Do you ever feel lonely even when you are surrounded by people? This is how I have been feeling and I have a thousand reasons for it…and yet no reasons for it too. I am in a good old funk and I just want to wallow in it for a while. I would like to head upstairs and get my pajamas on and curl up in bed and maybe read, but maybe not read, but just be free to stare off into space for a while.
But as I write this I am sitting on my living room floor and my six-year old is on the couch right behind me with her legs on my shoulders and her chin on the top of my head, and she is making pony tails in my hair. And it feels awfully nice.
The evening routine will begin shortly. Dinner, clean-up, kid homework, etc etc etc. You know the drill. And so I need to be unselfish, unself-absorbed, and just get on with it.
