Happy April

So many things have happen in March- I am looking forward to a slower April in regards to my personal life.

My husband went into the hospital for pneumonia for 4 days and going to dialysis 3 times a week (this is manageable for me- my normal- his normal). My mom is currently in the hospital to treat a major infection that is damaging her heart. I am still recovering from my thyroid surgery- even though this happen late February. My sister has CANCER -Hodgkins Lymphoma- chemo will begin this month. My brother in law is in the hospital for possible kidney damage due to diabetes. My cat has hurt his back leg.

I really think I am ready for a slower April. An April with lots of healing. An April that all my loved ones are healing and healthy. Me included.

One cannot rest in the hospital and one cannot rest at home while someone they love is in the hospital (or in the bed next to you if they are ill- or in the next room- or on the other side of the country) but you do get a bit more rest when at home.

I have not set up my Origami Owl display at any events for the past 3 weekends. I have canceled coffee dates with friends. I want to hang out and be fun and happy – just can’t find it in me right now.

I have a small team of designers who I want to see succeed and I am sending them messages and positive training but I know it’s not the same as being ‘present’. My Origami Owl business has suffered and I am not THAT disappointed because I know I will get back into it when the time is right- I still share the newest products and will continue to do so- just not so much as I have been doing. My family comes first and Origami Owl will be here for me.

This little blurb of a blog has helped me a bit, this is the first of its kind – just putting stuff on the screen for all to read but also getting out of my soul.

Thank you for reading.

As always-

Happy Creating,
