76 is the high today in Denver. Another amazing day.
Please pray (however you do, for those affected near Fort Collins. Such a devastating fire.
I have a good friend visiting in Denver. She was in Boulder visiting her children. She came to Denver to meet me at my house. In the past I have always let her rule our plans…..I am easy going that way. Of late? I am really sick of it.
She needed to go to Castle Rock to drop some belongings off I have moved for her across the country. Then she wanted to go to the outlets. Back in the day….I would have been all over it.
But I had just come from visiting my Dad. And I promised him I would visit later and he said he would love to see my friend.
So….she was annoyed I wanted to come home and chill for a few on my patio. Then I needed to shower. She said she was bored and wanted me to forgo my shower. I thought a better idea than the outlets was just taking a nice walk around Cherry Creek. She thought I meant the mall. I did not.
She clearly left irritated to go to Castle Rock alone. She said that as I did not want to go to the outlets she had no desire to visit my father. That is clearly screwed up. She has known my parents for almost 30 years.
She has not experienced the illnesses that I have with both my parents. And Godbless her Mom is a cancer survivor. She is just different than me. She easily gives opinions but does not easily accept other opinions. I have another long term friend who is the same way. I believe covered in a soft pale silk that masks reality.
I am raw. I see reality for what it is and work every day to take one step forward. These days, I am blessed with leaps and bounds in many directions.
But I am lover, and a maker of mistakes, hopefully much wiser, and I am saddened about the judgement that lives in this world. And I am happy I have found a path that is honest, heartfelt, and true to myself.
I am so grateful for all of the ‘mini-miracles- I experience every day.
Perhaps the notion that people are brought into your life for a reason, a short period of time, to touch each other and leave a positive truth, is all we can hope for.
Happy June 11.
