Ebb and Flow......

Finding balance in our lives, as the seasons change.
Our leaves are turning, bright oranges, reds, and gold.

Bright yellow mums liven up my fall garden.



And lavender ones for calmness.

I am feeling more balanced in my life now.
Hubby is feeling well. There are no new symptoms to worry about.
My blogger friends have given me good advice.....
It is a mind-set that's beginning to work.....
Bringing me more peace, less worry, less frustration...
And I think Hubby is feeling this new peaceful me.
Healing us both.

UPDATE: It's Blooming Tuesday at Jean's blog. A day to show what's blooming in our gardens.

What a wonderful late night news your post is! I am so glad for you and you really sound calmer and stronger even in the comments about your OH.

Lots of hugs for both of you

Wendy, a delightful fall post. Just gorgeous colors the leaves are and of course the mums say autumn don't they? You do sound calmer-an inner peace showing through in your writing. I wish you well and balance in your life.

Wendy said...

Thank you Rose. I do love to watch the leaves turn colours in the fall. And I will enjoy this precious time.

Thank you Carin - lots of hugs back.

Thank you Beckie for your kind words.

Lovely fall colors in your garden. I find the garden helps destress me from my day to day worries. It's hard caring for someone who is ill. My son is emotionally ill and it's a struggle everyday. My heart goes out to you.

Wendy said...

Thanks Jean - I am sure Hubby feels it. You are right.

Hi Perennialgardener, thank you for your kind words. Gardening is so soothing. I am sorry you are having to deal with an emotional illness. It's so difficult.

Welcome to Bloomin' Tuesday! It is so nice to meet new garden lovers! The colors of your mums are lovely and I can't wait for the leaves to all turn. Great post! Jean

Hi Wendy, Blooming Tuesday was fun. I am so glad you are finding peace in your life today. Quite an accomplishment. I finally shared a bit of my life in the blog before bloomin tue. The words finally came to me on how to share in a positive way. Or I hope it was. I so wish my hubby was as responsive as yours. His depression is hard to concur. He chooses not to speak much.

Hi Wendy, I love the leaves turning in fall. Here in So Cal we miss that and don't get to enjoy it! I love your mums. A favorite fall flower that is so colorful and it looks great in your yard. This is my first visit to your blog. Glad to meet you on Blooming Tuesday!
Love, Ann

A lovely peaceful post, Wendy. I do enjoy seeing your colorful changes of Fall. Our Fall in the south is much later and more muted than yours. So happy Hubby is doing well.

((Hugs))

How pretty is all your flowers.

Finding balance is best way to go on the middle of the road if there not to much traffic out.

Coffee is on.

Your photos are lovely, and your post is, as well. I'm so glad that you are more at peace. This does carry over, doesn't it, to those around us.
