I had lost my friend for awhile. Today I found her again but I don’t know if that is a good thing or not. Cuz what I actually found were her blogs, her public self, not her.
Ever have that happen?
Of course, I was delighted to catch up with her again, to read her blogs, to hear the path her thoughts were taking , the direction in which her life was moving. If I’d been close enough I’d have given her a hug. I’d have said ‘you look soooo good!’
From what I’d read it seemed she was making progress towards her goals -writing her novel, getting it published, expanding her ministry, making commitments and keeping them. By comparison, like a fat old bear I’d been sleeping,hibernating. All I’d done lately was ferment.
Do you know that feeling? It’s not a good one, is it?
Why do we do that? Why do we look at others and just assume we’ve been less, done less, are less?
Whose to say that a little fermenting, doing a little serious stewing in my own juices was not exactly what I should have been doing? Another day will tell if this wine was worth the wait or not.
As for today – well the azalea’s are beginning their glorious dance with spring and who am I to complain.
