View From My Window

Sunday, October 3, 2021 — I can feel the stress right now. And I know the reason for it–inability to control what I want to control. Robert’s health, people allowing their pets to run wild in the streets. Every little bit of negativity builds and fights my inner desire to have life the way I want it. Acceptance is a hard nut to crack. Some days it’s just easier. I’m going to close this and go work on the baby quilt. If I get lost in my sewing, I won’t think about the things I don’t want to think about!

Have a wonderful day — stay safe!! Tell those you love that you love them and work on gratitude and acceptance, as that’s what I’ll be doing for most of the day.

About tehachap

Happily married and retired, my hobbies are quilting, reading and anything to do with trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad). My husband and I have truly enjoyed our retirement, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    Yes, a project requiring a lot of concentration is an excellent diversion, that’s for sure.

    Yes, letting go and letting anything else take up the burden. Did you cann anyone in yoour support group about this?
    Thanks to your dear little bunnies, I am having a wonderful day. I even wrote you a thank you note, but it got returned this morning. You no longer live in San Diego. If you could send me a note with your newest email address, I will make sure and save it. I’ll get a second chance at a thank you note too.

    I’m hoping working on the baby quilt brought a smile to you. Also hoping today is a good day for Robert.

      Robert was much better than the other day. I talked to him about it last night and he said he didn’t know what was wrong, but he woke up feeling confused. I messaged his sister-in-law and asked how Robert’s brother and she were doing. I shared Robert’s progressive situation and this morning his brother called and they talked for the better part of an hour. They want to come visit before we move. We haven’t seen them for 7 years, so it’ll be a good visit.
