I have taken to going out. Had a pretty rotten time since losing my precious mommy seven years ago but the absolutely overwhelming grief began to lift last July and that, coupled with my discovery of a silly little blue pair of lace-up canvas shoes has really seen things turn around for me.
From going out of the house once every 6 or 7 weeks or so and walking no further than from the door to the car and back again I am now walking several times a week around my beloved Earlswood Lakes and today even ventured into the wood there for the first time!
The absolute hight spot of all this has been .... THIS :
And this is our little feathered friend feeding from hubby's hand (I take a slightly better photo' than he does!!!!)
Walking here is restoring my soul and I really do feel the dark days of the last seven years are now behind me.
The guilt of "moving on" has been enormous and equally hard to deal with but I feel I can now grieve and live at the same time and I shall end this non-crafting post with a quote that really helped turn things around for me.
