Well this week sure did not go as I had thought it would. Oh my what a hard day it was yesterday. Why does there have to be such not nice people in the world? And please can they stay away from me and my family?
Unfortunately there was a brief period of time yesterday when I felt totally defeated. I was trying not to be unnecessarily emotional, but I wanted to just run away and hide. (Where to I have no idea. The forest seems like a good idea...) I am not usually like that. Jason was dealing with the unfortunate situation much better than I was, usually he is the one to get more upset and so I guess I have to stay calm, try to be the one encouraging positivity. I never cry if he does, I don't know how it works, it's just how it happens.
It would have been simple to not be mentioning this here at all, but you know, life does not just always go on perfectly smooth.
And I am happy to say that I think I am all better now! (Situation not perfectly fixed, just me and us okay.)
Because you know what? There are really nice people in this world too. We have lots of them in our life. And they reach out with kindness to us in such a generous way. Somehow their simple words help make everything better.
There have also been some kind thoughts and words from sweet friends this past week that brought a smile to my face and just the times I needed it.
I was also cheered by playing with fabric.
Passing by the ironing board, these fabrics were laying out, I had set them together the other day. They make me happy. Started thinking about what I am going to make with them, started feeling better. Got lost in sewing thoughts.
And speaking of friends, we have had company this past week. One of Jason's skateboarding friends that we have known for many years now, he doesn't live here anymore but comes back to visit every summer.
So last week they went on a backpacking trip. Up a river, or, you might say, up a gorge. Since Jason had our camera I thought I would go ahead and share with you some of his pictures.
Jason says it was so incredibly amazingly beautiful (or something like that) and that he wishes we could all go there. But we never will. Because it was one of the craziest hikes they have ever done and they will never be going there again either!
This is near where they camped.
They took the easier way home.

Wishing you many beautiful and inspiring days ahead!
