When I awoke this morning, my little corner of the world was wrapped in a soft blanket of mist. The air felt soft, and all the sounds of the day were muffled slightly by it. It was as though somehow, the day knew that I needed to be wrapped in cotton wool today, to be gentled.

And even though I have had news which is more good than bad, thankfully, I do still feel like I need gentling. I am thankful becuase I still have a job, which is much better news than some of my colleagues will have received. But it is half of the hours I had asked for, and not at a library I had asked for. But it is a job, a chance, an opportunity. Even better, I can continue my secondment.

So although I feel mainly relieved, I feel a bit shaky too. There is hope glistening away in the shimmering half light, which is what I am going to hold on to.

I plan to work not too late today, go home and have a quiet hour before visiting friends. I have a card on my desk which says ‘All Shall Be Well, And All Shall Be Well, And All Manner Of Things Shall Be Well’ flanked by a smooth pebble from Aldeburgh beach and a smaller stone from the same beach, with a hole straight through it. These are my points of reference to stay grounded and when I feel stressed, I try to hold them and think positively.

I think of this blog as a kind of patchwork blanket where I weave the thread of my days. I don’t know what colour these past few weeks would be, but I know I am grateful to have this space to weave them, just the same.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and words these past few weeks, Love Mimi xxx


One thought on “News…

  1. Not bad news, but not what you had hoped for. I do wish you'd gotten all you wished for, but life very rarely gives us that, though when it does it is glorious. So, you will deal with this phase and make the best of it, and even find the joy daily. And in so doing, be a light to others.And in time, life shall change. Again and again it will change.Just keep trusting and believing that the Almighty One is in control and has a plan for your life and that it is beautiful and perfect, designed especially for you.As the serenity prayer implies, change what you can, accept what you can't, and pray for the wisdom to know the difference.
