Weekend Recap

Leaving was a bittersweet feeling. The culmination of a much needed weekend away from normal, I'd been looking forward to the beginning and dreading the end. Someone said that once you break through the clouds there is sun, and there is. At first there is just a soft orange glow, but moments later you break the barrier and you're greeted with bright sun bouncing off soft white billows of cumulus. The discussion related to flying on a rainy day, but it's beautiful metaphor for life as well.

Fortunately, I was able to get plenty of time for reflection on the way home. In my mind there are profound things to say and flowery words to be written but tonight I will simply run down a list. 

1. I speak too softly apparently. There was a time when I used to speak loudly. I wanted to be noticed and never felt I could be any other way. Somehow I think I've traveled to the other end of the spectrum. 

2. If I am not given a pointed question I will just ramble. There are ways to fix this... 

3. It's a warm feeling to turn around and see someone is there watching you to make sure you are alright. 

4. It's difficult not to go to that person and hug them. 

5. I have an unbearable need to make people feel better and when I can't I get frustrated. There's got to be a better way. I can't apologize for caring, but I will apologize for how it effected my mood.
