Lighthouse for Life......












When I feel like I am drifting at sea,  and I do sometimes!  I try to remember the lighthouse for my life. 

I have been feeling Blah! Just keeping this real.

I  know this is another stage of life.   Heading into sailing the sea of, when you raise the kids, long marriage, bills.  New waters to tread, boring yet blessed.

I have finally realized life it just ordinary, everyday life.  I need to remember, when I was so tired, I was longing to get back to ordinary.

When I feel this way, I should remember the title of my blog, right.

Hi Kim,

This story reminded me so much of l0 years ago when I had a large tumor removed from my ovary,
followed by a hysterectomy.

I was so devastated by the worry, all the doctor's appointments, surgery, waiting for results, being incapacitated, not being able to do anything.

I got a call from my best friend growing up, we talked about everything else but how I felt. When she finally pressed me into an answer, I fell apart.

I kept saying, all I want is to go back to my ordinary life. I want to take care of my family, do the wash, go grocery shopping, etc. Out of all in life there was to miss, I found myself longing for my every day chores!

I learned from that experience what really matters to me and to cherish my ordinary life!
