Journal Entry

Journal Entry 1-23-10: A moment that took my breath away….

Yesterday morning, I was getting ready for the day. Part of me was already driving to San Diego in the pouring rain for my website training. Another part of me was thinking about the problem with Time Warner not receiving our December payment but getting and cashing another utility company’s check. Still another part was thinking about all I had to do for the houseful of company I was expecting the following day, and what was left of me was thinking about the following week wherein I was to report a hearing all day every day! It’s no wonder I went flying by my husband without really noticing him. As I passed him, I was stopped in my tracks like I had never been before. It was like his heart reached out to mine, and I felt, literally felt what he was feeling: IGNORED. I immediately turned around and said, “Honey, I don’t mean to ignore you and I’m really sorry if you’re feeling that way.” He walked back from our bedroom and stopped at the entrance of the bathroom. “That’s okay.” The look on his face was anything but okay. Suddenly, my internal faucet was turned on and I began to cry and become emotionally vulnerable with him in a way I had never experienced. “I just feel as thought I’m being pulled in so many directions right now,” I cried as I clutched the towel to my face. The next thing I knew, there he was. His arms wrapped around me. He held me with his arms and comforted me with his words: “You’re just walking through a new door, Honey, and when you learn all of this stuff, things will settle down for you.” I let myself cry some more as I stayed in his embrace. Eventually, my sobs subsided while my heart filled up with love for him. It was such a powerful moment, one that felt like I had fallen in love with him all over again, one that I had to share with you……

    Well, this is like a secret look at someone’s diary — old word for journal — and I never have cheated and looked at a diary that belonged to someone else. It’s a no no, always. So thanks for the “peek.”

    Lee,
    Yes, you could say that that was a bit transparent, but I’m thinkin’ that to be transparent reduces the risk of becoming something we’re not:)
    Be blessed and thank you for taking the time to comment!
