How is it possible that one encounter in the grocery store could ruin an otherwise pleasant day?
I saw him walking towards me and my stomach twisted. He smiled. I really don’t know what look was on my face, probably the deer in the headlight expression. His son following behind him. I’d never met his son and from the nonverbal communication he was sending me I wouldn’t be meeting him today either.
I walked away feeling invisible, worthless, stupid, used, hurt, and numb. It took every bit of strength I had to drive the twenty minutes home. As I finished bringing the groceries in and shut the door, the tears began to flow. They have yet to stop and I’ve been home over an hour now. Morriss is so sweet, he’s sitting on the couch next to me and not bothering me about forgetting to feed him.
Please God heal my heart. . .
Today I’m grateful for:
1. I have fruit to eat.
2. I had a nice day until the grocery store.
3. I had a nice nap this afternoon
