full circle


I'm back. Did you miss me?


Anyone?


Hello? Hello?


Yeah, that's what I thought. Oh, well. I'll bet my mom missed me.


Mom?


Hello? Hello?


Man. This is a tough audience. I'll let you in on a little secret, though.


It's a really good thing I had no computer this week. Sometimes things truly do happen for a reason, and this whole virus thing is a perfect example of that. We've had a very interesting seven days around here, and if there has been a single emotion left unturned, I can't think of what it would be. I started out last Sunday in a white hot fury, the likes of which I have never before experienced, and ended on Thursday with a sense of peace that is still wrapped snugly around me.


Anything I'd have written last week would have been a knee jerk reaction, and I'd probably have had to spend a lot of time repairing the damage. But now I've got a brand new outlook on everything, a brand new perspective that has finally gelled in the last week. It's safe to let me back on the keyboard.


And, boy, do I have a lot to say.

Missed you a lot; didn't leave a comment because I didn't think you could read them. Isn't it weird how things work out for the best so often? Glad you're back and glad you're doing well.

Glad to see you back posting, RC! I have missed your great insights and your humor. Of course we missed you, silly girl!

But of course you were missed. Thank goodness you are back and it sounds like you had quite an odyssey.

my two cents said...

Virus? I still say you were wrapped up in Wimbledon, or perhaps at Wimbledon.

Hanging on your every word, so let's hear it!

Welcome back! Can't wait to hear what you've got to dish out!

Thought of you tonight while at a KS ER. I'm sure I would have been great blog fodder! Oh who am I kidding, I will blog about it even if the nurse or DR doesn't!! Now I must go to bed while pain meds are still working!

Well since I visit in fits and starts, you went and came back and I missed it all! Typical me.

But it is good to read, as I read your posts backwards, that you have a peace wrapped snuggly around you. That's sounds... snug. Hold on to the peace.
