I just need to be "Carol" - not wife, mother, daughter, grandmother - just "Carol". Do you know what I mean?
Today is one of those days of awareness. I need to just be me - all day - going to church alone - in my studio alone - happy alone. It is a gift and I am going to bask in it for today. The world out there is going to have to get along without me for today. And I know it will do fine - probably even prosper.
As will I.
