When I woke up this morning, I thought my whole day would be a terrible one.
To start, I had a nightmare that the object of my affection was
involved with someone else and I was just despondent. I understand that
dreams have no importance when it comes to the real world, but
witnessing such betrayal, even in dream, is disheartening.
Also, recent "happenings" here at home had left me in quite a fury. I
had been holding back some things that really needed to be said.
I spent the entire day cleaning.. not because I wanted to, but
because I was upset. I picked up puppy poop, swept, mopped. I even
drained and cleaned my sister's turtle pond. I fed all the little
critters and fed my own kiddohs too. Then I managed a load of laundry and
cooked some dinner before my quiet little bubble finally burst. With one
phone call, all the stitches that I had on my lips split open and every
little thing that had been pestering me was spilling out and gaining
momentum. I just couldn't keep my mouth shut anymore.
Finally, when all was said, my sister came home and we had a sit
down and a sincere talk. I must admit, it's rather nice to be on the receiving end of a
"sorry" for once. It's a word I've been told I say way too often. Suddenly, my problems at home seemed to get smaller. Then, a talk
on the phone from my love provided me with the reassurance I needed
after that horrible "dream" I had. It seems my day wasn't so awful after
Just when I thought things were alright, I got a message from a
little girly I know, and this unexpected news blew my mind. She's
family... Well, my ex-husband's family, but I still love her the same.
Turns out, she's pregnant with her first! When we were exchanging
messages, I was overjoyed and was hoping she wasn't joking. She could
have waited, or chosen to tell me another day. Heck, she could have let
me find out from other members of the family, as we don't exactly talk
often, but I wish she knew how much it means to me that she decided to
share this news with me. It really brightened my day. I am super excited
for her and I wish her the best!!!
This day has been nothing like I planned. Just a reminder, everyone, that
things can change without us even trying, so remain optimistic folks!
