|California Dreaming special bag|
|Special Surprise tucked inside|
QL's sweet little girls met me at the door and didn't even blink at my formal evening wear. She already had popcorn out on the table ready to go - I thought it would be a simple "grab and go", but then she handed me the most beautiful crafted bag with a pretty pink bow tied around it. I dissolved in sobbing... It really is beautiful and I felt so yucky. Not just on the outside, but on the inside and my frustrations came out until I ran away. No one packed my bags, though Honey heartily encouraged me to hurry up and run over to QL's house for that "much needed" popcorn, though we still had a batch or two left. My boys didn't say "see ya" and the dog cowered in the back room. I think I've lost my joy and have become a nag and on my way to letting my bitterness and anger get the best of me.
I'm so thankful I ran away last night, because she listened and shared her heart with me, held me till I sobbed no more, was a true friend. She didn't "fix my problem", but she really helped my clouded heart with words of profound wisdom for where I hurt the most - my "Momma side."
Sometimes, as moms we feel so overwhelmed and feel like the only hope is to run away. I'm so thankful I didn't go far and I had a friend indeed, and hope that if you ever feel like running away, you have a friend of the heart as well.
ps. Didn't she make a beautiful colorful little bag made from California Dreaming material she had in her stash? I do love this friend!
Well, last night The Momma and Momma Hume went out for a little GNO at just the right place. Time passed so quickly. It lifted my spirits, encouraged me, and was just what I needed.
