One of those days……………….

Hello and Happy Sunday.

Well I wish I could say I had a happy Sunday.  Sophie and I went for our morning walk and all was well.  We arrived back home 30 minutes later. One minute I’m cleaning the house and was happy – then the next minute I was a puddle of tears.  WOW……didn’t see that coming.  Today was a beautiful day and it was one of those days where Jerry and I would be hanging out on the patio all day.  I would be cooking something good on my smoker and Jerry would be whipping up his legendary margaritas.

My Sophie was so cute trying to “fix Mom” today.  After 15 minutes of licking my face clean she gave up and went outside to play with her toys on the patio.  I sat on the couch and thought about what to do next.  I decided to go and talk to Jerry.  We arrived shortly after noontime. Sophie sat underneath the bench where I was sitting and went to sleep.  I started talking to Jerry.  It’s funny how I can hear his voice so clearly.  I started telling him all about the emotional roller coaster I was on today and how I was being a big cry baby.  After our hour visit with Jerry I said, “I’m going home now babe – I’ll be back – I miss you so much.” Before I left, I prayed for more strength and GOD’s guidance. We left and I sat in my car and cried.  I called my son-in-law John to let him know I wasn’t going to stop by because I didn’t want my granddaughters to see me in the shape I was in today.  John’s kind words were so comforting.  I am so thankful for family on days like today.  I pray tomorrow will be a better day ……..

    Hi Josie, I’m sorry to hear you were having one of those days. We had a bit of that at FGS as well. We found out that Jenny is moving to Colorado to take a call as a teacher. I don’t want to add to any of “those days,” but I figured you would like to know….in case Jenny hadn’t already told you. I hope you’re having a better day today. Jon

      oh no – I didn’t know Jenny was moving. Too bad for FGS that she is leaving. When you get a spare minute please give me a call. I have a music equipment question for you. Thanks Jon
      P.S. Yes I’m having a better day today – thanks!

    I know you are going to have days like that. You just need to do exactly what you did. You are allowed to be sad. Its completely expected and acceptable. You are so strong though. I know that you will find the strength have more good days than bad. Sending you all my love. Courtney Date: Mon, 21 Jul 2014 05:31:36 +0000 To:
