Give-away closes Monday night, 20 February. Winner and next give away announced on 21 February, 2012.

Three Blog Years: Give-Away One

This blog began in February 2009, three years ago. It has been such an essential part of my growth, reaching out and telling my truth to you has been very healing. I thank you. I will do three give-aways ways to express, in small part, my gratefulness for this blog and you. To enter, leave a comment on this post. Give-away for these earrings ends next Monday night, 13 February. The winner and the next give-away will post 14 February, 2012, Valentine's...

You know how you feel it coming on? First, you're tired, then there is that little headache, backache, scratch in the throat. You ignore hoping it goes away. At some point, as symptoms march on, you realize and then admit its a cold and you're getting sick.

Its been like that for the last few weeks. Restless dreams I don't want, then poor sleep. Lacking the energy to leave a supportive comment on a blog. Lack of being able to get it up again for another dinner even though I love feeding these people. Day dreams of time away without the chores, in the sun, just me and the feel of warmth and lack of demands. I admit it, this is not just grief, it's depression. I called it a hibernation last winter. Trying to accept it and let it wash over me and then recede as it always does.

I want to see my mother. I want that simple ability I had for so many years to just get in the car and go see her. That voice, those green eyes, the little sounds of her. I have been doing well, I have been getting on without her, can't I be rewarded with a short little visit today?

Its difficult today.

Reverb 2011 Post 4

February first brings the final pages of my December Daily Journal in which I followed Hope Wallace Karney's Reverb11 prompts. Post three ended at Day 23...
Day 24: phrase or saying picked up in 2011.
My dear daughter was very helpful to point out annoying repetitive things I said...
Day 25(above right): beliefs...
Day 26: birthday celebration.
Day 27: what could have been done without during the year...
The birthday celebration is chronicled in a little book sewn onto the page.
Got a bicycle and new sunglasses. I actually love this dorky picture of myself...
This whole journal is simple palette of kraft paper, creams and browns, bit of red.
Day 28: a regret.
Day 29: most authentic moment. Painful.
I used a plastic sleeve to represent the transparency that authenticity brings.
Day 30: most important lesson.
God told me while I was walking (does She talk to you like that?) to 'stop' take in the view...be. I was then promptly told to 'keep going.'
Use as needed...
Day 31: greatest wish for 2012.
Be a bridge...which leads me to choose bridge as my word to focus on for the new year.
I want to be a bridge to my daughter's future, not an obstacle. I realize this has so much meaning for me in all relationships including my own with each day,
about remaining present,
on the bridge,
enjoying the view...

February brings brings the third anniversary of this blog.
It has been a loving support to myself, a gift to me really.
I want to celebrate with a give-away, coming next.

I also found a product I was surprised and shocked by...
No, I wasn't sleepy or high...
