Good things

So, I am not working. I am trying to concentrate on the positive. I will at least be here  for my daughter’s 21st birthday and my husband’s the day before. I can plan celebrations and parties.

Except it turn out that my daughter has no time to fit in her blood family over her birthday weekend (there are friends that she has already made plans with) and my husband doesn’t particularly care for birthday celebrations. I am left feeling like an idiot for even wanting to mark them.

Bur the good things do exist because I am not away this week: I am able to comfort my husband at the time of his father’s death; I am able to tell my daughter that her family want so much to celebrate her birthday, even though she doesn’t have time to do so.

It all condenses down to the basic element of family: support and love.

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.
