"Friendship is the shadow of the evening,
which increases with the setting sun of life."
Jean de la Fontaine
Yesterday there was a phone call to a friend.
Just a few minutes of her voice made all the difference.
From this morning's journal:
Give Away: Shadows. Sigh...I change my mindset. I carefully construct healthier boundaries. I make choices that are hard - yet right for me. Still there are voices/feelings/accusations that lurk in the shadows. Always present. Never know when they'll pounce. Today, with each pounce, I will give away what comes at me from the shadows.
Give Access: Color. Leaves and light and bright pink sweatshirts. Happy music, bright nails, painted skies and a vegetable rainbow. Today I'm looking for bright, cheerful color!
Give Thanks: It's Friday. Which means it's almost time for the two days I get with my husband each week. This is good. Thankful doesn't even begin to cover the degree to which I cherish this man and our life together.
