The last three weeks have been a real learning experience for me. I learned where I come by my organizational skills (or lack there of). I learned where my messiness in cooking comes from. I learned that I have more patience than I could ever have thought. I learned that worry doesn't bring about change nor does it bring about a quicker answer.
Sometimes, all we can do is keep each other company. Our presence can offer support and take away the fear just as when we were children and our parents' hug could take away our fears.
I am home now and the house is still standing. The family even remembered to water my plants (small miracle there). The Wonderdog gave me the warmest greeting. We still have no real answers as to Mom's painful back. One day, the doctor offers reassurances and the next, more questions. Must remember that my worry will not help anybody but it is difficult and now that I am once again too far to be of help, the worry deepens. They really have nobody nearby to depend upon.
And I am so over winter.... fighting a cold as I type. I will do my best to catch up with everybody and make regular postings. One more thing I learned, the world still spins even when I don't pick up a camera for three weeks. ;)
