Hi: I feel like I am giving you a nickel tour of what I do around my home. Does anyone care what it looks like? Probably not, but that's OK. I love to blog and really enjoy hearing from you. So if you are reading this, this is my life. Anyone else think it is a little weird to have strangers who you will probably never meet, looking in your home? The strangest thing is, I don't think of you as strangers, but friends. Friends who care about me and I care about you.
I have been thinking to much, (dangerous, I know). I finally got out today. I have been a prisoner in my own home with all this rain. I do not like to drive in it, so I have been home. My son, the snowboarder, is finally home. Thank God! He thought he was going to get snowed in. Which he thought would be way cool. God help me!
While I was out today, I had the weirdest thing happen to me. Some of you may know, I have been having a difficult time, these past few months. I was in the parking lot of Vons, putting my groceries in the car, when a lady, out of no where, came over to my car and just stared at me. I am a little peculiar but, this was different. It was raining a little bit, and she just stood there, looking at me. She was no further than 2 feet away from me, I could have touch her. The lot was well lit. The weird thing about this was, she looked exactly like my mother-in-law, who I dearly loved and miss. She has been dead for almost 2 years. She smiled at me with such love in her eyes. It was like she was saying "Don't worry, Martha, everything is going to be all right!" I quickly put the bags I had in my hand in the car, so I could talk to her. When I turned around she was gone, just gone. It was only for a few seconds, she was just gone. My mother-in-law had a large chest, so did this lady, it was her. I know that can't happen. I still am not sure what happen to me. Have I been in this house to long? Do I just miss her so much, I needed her reassurance?
I am a Born Again, Christian, so was she. I know where my mother-in-law is at. So, maybe it is time for me to take that "little yellow pill". I just had to tell someone, so you are it. Please do not stop visiting my blog, because now I am crazy.
It happened, I promise!
Changing subject quickly. I have started to miss "pink" in my home, so my living room is in the process of getting decorated for February. Know you are really going to think I am crazy!
OK, hope all is well with you!
Only a few more days until the give away. (Safe subject!) Get all the 411 in the post below. I am posting this before I change my mind. Blessings, Martha
