Howdy, gang. Sorry I’m way late with today’s post. Normally, I try to post in the morning, but today kind of got away from me.
I took an unplanned “mental health” day today. You see, tomorrow is my wedding anniversary and it’s the first one without my bride. I knew that emotions were going to be running higher than normal today so I decided to stay in the house. It turned out to be a very good call.
Kevin was out most of the day running errands and visiting with friends. In fact, he’s out right now as I type this. As for me, I spent most of the day in my recliner with Buddy (one of my cats) snuggled up close to me. I fired up the old Amazon Echo and listened to George Jones and Loretta Lynn music most of the day. That was pretty good.
My mood hasn’t been one of despair, but I just haven’t felt too sociable today. That’s probably a good thing because another “friend” decided to walk away. People do that when you have a major life change. They just don’t know how to deal with the “new you.” I really think I’ll write a blog pot on that sometime. It’s a fascinating phenomenon.
This afternoon, I read about the passing of country/christian singer Joey Feek. That dear lady has had such a battle. 40 is way too young. I feel so bad for her husband, children, and the rest of her family. My deepest sympathy is with them.
I also saw a Facebook post from my friend Darrell that his wife Diane had passed away today as well. Wow! That really hits close to home. She was young as well. Darrell, my brother, I know the pain of loss and the road you are now traveling, but I won’t even pretend to know how you feel because each relationship (and each loss) is different. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Well, folks, I’ll be back tomorrow. Maybe I’ll even do a funny (I hope) video this weekend. We shall see.
