Today is a public holiday here in Namibia: Independence Day
And this is how I spent the holiday:
Going to my favorite cafe: THE TEAPOT in Ferreiras Nursery
I had the health muffins, but as the service was a bit slow today, when the muffins arrived I already had two cappuccino and I was full.
We took the muffins home in a ‘doggy bag’ and my son ate it in the afternoon, while I was visiting a dear friend.
Whenever we go the this cafe inside the nursery, I buy a flowering pot plant to set aside on the side board for Matthias
Coming back to a dear friend.
I haven’t seen my friend Manuela in a few month. Shortly after Matthias died, I wasn’t able to face a few people in my life, but today I had the impulse to call her and ask her if I could come by for coffee. She is actually living around the corner from where I stay, but I hadn’t the energy or strength to see her, as I was too busy with my own problems and coping with the trauma of losing a child and couldn’t stand to listen to somebody else problems.
Today I felt drawn to her and found the strength to face her again. Felt strong enough to listen to her problems and ups and downs in life and felt good to be there for her. And I am glad I did. We talked for hours and if she wouldn’t have to pick up her son I guess I would still be sitting there.
But as I said, she is just living around the corner and I am sure that we will see each other more often from now on.
Thank you Manuela for understanding my absence, even if we didn’t talk about it at all, but we chatted away immediately as if we have never been apart for month’.
I am glad I can face life and all ups and downs again and be of help just by listening to other people’s concerns.
Without getting treated by Neuro Balance, I wouldn’t be so far now and I am grateful to have done it, even it was quiet expensive, but it is worse every cent.
Have a great weekend (guess I can wish this already, as tomorrow is Friday)
and lots of love and light to all of you.
