Writing and Therapy

This pen, another one from my collection, is great for writing.  It's a "Wellness" pen.  It even has it written on the pen.

The ink contains a fragrance that is pleasant and said to create a "wellness" overall feeling, when you write. 

....there has been a lot of writing going on in this home lately.   Two of us in particular.

Money.  Have too much, and it can get out of control and cause you to lose focus.  Don't have enough, and it forces you to make unwanted, aching sacrifices.

  To feel so powerless to prevent certain things from happening, can be a tremendously emotional roller coaster.  Especially when it involves your own children.

It becomes extraordinarily stressful and very overwhelming. 

Helplessness shattering sense that nothing will be the same.  Headaches, heartaches, stomach pains.  Asking God why did it have to be this way.......

Parenting is enormously complicated, and raw.

......more later.

Oh dear, has your horse hurt it's foot? I hope he/she is going to be ok...

Hi Emma,
When she arrived here in January, she had a bad gash. It's still not healing. It will look good one day and bad the next. However, the bad news, is that someone is buying her now.

I'm sorry you had to let the horse go. It's never easy. I was very sad when we had to sell the miniature donkeys last year but it was just too expensive to feed them.
