I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster since my son found his dream girl. Some days pass uneventfully — others do not. Today was one of those emotional ones.
I awoke today fully prepared to finally get the treasures out of my son’s room, only to find I spent most of the day fighting tears instead of moving his “stuff.” Telling myself I was being silly did no good — thank heavens I had plenty of tissues handy.
As the day wore on I began to think I would have to go grocery shopping for more tissues! Finally in desperation, I called my friend, Barb. That girl is such a miracle worker.
As I blubbered out my words, she calmly kept saying: “Take a deep breath.” Eventually I calmed down enough to actually have a conversation, and even laugh a little. For a time, all was well with the world… And then, like a fool, I started thinking again and darn if I didn’t have to go buy more tissues!
