This morning after crawling into bed at 4 pm last night and sleeping until this morning at 4am, waking to find 3 cats under my covers with me, surprise, the other at the foot of the bed, I went to feed them (the cats) the one can of cat food they get a day as a treat. I turned our crazy jack russells's electric blanket back on and then asked the husband why the car mechanic who is working on my truck called last night. I heard the phone, remember seeing his number light up and could not get up to ask, so asking found out my trucks cost has now gone into the $2000. area.
I lumbar back to the shower, as I am no longer in control of any of my muscles, I am that damn tired, and I talk myself through the shower, last day, last day, last day, and stepping out I start the rest of my routine.
I look down and there perfectly formed was a footprint by a little puddle of water from the shower, not my footprint, and yes I checked, but about a size 8 perfectly dainty footprint, next to but not in the water puddle from the shower. I sat down (yes on the toilet I was in the bathroom after all) and just stared at it and slowly I noticed a smile forming, not a happy, glad to see you smile, but more of an oh there you are kind of a smile....
I have, all my life, seemed to be being followed around by someone keeping me safe when I shouldn't have been, things that "tell" me, not through sound but through feelings, when not to do something, go somewhere, what to watch out for.
It was comforting this morning to know, to have been gently reminded, that I really am never alone, and everything will work out as it should.
I just felt I needed to share this as bad, hard times are coming and we all need something to hold tight too.
Looking for a picture to accompany this post led me to this article
