Five on Friday

Hi everyone.

I hope this post finds you well. We have been busy here. Last weekend we visited some friends and hung out all weekend. The air was crisp as we enter fall, we sat knitting while the kids ran and played. We ate good food, laughed and enjoyed each others company. I am saddened that my best friend moved but we are keeping our relationship strong by long phone calls and long weekend visits.

 During our visit we went to the Riverfront Museum.
 Two buddies reuniting.
 A big stick bug discovered by the kiddos.
Eating salmon and trying to maintain better habits.
A new sock for my boy. He picked out this bright skein while visiting friends.

After many emotional months and a journey into my own past, I have realized I am moving in the right direction. Healing takes a while for any wound but realizing there is a wound is the first step. I feel like I have been carrying bagage from my past. Addressing the emotions and feelings at the time was not possible due to my age, knowledge and lack of experiences. As I raise my child these issues and memories are surfacing. However, the emotions are different. I realize my past is just that, a past. I will address the emotion, let it flow and move forward. I will not let it overwhelm me or take control of my future. 



  1. Glad to hear you are moving in the right direction. Sounds like you had a lovely visit with your friend. It's always good to reunite.

    Have a great weekend

  2. It must have been wonderful to catch up with your friend. I am thrilled that your healing process has begun. Take care.

  3. It's good to spend time with friends and the two boys look so happy to be together.

  4. Hi Desiree, I've hopped over via Five On Friday. Knitting with a friend is a wonderful way to spend time, I think! It's easy to become overwhelmed by emotions, especially when unhappy memories surface and take us by surprise, but you are absolutely right in that the first step is to recognise what's happening. Be good to yourself, take care. x
