magnolia.

I had a nice little post all ready to share for this fine Friday.
But I'm just not feeling it today...not even this week... And I'm not going to attempt to fake it today. I don't have the energy. And you fine friends of mine deserve more than me faking it. I'm tired, I'm stressed, I'm worried, I'm questioning. And all I really care about is making it through the day so I can rest in the comfort of my retreat when I feel this way - which is my bed. Sleep is my escape. And if I could, right now, I'd sleep this whole weekend away. Far, far away.
But that's not an option.
So, I will have to make do with the little things. Like this song, Magnolia, by Ellie Holcomb. Seems that I always find a little solace in the craziest of places (I was on iTunes downloading a Lady GaGa song for my son), just when I need it. And I can usually find a song to sum-up just how I'm feeling on any given day. This song says it all today.

Enjoy your weekend, friends.

I love Gaga and I love that your son likes her!

I hope you end up having a peaceful weekend.:)

A quote that has helped me...
"Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are cause by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence" ~Eckhart Tolle from The Power of Now

Sending a big hug to you. Sometimes it's best to retreat for awhile and take stock of your feelings. And I love that entire Holcomb album by the way. I have several of their albums...all good!
