DAISY WAS TIRED ON THE WAY HOME! ME TOO!
I got back yesterday from my trip to Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, SC. It was wonderful getting to see my friends and family. Savannah, Georgia is where my Grandmother (Gaga) and Grandfather (Granddaddy) live. There is something so peaceful about visiting a place that never changes. My grandfather’s house was his father’s house. There is a little shed in the backyard that belonged to his father’s father before the bigger house was ever built! The backyard, swing, and lawn chair where my grandfather sits and plays with his dog are always in the same position. The hammock wrests against the porch awaiting a visitor. I direly wish there were someone to keep this place going in the future…that my grandfather had a son who wanted the honor of keeping up the house, its serenity, and story.
Charleston, SC is my hometown. The roads, restaurants, and radio stations are all familiar to me. I passed by places that I have had so many memories at. The same movie theatre, County Park, and Melvin’s still exists even though many new places have been built up around them. I did not realize how much I had missed familiarity. It was wonderful to see my best friends and yet hard to realize how much each one of us was struggling (in our own way). Someone once told me that if they won the lottery one of the first things they would do is take care of their best friend. I’ve never forgotten that they said that to me. Nor could I agree with them more. ❤
As much fun as I have been having blogging about DIY, colorful things, etc I feel that I am losing site as to why I started my blog to begin with. Muffins&Mocha is meant to be a place where people can come, get comfortable, and feel safe discussing all different types of issues. Though I sometimes reference my depression I do not post as many deep posts as I would like. I need to do this more. A friend also told me that I should blog about my mom. It’s a topic that I do not like writing about but maybe I should consider it. I read in my stress management book that the people who have the least amount of time in their day to de stress are the ones who need it most. I definitely feel I am one of those people!!
