Believe There is Light in the Dark

So I want to blog and all of a sudden I can't think of a thing to say. Like, it's been almost 2 months since my last post. My husband is wondering what alien took over his wife's body because of the silence.

I've been stuck in a funk. Challenged to share something of value but ... Nada. Nothing.

I'm thinking, "What’s my problem?" I conclude Thanksgiving and Christmas coupled with cold, rain and the economy. What does that mean? Well, if truth be known the cold, rain and economy are surface issues. If I dig a little deeper what I discover are old memories, unrealistic expectations I have put on myself, unmet dreams, and fear of the unknown; add this to the holiday season and I got myself a case of melancholy. Yikes! That sounds like a disease no hot cup of ginger, lemon and honey could cure!

Melancholy appears pensive, dark and silent.

These days I am being stretched to roll with unforeseen adventures which are challenging me to laugh, have fun and trust like a child in spite of my circumstances. It's not always easy for me because I missed out on that "child-like" part growing up.
