It has been a rough week for me. I have struggled with my anxiety and depression. Both have won much of the time. Today, however, the pattern seems to be broken — or at least blurred.
It was difficult to get out of bed, but once I did things improved. I showered and got ready to attend my granddaughter’s baby dedication. After the church service, a large group of family and friends went out for lunch. At the restaurant, I sat beside my granddaughter, who is always a great source of entertainment.
After a leisurely lunch, my husband and I made a few stops to look for some bolts he needed for a truck repair he is doing. Along the way, we stopped at a convenience store for a drink. Now, I know this sounds as exciting as watching paint dry, but for me it was renewal. My spirits have been so low, that simply being out with other people made me feel better.
So I am heading into the week with this renewed spirit. It is my intention to hold onto it as long as I possibly can.
