Throw Out Fifty Things

I got a lot of things done today because we have rain that is also snow at times so it was
not fit day for man or beast to go outside. I did clear out at least 50 things since I started to
sort out the bedroom..

I just put down check marks as I do not want to get bogged down with lists. I know myself
too well- some is gone, some things went to where they really belonged, and some is going to be giving
away as soon as I get a good day for travel. The main thing is that it has all left my

I have some of my things, some of our things and a few things of papa hubby's for decor.
I am not matchie-pooh lady so if it is something that brings me joy I have it in here.
I fixed up the DVD player so I can relax and watch my/our favorite DVDs- (( I set
it up all by myself and it works). I still think in terms of ''ours'' often.

It is still half bed-room and half-office. Office really means where I have my laptop and where
I write notes to my friends. I do the bills out in the dining room. I call it office only to feel more
official. (smile)

My bedroom is now peaceful and filled with memories of me and we. There are special moments when
I think- here I am, andI feel joy again. And even though- life is not fair and often hard I have
made a place where I can have moments of peace. Moments where I can just 'be me.''

Because of the grief there has not been a lot of room for emotional baggage to stay. Cancer has a way
of changing one's ambitions and priorities. For me, the only real things that matter now are love and to
notice and value the small moments of joy in my life. Things like the sunbeams on my kitchen floor,
a sunshine walk, my dog's tail wagging, smiling at strangers before they smile at me..........

I have learned with a deep awareness to find the things that really matter now.
I have the need to learn and to grow, and to be all of who I am/ was meant to be.
And as I share my blanket of memories with friends and ''you''; my prayer is that you will be blessed.
