Last week I was involved in an unfortunate incident. Nothing too serious as no one was really injured, but still really scary. Emotionally and mentally, I’m still recovering, and trying desperately to get back into the swing of things. I’m so very grateful for all the kind comments here and the good thoughts, and can’t tell you how much they mean to me.
But, even more so, I can’t express my gratitude to the kind souls who helped out at the time enough. Everyone was helpful and supportive and I couldn’t have made it through the day without them.
At a time when people would rather walk on by as fast as possible, the fact that so many people rushed to help and support me brought me to my knees. They were the strength and anchors I needed until my husband was able to be with me. They are proof there is still goodness in humanity when the world is full of people who would attack and kill each other. There is still something beautiful, and my heart is full of thankfulness and gratitude.
There is still beauty in this world, and I hope I have the opportunity to do the same for someone else one day, to show my children how to be kind, generous, and helpful in their community, to offer a hand to someone who needs it, to be there for others, to be a source of comfort and strength.
Thank you so much to those who have helped me, and a thank you to those to choose to help others instead of walking by.
In other news, I’m working hard to get back to normal, to get this blog back up and going. I anticipate it’ll be a a bit touch and go for a while, but I’m looking forward to getting back into my routines and schedules as they’re the only things that really hold my family together. It’s been a tough week, but will hopefully get easier.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting a motherhood post, part 13 in my Finding Magic in Motherhood series. Wednesday will see the long awaited part 20 in my Queen of the Garden of Girls ongoing story. Look for a book review for The Killing Fog by Jeff Wheeler on Thursday, especially if you enjoy Asian-inspired fantasy novels (this one is specifically Chinese-inspired). On Friday I hope to have the recipe I had planned to post last Friday.
I posted a couple of book reviews this past weekend, so, if you haven’t a chance to yet, please check out my reviews of, and maybe pick up, The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold and BloodStained Bliss by Elle Limpkin. The first is a mix of fantasy and mystery and the second is a mix of science fiction and mystery, so great options if you’re looking for a mystery!
Outside of my blog, I hope to be able to get to read more blogs and get back into the swing of commenting. There are so many I have to catch up on, but I look forward to reading it all!
All the best, and have a great week!
