My sweet little guy has been suffering teething issues and keeping his Mom awake and now he has two little teeth in the bottom gum line and is much happier.
This afternoon has seen black skies and lights on since about three and heavy falls of rain., those people planning outdoor celebrations and weddings for today would be very disappointed, but the weather is something we cannot do anything about and must accept with good grace.
This time next week for us in Australia we will be getting children off to bed and putting out drinks and nibbles for Santa because he will be on his way - I do miss the excitement and wide eyed wonder of little children - but sometimes think I get excited enough to several of them.
I am thankful for so many things as you know and last night I spent time talking with someone who helped chase the clouds of melancholy away, heard me out and cried with me and then made sure I was okay and treated me with great dignity and respect. It was a special time and I needed that shoulder to cry on. We all do and I am learning that tears are healing and I am sure there will be more for me. The whole experience of ill health, facing my own mortality, waiting for results and then waiting for an organ to be available, plus the surgery, recovery and Stevens Johnson has taken it's toll of me and although I am alive and well and loving my life, there are some things to be faced, dealt with and accepted. With the support of someone who has been to the edge too - I am getting there and we are going to be fine. I am ready to fly and shedding the tears helped. Thank you Joe.
While you are so busy with Christmas - please be sure to be kinder than you need to be - to think of those who cannot find joy at this special season and take time to hear their story and support them. I know several friends for whom this Christmas is going to be difficult and I wrap them in love and tie the package with the ribbons of friendship.
Sending love and hugs to you and thank you for visiting the Musings from My Heart - a contented heart today.
Love and hugs,
