Most days something happens and I don’t really know what I should do, but slowly I am inching forward, making decisions. I notice even buying groceries is hard. I bought what Larry liked. Most of the stuff I didn’t even like. Our world revolved around what he wanted to do, to eat. He picked what we watched on tv. I am now choosing, buying what I like to eat (very little meat), watching what I want to watch. Yesterday, I voted for who and what I wanted. I am taking little steps. I’m thinking about the future without crying!
In difficult times, you move forward in small steps.
Do what you have to do, but little by little.
Don't think about the future, or what may happen tomorrow.
Wash the dishes.
Remove the dust.
Write a letter.
Make a soup.
You are advancing step by step.
Take a step and stop.
Rest a little.
Take another step.
You won't notice, but your steps will grow more and more.
And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying

Astrid works all day today so she asked me to let her Corgis out around noon to go to the bathroom. I took photos of all her pretty flowers. Inside her house is just as beautiful.
A friend driving down the road to my house asked Laura how I found such a wonderful renter—Laura said—she raised her!!❤️❤️

Astrid and Logan’s latest project is a table. They accented the pine with wood burning. They’re making two benches that will slide under each side. Pop would be happy that Astrid is using his tools The table is a wedding gift for a friend.
