Yesterday was just one of those tough, emotional days. I literally cried so much that I gave myself a really bad headache.
One of the things that I am thankful for in my life is my friends. There have been friends who have come into my life since Tom died that have rallied around me and seem to know just what I need, even when I don’t.
Yesterday, in the midst of an epic meltdown, one friend gently suggested that I go outside for a little while. By gently suggested, I mean he told me “Get outside for 10 minutes now” lol. The fresh air and sunshine did help me feel a little bit better. I went outside about 3 more times and just sat yesterday.
Then one of my co-workers and friend got another co-worker/friend and they drove over from Bartlesville to meet me in Ponca City for supper last night. We had such a good time. We laughed and talked and had a great meal together. Then we went shopping at Marshall’s. They’ve got me addicted to going there now, and if you know me, that is huge. I am not much of a shopper lol.
Then because I got to town early, I ran into the Wal-Mart in Ponca City to look for some new sweatpants (mine are getting kind of raggedy). I found some holiday flavored K-cups on clearance and stocked up on them. I’ve been enjoying a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha flavor today.
So, this was all just a reminder that there is always something to be thankful for, even on the hardest days. To these three friends, I am especially thankful for you today and everyday. To all my friends/family. Thank you!
