I had started my morning ready to write about good things and happiness. Then I made the mistake of looking at the news. So much bad and anger out there. And then I read things about my beliefs that people of other faiths are saying/assuming and it seems to have reversed everything. I do not shove my faith down anyone’s throat. I will answer questions if asked. I do not assume that my faith is for everyone. Everyone has different needs when things come down to it. But I am honestly getting tired of others belittling my faith because they believe that theirs is the only way. It is NOT the only way.
I am sorry. I try to keep things like this out of my blog. But this morning, because it is Halloween, everything seems to have just exploded. I am grateful for my time with my friends and family last night. It helped me find my center. I didn’t know how things would go as I managed to mess up quite a few things (it started with me not getting the right amount of ingredients for the stew Chris was making). But things turned out pretty well.
Work was fun but long. I dressed as Jason Voorhes from the Friday the 13th movies. Complete with machete. Good times! Today I hope to get some work done on my novel. It has been a few days since I had time to do anything with it. I also need to reach out to a few people online. I have been out of touch with everything going on. And I should reach out to my parents. It has been a bit since I chatted with them as well. That might wait until tomorrow. We’ll see how things go.
I want to take Stella for a walk at the park either today or tomorrow. I might wait until tomorrow for that as well. I am hoping to take a day to sort things out. I want to tend to things around here. I think I will wrap this up. I find myself staring off into space and my mind wandering. I do have some new photos to share. I will try to find a way to condense some of the photos we took on my phone to share some stuff from work too. The files are too big and I don’t have enough room on my site. But I think I can figure something. Thanks for reading and stay safe!

You’re trying your best and that is more than enough. I’m so proud of you for actively seeking out good things in a world that’s so dark right now. There are not enough happy stories in our newspapers – just doom and gloom. Sending you big, warm hugs from Oz, J xx

Thank you. Sometimes I wonder if I am doing the right thing anymore. ❤️Much love and puppy kisses from Michigan xx
ps. The picture of that orange/yellow leaf on it’s own is FABULOUS. I love it. I’d frame that.
