Strange how so much life goes on around me … I didn’t see, hear it for focusing on Skip … for the past 5 months I’ve lived in fear for him. Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee … as a younger woman. Sitting and thinking ……………
I have been sitting quietly … sensing, feeling out my world around me … by listening, seeing. I can hardly believe all is calm … when the past 5 months have been in such turmoil.
For the moment, my mind feels at peace. Gracious, what a nice feeling … I had forgotten how it felt. It’s strange when one’s life is in turmoil … they focus only on what’s at hand. No time to relax, feel at ease … only a driving fear. At least … for me, that’s how it’s been.
It sure feels good to feel good. I got to do something yesterday I didn’t get to think I would do … play in some garden soil. I added beautiful, black soil to the several potted plants on the porch, and to one big cherry tomato plant I have. It sounds like nothing, I know … to me, it felt wonderful to stop … ‘smell the roses’ so to speak.
My hands were dirty … my skin warm from the sunshine … the breeze felt good. My mind was at peace while listening to the birds, the distant drone of an airplane … someone mowing grass … I even heard children squeal in laughter. These are happy sounds … I had forgotten they existed. Isn’t that amazing?

This morning I am sitting … thinking about how much I have to be grateful for … I don’t think a day goes by without me feeling grateful for all in my life. No matter how bad it got … good things happened.
