Today was filled with visits from and to friends and was a very good day because of that. I laughed a lot, got out in the sun (with sun block, of course!), picked veggies in a garden and had a wonderful time playing with kids, including my own!

It was so wonderful, like something from a movie, and yet that stomach-turning anxiety still managed to creep in from time to time. But I have a plan to deal with that, so for now, I plan to focus on the joy, laughter and friendship as much as possible.

And now, I’m heading to bed, actually sleepy for once, hours before I usually do. Here’s hoping that sleep finds me before irrational fear does.
