With all that is going on in the world now days, and all that is happening in my own life, in a moment of quiet today I began to feel a little homesick.
Then I realized that I don't really know where my home is any more.
On the bright side of things, because there is always a bright side (if I keep saying this I will eventually start believing it), tomorrow is daylight savings and I get to wake up an hour earlier than usual so that I can go to work an hour earlier.  Yep, it doesn't get much brighter than that!
What, who, me, facetious?  Never!

Good to see you posting, and still on good form, Jody. Home is where the heart is - I hope that the two match (soon).

Jody. Jody. It seems you've come so far along on this new journey and you've hit a bit of melancholy.

I promise you, you will find your home ... in your apartment -- maybe -- more likely in your heart and soul.

It's tough not to lose sight of who we are and where we belong when life altering changes happen.

But eventually, we know.

Hey Jody!
I hope you realize that even with all the changes & sadness, YOU are & always will be the heart of everything.

Blessings! It will get easier. And yes, saying it over and over does help.

It's been a long time since I visited with you. I was saddened to read your previous entries but proud of you for having such courage.
I once cooked for hundreds of people at work but only four at home. Now there is just the two of us I tend to overfeed us as I still cook for four since my son and daughter flew the nest. lol
It's just a fact of life I suppose.
I hope the good weather comes along soon and lifts your spirits. I noticed some forsythia blossoming in my daughter's garden today. It was such a grey day until then...hoping a little more light reaches into that tunnel of yours and you notice that there is 'life' out there at last! It's not far away...I can't promise you that you wont stop doubling up on portions sizes though. lol

Oh,honey going forward,on your own, with your life is unsettling. For years you were in the Wife/Mommy mode with so much to do, no time to think what the future would bring..expecting everything to stay the doesn't. I've walked this path too, there are perks though...take a bath (uninterrupted)
actually read a whole book in days instead of months lol. Cook what you want and ignore the masses lol. I lost my Joe, my house (still have the land) and I am living in a mobile home (its nice) but five years ago I would have been appalled by all this..I would have said it would never happen. I am blogging again come Sandi

Thank you all for your encouragement. I'm really fine, it's just that with the tsunami and other things affecting my home state of Hawaii, and living with my son after moving out from my future-ex's, I realized that I really don't have a home. I know that home is where the heart is, but quite honestly I'm not even sure where my heart is at the moment. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, because where ever it is, it is healing, and one day, soon I hope, I will find my way home.

I agree 100% with Guido. I tell everybody my body may be back in Alabama, but I left my heart in Colorado! I have missed you, girlfriend! So happy to find you again!

God Bless,

Susan (Rjet33)

You haven't posted in several years in Through the Eyes of the Beholder. :( Do you not have time for photography now that you are working? That would really be a shame. I just got my first DSLR and am having a ball with it. It will probably take me the rest of my life to learn how to use it! :-P I put most of my photos on Facebook now. I'm Susan Johnson Rudd on FB.
