I live a simple, quiet life. And I consider myself blessed to have a wonderful family, friends and a lovely home. It would seem my life is perfect.
But it's not.
In fact, I've been feeling miserable these past few months. I'm sick, tired and weak. And I am not enjoying 40 so much. There are days when I don't want to get out of bed; I don't want to write, to think and to feel.
However, I get up, I smile and bravely go my way. I do my best to make life happy and normal for my kids.
Luckily, I have this little space I can turn to. It's my saving grace. Here I can find some comfort, peace and happiness - even for a brief moment.
For now, I keep active with the family - gardening, soccer and skating are on the list. Anything to forget my troubles.
I'm certain I'll resolve these health problems soon. I'm seeing my doctor again next week. Hopefully, he can put me out of my misery.
Until then, I smile and wait patiently.
