Fast Day #5

I felt great the last 4 days.  Had to stop and rest now and then, but pretty good overall.  Today, woke up with pain in various places, including a new one, and so I'm hitting lots of water, green tea with cinnamon, lemon, ginger and honey.  I have cooked ahead a concoction of carrots, potatoes and onions, and used a bit of the broth last night.  Today I will end my fast at midnight with the leftovers my son has been stashing for me.  Today, is also the first day of The Littlest Wiseman and I am considering which day I will attend this year, with my daughter's role having shifted.  I am sowing the best seeds of reconciliation I can muster.  [...]

My friend Nancy M. came today bearing gifts of food and a poinsettia.[...]

First Entry. So hard.

Honestly, I don't know what to say.  I am full of passion for many things, but lack the resources.  I have not had my car running for quite a while.  For many years I worked hard just to survive with two children, but now they are adults, doing their best to adult their way through life.  I long for that day when bygones will be bygones...when people will not go out of their way to hurt me.  I weather it all, but at a price.  I love regardless, I just want peace among people.  What more can I say.[...]
