Today is Sunday, and it will be amazing.
I slept until 9, which is very unusual for me, but it did me some good, I think.
I am showered and dressed for church, and with Nathan’s help all the kids are ready, too.
We are functioning so well today!
I doubled my alleve to be sure I can go to church, and will stay long as I can. Already I am looking for my Owasso friends, remembering I am in Bartlesville, and then checking myself to get my brave pants on and make new friends here instead of hiding.
I am really good at hiding.
Introverts appreciate good friendships, we just aren’t necessarily skilled at the niceties to get them started.
Or, maybe I am just not skilled at the nice part. Heh.
Tonight I will rest at home while Nathan drives our nieces Billie and Jessica home, so that I can function as well as possible on Monday.
I am sad to see them go so early, but know it is necessary, and am so grateful we had this week together to play while life was still “normal” (mostly).
They made me a “happy picture” to keep by my sick bed, they said. They are “butterfly cells sticking their tongue out at cancer cells because cancer is a bully”. I love them, and I love the picture, and I will definitely keep it close by.
