This week brought unpleasant old emotions related to family. I really thought I was over some of these emotions having worked on them years ago. Yet, I experienced a deep hurt last weekend related to the same emotions. I am actively working on moving past this and moving forward. I talked to others this week and came to the conclusion that for whatever reason those involved are incapable of being as supportive as I would like. It truly is time to let it go and to focus on those who are supportive. Today I am grateful for members of my extended family who are supportive and for my friends in Blogland, on Facebook, and in person who reached out and offered their support. I really did get by this week with a little help from my friends and extended family. I am back on track thanks to all of you.
I am also grateful that as of today Tony Attwood listed information about my novel on his site under fictional books. You can find it by clicking on this link: Tony Attwood – Author of The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome – Delightfully Different. Thank you again Tony! Having your support means the world to me.
Even Egerts enjoy shady places on hot summer days. Today I am grateful for nature.
Flowers like people have many variations, of the same species. Today, I am grateful for differences that brighten our world.
