Meanwhile, join us and link up for Post-It Note Tuesday, hosted by Only Parent Chronicles.
Don’t forget to check out my latest give away over on my Avon blog!!! It ends at midnight tomorrow!
I hadn’t been through the door in over a year. I wasn’t really sure how I would feel as I entered there. Earlier in the day I dropped off some things needed for later that day, but I was in a hurry, and had a helper with me. I really didn’t have time to think or feel…
But later, when I returned, the circumstances were different. ..
Once upon a time it was a haven, a nest, a safe place that made me feel loved and secure. The furnishings and atmosphere were warm and inviting, nothing fancy, but it was HOME.
But now it was different.
While I could hear the echos of the past within the walls, the present drove them back.
Nothing felt cozy and welcoming.
The furnishings are different, and while some of the occupants are the same, there are others now, the place just felt unfamiliar.
I don’t know what I expected to feel, but there was nothing friendly, inviting, or secure in what I sensed in the atmosphere. In fact, it felt rather empty and hollow, even rather negative at times. But mostly just empty.
There were times, around various individuals, I felt judgment and coldness despite the smiles and hugs, it was somewhat suffocating.
Other times a warm, missed, loved, and longed for… But mostly I just felt completely out of place.
I felt very out of place…
As memories of the past crept in from time to time, I began to wonder…
did I ever really belong there….
Don’t forget to check out my post from yesterday, I’m Giving Away Free Stuff so you can enter for the give away!!!
WordPress has challenged bloggers to participate in either Post A Day or Post A Week to give those of us that blog a challenge to post frequently on our blog pages.
I’ve decided that I want to do a post a day, which isn’t really that hard, I do it anyway for the most part. I LOVE writing and that just motivates me to have 365 posts in 2011 WordPress will supply us with ideas for prompts which I may or may not used depending on how taxed my poor old brain is for subject matter. Usually it isn’t a topic I struggle with as much as time to actually write. But I’m in!!!
