Long Week

It has been a long week. A long, uneven, eventful week.

A close friend got her dream job – she is going to be a full time employee at Disney Studios, which is what she has wanted for as long as I’ve known her. She got this job through nothing short of hard work and being unrelentingly optimistic, and she has earned it, all by herself. I am so proud of her I can’t see straight.

An old friend from college passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly. Life has a way of reminding us how very fragile it is. I hadn’t seen him for 4 years, and through a random series of events we were able to catch up this past June. I had no idea it was the last time I would ever see him. I found out he died on Facebook, which has left me wondering yet again if my relationship with Facebook is a love or hate one.

A very close family member went into the hospital. The status of this is still pending so that’s all I can write for now.

Another close family member’s wife gave birth to their first child. Mother and daughter are both healthy and beautiful. Life has a way of reminding us how truly miraculous it can be.

As I said, it has been a long week. Sometimes we have good weeks. Others, are bad. And then there are weeks that leave us speechless, not sure whether to rejoice or cry, and feeling guilty for doing either. I wish that I had a silly video or photo to post, but right now this is all I have. Thanks for reading and spending a few minutes of your week with me.

  3. Caroline, you and Adrianna have made me laugh for so long on A Cozy Kitchen and now here – and as a fellow blogger, I know how hard it can be to keep up the bright side of things 100% of the time. Thanks for feeling comfortable talking about all of this on a good-and-bad week, and I’m so sorry to hear about your friend – but also glad that life has provided you with some truly bright spots in what could have been only an incredibly tough week. Hang in there. x

  4. Weeks like the one you are having are numbing. You’ll get through it because you are strong and you seem to have people around who love you. I hope things brighten up soon. I’m new to your blog and I look forward to knowing you more and all of your future post. Be strong and thing of the good in your life.

    xo,
