It had not really filtered into my head just how good life is. The illnesses, long recovery, a winter that was beginning to feel never ending and i think i might have been teettering on the edge of depression. Not entirely sure cos i have never been properly depressed. And then i started going out, meeting new people, rather than sitting on the sofa in a 'can' t be arsed' mood, snappy with the kids, just not wanting to do anything and feeling pretty blah. The busyiness has been tiring but my gawd wonderful too. This morning for the 1st time in forever, i woke us feeling refreshed and ready to meet the day - at twenty to seven! And what a day. Simple pleasures, enjoying the warmth of spring sun in the garden, having most of the toys out in the garden, crocheting with a friend, eating healthy, fresh food, going out this evening. . . Yes life is good, not easy as such but pleasureable.

Good to hear that life is good. I have just written the very same words myself! Hopefully things will continue to improve and you can enjoy yourselves in the (hopefully) better weather. xx

So pleased things are going well Jacqui, and you do sound in a good place right now. Well done for getting up and making the effort - that can often be the hardest part. Long may it continue!
