It's been a difficult week (or longer), to say the least. Very hard to get through, but things are turning around. I understand everyone has rough patches, some are the size of a hiccup, other's spell last a lot longer. That is why I am thankful for a friend tonight. She had a large gathering at her house this evening and included me. It was touching that I responded very late and etiquette would say I should have just declined. She graciously let me come, "just as I am" ~ mess and all. It meant a lot to me.
So the memories aspect of the evening. My friend, lives down a bunch of "country back roads". As Christmas is just around the corner, it reminded me of driving to Wisconsin, to visit family. The roads windy, sometimes you would get a fog and the lights (street lights, Christmas lights, or security lights) look amazing. It was a little nerving driving down these roads, but the trip home was a bit easier, more relaxing. I was pleasantly reminded of the radio show "The Shadow"; so much so, I pulled out some of the cd's I "wished for" a number of Christmas ago. I am now, kicking back, glass of wine, and listening to one of the shows.
Enjoying a quiet moment before bed, enjoying the memories, enjoying friendship!
