It may seem obvious, but have you asked someone around you today if they are OK?
Have you actually listened to their response?
We are surrounded by so many social networks nowadays that sometimes we forget to reach out to our workmates, friends, school parents or even our families and make sure that they are OK and let them know that we are there if they need to talk.
You know every so often it gets a bit messy around here.
I always try to keep it pretty for you, I don’t want you to come over and feel down.
I want you to enjoy your visit and leave smiling, leave hungry, or even leave inspired.
I feel like I have been hiding this last week, peeking a little into your lives yet not sharing any of my life with you.
Mothers day went by and I felt a little sad. A little part of me wanted my dad to see what a great mum I am or one that I hoped to be.
It’s strange but I just missed him so much, I thought I was dealing with the grief and all of a sudden it just came flooding back.
Sorry, I don’t have many words this week but I invite you for a cup of tea and a glimpse at a few things we’ve been up to
mother’s day heart pillow for my mum
mother’s day heart pillow for my little sis
toy picnic using vintage picnic set in a suitcase found on the nature strip
op shopping with my little guy
hanging out with my little assistant
making birthday cakes
Enjoy a cupcake and see you soon friends and if you feel like voting, please pop round here
I love that we are just a group of girls chatting away, talking about our problems, sipping tea, reading about each other and feeling like we all belong to this group that no one outside it can understand.
I love that I was able to share my sadness and that you knew exactly what to say to make me feel better, that I wasn’t alone, I am not going crazy, you knew because you felt it at some time or another.
I love that you sent me personal emails as well with your stories and that you didn’t mind telling me what you are going through or have been through.
I love that you are there for me if I needed a chat.
I love that your arms opened up sooo wide to let me in.
So today I am especially grateful for your big open arms that made things a little better even if for a moment…thank you ♥
I feel a bit like this lately, i haven’t been around much, google reader says I’m on 1.9 posts a week.
I’m feeling a bit flat, a bit emotional, things get a little difficult to cope with. Tantrums and squabbles are just too difficult.
The camera is not my best friend at the moment, the images just don’t seem to work like I want them to.
I get like this every so often, I deal with it and keep going.
I have been “sad”* before and I just deal with it on my own.
Do you ever get like this, for no reason, just because?
What do you say to a 5yr old that asks why you were crying?
Hugs to you and sending hugs to a gorgeous girl who is on the road to dealing with her struggles.
