Lately, I have been a little frazzled...well, ok, a lot frazzled. I have some major stressors in my life at the moment and most days I just want to go to my bedroom and crawl into bed and hide, but I can't. There are people counting on me to get up and function as a human being. Darned responsibilities!
I have been dreaming of a stress free life. Literally, I have dreams of sitting on a dock, the sun streaming down on me, and my toes dangling in cool water.
And yes, in all of these dreams, I am THIN and either wearing a vintage bikini or shorts and a cute midriff shirt.
I also dream of escaping to a serene cabin deep into the mountains, far from civilization. I think I just want to run away and hide from everyone and everything.
I yearn for a simple life with peace and tranquility. I pray for it, wish for it, and dream of it.
Will I get it? No time soon, I'm sure, because I am a working woman, a mother of six, a grandmother of soon to be eight, and have a father with a terminal illness. But a girl can dream, can't she?
