Surviving the Spanish Shutdown: Day 19, I think

I lost it yesterday.  The heaviness was too much for my shoulders.  The grief of my dog, my country and the world overwhelmed every cell in my body.  I feel vulnerable all of the time.  There isn’t enough I can do to protect my husband, my daughter and myself.  And on top of it, I am more “home-sick” than I have ever been.  The longer predictions of when life will return to normal, the longer it will be until I see my family.

And then I woke up this morning and felt better.  I hugged my husband and danced with my daughter.  We took the long route when we walked our two pups.  I baked a butternut squash to make into soup.  This evening, Dolly Parton is going to read Squirms her night time story.  The air is crisp and clean.  The sky is just about a blue as you can ever imagine.

I fell apart last night.  Love and gratititude put me back together today.

  1. Nancy – Hello from Saudi Arabia! We too are on a pretty strict lock-down. No flights in or out, 7 pm curfew and only essential movement during the day. I was so happy to get your address for the blog site again. Looks like you are handling the “crazy” pretty well. Keep up that great posts – I will love seeing them again.
