The past five days have been a bit of a blur my small dose of the flu turned into pneumonia giving me far too much time to think about the present and the past!
When I was younger I had such a carefree attitude towards my life not a great deal ever really worried me. I believed I could do whatever I wanted almost fearless or so I thought. A bit of an unconventional thinker, looking out for all that life could bestow on me. Not sure what I was looking for back then, just out to enjoy myself like most other girls my age basking in the freedom of being independent. Then one day I met the man that completely took my breath away and stole my heart forever and the rest as they say…….is our history.
As a small child we use to move around a great deal, I think this may have been the reason why I had a tendency also to be happy to move state or towns throughout my 20’s and 30’s I always looked forward to what that new place could bring me…..or maybe a little gypsy lived inside me.
How different life becomes when you grow older and have a family and responsibilities it changes our lives forever we no longer think or put of ourselves first. It wasn’t until my children started school that I had to change my ways, even so, I’d often find myself thinking how exciting it would be to move somewhere new again. However back then I had the luxury of taking them with me. Now grown adults with little ones of their own any thought of separation and not seeing them nearly every day just never enters my mind.
I think that little gypsy inside me has long flown away!
My family have such an impact on my emotional state of mind in the most beautiful amazing way without them even realizing it. Having them around me these past couple of days trying to make me feel better through laughter get well letters and homemade gifts from my five precious grandchildren…….even number four developing her own special cough to go with mine LOL….I might have to retrieve my last post… hence me been, “home alone” without any of the things I needed.
They once again reminded me that whatever else is going on in my life, when I’m around them everything else seems insignificant….Even Pneumonia!!!
