Time away…it is good for the SOUL.

I was in need of time away.

The drama of Daly City got to me and I knew what I needed.

In everyone’s life there is THAT person..the one who GETS YOU…..

the one who LOVES YOU when no one else does….

I needed to go see my Aunt.

She is LOVE to me

She is unconditional support

She is what I really needed

 

 

 

 

 

It was one of the BEST trips I have been on…

by myself………

for myself……..

to rediscover myself

The train ride ALONE was good for me.  Six hours of SOLITUDE!!!!

Quiet, no hassles, no stress……..I will do that again

 

When I got off the train and saw My Aunt……..I cried……happy tears…….miss you tears…….tears of LOVE.

NOT!!!!!!!!!!!

 

We talked….We shared…..

We hugged….We walked…..

We shopped…..

It was JUST what I needed…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I brought a bottle of my favorite wine with me.

My Aunt does not drink…..

She offered me a glass of wine the next day at 12:30 in the afternoon

I told her after 5:00 is more the norm for those of us who drink

We laughed…….

We laughed harder when the only corkscrew she had (from the 1950’s I believe) snapped off in the wine bottle 

My Uncle used an ice pick and needle nose pliers to open the bottle

but I DID have my glass of wine at 7:30 instead of 12:30 🙂

I cherished my time away and spent REAL time taking care of ME which is something that is always LAST on my list

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I highly recommend time for yourself every once in a while…..THANK YOU AUNT M!!!!!! XOXOXOXOXOXOOX
