My life has returned to almost normal…The construction near my house is nearly done and the silence is golden…I can open the windows and actually hear myself think. Its been a long summer but now the tourists are gone and the highways and beaches are empty. It’s a wonderful sight. As usual, I can take my afternoon stroll on the beach looking for sea glass and thank God for the good things that are happening to me… In between the bad things that is..The thing is, bad stuff happens but when it does I don’t make rash decisions on what to do about it. I react by not reacting. We are all tested. I believe that. I know, lately I have been getting tired of hearing myself say, this too shall pass. So now I will move on into the next delima hopeing it won’t be that bad or too soon. I need a break.
