My Story Fancy New Slippers
« on: February 07, 2019, 12:26:08 PM »
Fancy New Slippers. LOL. Kind of a strange title. I mentioned in a prior post that my SIL (H's sister) bought me these really cool (and expensive!) slippers for Christmas. They are wine-colored (how appropriate) velvet loafers. So cute you can even wear them out. And I am NOT a flat shoe gal! Anyway, they remind me that these people are H's blood. And yet they are spoiling me on Christmas. We were not always so close. Both them and me were to blame for that. But, we've all softened a bit since BD. And now we are amazingly close. I spend holidays and vacations with them....without H! Who would have ever thought???

 I guess mostly these wine-colored slippers remind me that there is always a positive side to things, even though we cannot necessarily see it at first. And that we are surrounded by blessings that we forget about. This journey has not been easy, and I've fought tooth and nail against the "process." But still I can see so many blessings have been bestowed upon me. I have a beautiful S12, wonderful family, the most amazing friends, a lovely home, a fantastic career, my health is back to normal....I could go on. And hey writing all this brought a huge smile to my face.   

I do have a few funny updates about H. But I wanted to start this off on a most positive note. Because, I fully intend on taking the bull by the horns and retaking control of my life. Mostly though, I want to just be present and fully appreciate all of the blessings that surround me.  Thanks everyone for joining me once again. I must have said this a million times but, I honestly do not know what I would do without you all!!

Attaching, KIT.

Love the idea of what the fancy new slippers represent. Keep looking for the small (and big) blessings.
