Yesterday I spent down in the dirt so today was a rest day. Altogether a nice day. I still hate the time change and it will take me at least a week to adjust. I got up at my usuall time although it was an hour early. That is the only way I know to adjust.
Lately I have found myself prone to tears. I seem to weep at anything. It is not depressions but almost an acknowledgement of the sadness I feel for others. Being sensitive to other’s trials and pains is sometimes a difficult road. It does reduce me to tears on occasion and lately more than usual. That is probably because I am seeing more pain around me. Not just those I know but in the world at large.
As an elder I worry about the world that will be here for my grandchildren and great grandchildren. I hope that some of the abuses, anger, going too far in many things will swing back to reason. We have pushed the limit on so many things. Here in the US sexuality has become such an issue. Why do we have to be so concerned about the private lives of others.
Admittedly we see too much on media that is painful and disturbing. I have to turn some of it off for self preservation. Sometimes there is enough to handle in your own space, Many are in overload and it is no wonder that depression and anxiety are rising. A friend of my grandson spent the first semester of his college term not attending classes and obsessing. He has threatened suicide and his parents and having trouble finding appropriate care.
Life today is not easy. As I have said before it seemed easier when I was growing. Was I living in a bubble or was it really easier?
Anyway that is just my train of thought for today. Hope everyone had a good day!

Something you wrote, stood out and resonated with me, “was I living in a bubble” – growing up I thought it was easier, simpler but I wasn’t “awake” or “see” the truth of what was going on as I do now. We all need to change in order for this world to be a more loving place for our children/grandchildren. Enjoy your week ahead. ~ Bernice

Bless you for your caring heart! The world can be overwhelming, and it doesn’t help the hurting to tell them to cheer up, get over it. Scripture tell us to “mourn with those who mourn,” and having someone cry with you is strangely comforting. At the same time, don’t underestimate the power of prayer.
Great post! Love the second paragraph for sure!!!
