This was our view yesterday afternoon when the fog started to roll in. It was amazing.
Have a great weekend friends
White picket fence beneath the snow
I’ve searched for you high and low
Each year that passed nowhere to be found
No crunch of footsteps on frozen ground
Beyond my reach it seemed you were lost
A delusion of hope, an inordinate cost.
Under it all still shining bright
Looking for beauty my heart takes flight.
Here are a few photos of the holidays with our family!
I had to take a picture of this cutie. He had a cold, had just eaten and was all messy but still looked at Grama so sweetly!
I have not been on wordpress as much lately, have not posted recipes or stories. I am trying to keep my blog going and stay in touch with everyone which has been hard. If I have not visited you lately, please excuse my absence. I have worked hard to create this space and do not want to just drop it and so I struggle each day to be as present here as I can. This is something I am proud of and I feel blessed to have so many good and caring friends here!
I have OCD, there I said it. I remember as a child explaining to a new friend all about my rituals. She was confused and asked many questions but after that day our friendship didn’t go any further. I never knew my behavior or ideas were different but learned to keep them to myself.
Years later when living in Saudi I experienced symptoms that were worse and so I researched online and realized I had OCD! I still lived in denial and quite frankly was trying to survive through an emotionally, spiritually, verbally, financially and intimately abusive marriage, so OCD was not my main focus.
Here I am now, age 54, having to face it and to figure out what to do. I was unsure, was it PTSD, Anxiety or OCD. After he visited 18 months ago and it ended badly, things started falling apart. I have seen therapists and taken other little steps but still find I am living in fear and anxiety. I am telling you this because a good blogging friend told me to reach out and express myself.
Once again I thank you for your love, caring and support.
