Labor Day weekend is over...

August flew by in the blink of an eye.  Kids are back at school - how can I have a 7th grader???  And how can my baby be a 3rd grader???

My sister and her two boys and two cats were here for three weeks.  They are moving across country  and stayed with us while her hubby started work/looked for a place to live.  It all went well - great having her here and hanging out with my nephews - 3 and 1years old.  My sister has some anxiety issues as well, but I have been hesitant to tell her about this site.  She would be a welcome addition - she is funny and kind and smart and clever.  But this is my oasis.  She would know who I am, and the blessed anonimity of this site would disappear for me.  

I still have such a hard time being weak - vulnerable - to my family.  See?  I even think "weak" with its negative connotations versus "vulnerable" with its neutral connotation.  This is my space to be vulnerable - to share - to vent - to be free.  I can't share it with her.  Not yet.  am I being selfish?  or am I putting myself first for once?

They are at their final destination, at least we are on the same coast now.

Hi friend!

No, you're not being selfish! You're sharing your home, your life and your recovery with her! And, she is benefitting from that. Eventually she will find her way to something that will help her, like this site has helped you!

I have encouraged my daughters and many friends to come here. None of them has.

I have begun to think that there is a Higher Power who leads people to the places they should be. I got led here. And that Higher Power will lead them to where they need to be. I can just pass on whatever health and serenity and happiness I get.

I can't believe it's been 11 months since your hubby deployed! I'm SO excited that he may be home for Christmas!

You tell him that for me, okay? :) I'm here in Florida rooting for an early homecoming!

So, what's the deal - are y'all moving?

Take care - have a great day!
