May 11, 2018: Hopeful

I visited my grandfather today, after work. He said that he was moved from another floor earlier that day, and the swelling on his feet seemed to be returning. He’s hopeful to get discharged tomorrow though. Hopefully that will happen.

Tomorrow I’ll be visiting my close friend in the hospital. Her health has taken a turn for worse. I’m looking forward to spending some time with her.

I’m hopeful to finally finish ‘Girl on the Train’ this weekend. I really want to read the Book of the Month selections I’ve receivedthese past couple months.

May 10, 2018: Day of Ascension

After work Andy and I may go to church to fulfill our day of obligation for Ascension Day. While we’re there, I’m going to leave special prayers for the special people in my life who are enduring such difficulties. It seems like rough events pile on one after another. My grandfather is still in the hospital for his asthma. My dear friend in the poetry therapy community is also being hospitalized, due to an aggressive form of cancer. Amazingly, I move about my day like usual, yet my thoughts are with them always. I hope to visit both people on Saturday.

May 3, 2018: An Introverted Post

It’s very difficult being an introverted person. A positive to having a quiet personality is that you remove yourself from any type of drama by keeping to yourself. At work I just keep to my room while everyone else gossips and wraps themselves in drama. I want nothing to do with any of that. The negative part is that people believe that your quiet personality means that you’re unapproachable, nasty, that you can’t be spoken to about anything.

I could never figure that out. I speak to my co-workers every morning; I say hello, ask how they’re doing, just a few words before I move on to my room for the day. It’s not in my nature to be talkative and loud, and after 40 years in this life, it never will be. Yet people have an aversion to being quiet. I just need to keep living my life, and stay thankful that I have connections whom I can truly connect with.
