well, ms Sarah came to visit this weekend, thank the Lord!
i would have been in hysterics if she weren't there to ground me this weekend.
first i got in a car crash on halloween night. freaked me out, obviously if you read my last blog...
and Sunday night was the memorial for Patrick. that was a bit rough for me to be thinking about all week long. well, pretty much since the quarter started i have been freaking out about it. But it went well, and i sang my song i wrote for everyone who loves Patrick. and it was just a good thing. just scary.
once again, so glad Sarah was here.
i also made a long list this week about all the ways i have not been taking care of myself since i have been back in Seattle, and also made a list of ways to start getting back to taking better care of me.
i am working on it slowly, and have been the journey of better caring of me.
1. reading my bible everyday again. so good.
2. a fresh look. dying and cutting my hair.
i haven't dyed my hair in over 2 years.
and i have bee letting it just grow and grow for a couple years. so it was time for something new....
i dyed it strawberry blonde, light red-ish.
and i cut short thick bangs.
and i am not even going to ask if you like it or not being i did it just for me.
if you do like it, awesome!
if you don't, cool its not your hair.
when crisis hits, which is obviously pretty often, i tend to just stop taking care of myself. so i am putting this bad trend in the past, and moving on to better self care pastures.
there will always be hardship, but God is good.
and there is always a chance for renewal, re-growth, healthy change, adaptation.
