Ebb and Flow

I realize it has been over a year since I’ve posted on this blog. I can’t bring myself to close this site, because I used to love posting. And, I still do, as a matter of fact. Life and it’s trials and stresses and (you know the drill) has gotten in the way of my inspiration and my time. So the blog just fell to the wayside.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been wanting to write. Not knowing where to start. Do I tell in detail the story of stress and loss? Caring for my Mother, losing my sister and subsequently losing my Mother, too.

Or do I just pretend everything is OK and I’ve just been too busy to write. 

For the past few years, I have spent a great deal of time caring for my elderly Mother, who subsequently passed away in January of this year. Since her death and the closing of her affairs, I have begun to realize the toll that this took on my body and spirit.

It’s been 10 months now since my Mom has passed. I am beginning to feel my spirit stir again and my health and enthusiasm are returning.

So, this is where I begin… again. Living within the ebb and flow of life. Continuing with the things I love.

Love and hugs, Vicki and the Bears

P.S. We have a new addition to the family. His name is Jackie and he is a “dog.” He was my Mom’s companion and he has come to live with us. More on him in my next post!
