I've mentioned before that we have had extended family issues and they all seemed to have come to a peak the first weeks of September. On this beautiful crisp and sunny September Saturday afternoon as I sat outside watching my wonderful husband work, my heart was just so heavy, I couldn't even smile. I was so depressed about the situation and I had no motivation. I was walking around like a zombie. Eric was so understanding and let me just be a zombie. He was just so great with me. He let me talk it all out and gave me sound advice.
What has been so hard is that I was trying to protect elderly people whom I love from a manipulating person who has taken everything from them, but it's true, they don't listen to me and they don't want my help, so I needed to let it go and let God fight the battle for me. This was affecting my life, my husband's life, my kid's lives and I was not going to let it do that any more. I prayed and did give it over to God. Slowly, peace came and answers came and I feel like it is out of my hands now and most of the drama has resolved.
Oak trees are my favorite and I feel so very blessed that we have many on our property. I enjoy hunting for acorns. They have always intrigued me since I was a little girl. I especially love finding the ones with their caps still on!
