My Mom departed this morning for home. My Dad and his wife Vikki left a few days ago, and my brother's visit was a whirlwind. Adam's folks are still visiting. I find it hard to make time to do my little updates here due to all the company. I am also going to turn in my LAST assignment for school TODAY.
In light of the little time but a lot of life we've been living, I've got a graduation collage to share. I'll probably include another one in the next day or two of June and family, and some details about her ever changing self. (You can read the text if you click on the image to enlarge.)
As for me, I'm feeling a bit of the letdown that comes when the ever-present stress disappears and all I am left with is "what now?" I've talked to a number of other people who feel the same way. I think it is a part of that need to have some purpose to one's existence. And a feeling of contribution, accomplishment, growth. I am looking forward to relaxation, but I'm not really sure I know how to just BE. And especially to just be without picking myself apart. That's what a lot of free time leads to I think - taking myself too seriously.
