Head above water....

Yesterday someone called Mark left a comment for me.......Mark is really a multiple personality otherwise known as B&B, or Bagman and Butler (I like Baggy best because he is as naughty as I would like to be but am not anymore)...anyway, I digress

Mark left this little story in my comment box....

I am reminded of my rule for helping someone into a lifeboat: "You can never push someone into a lifeboat because it just makes your head go underwater. You can only pull someone into a lifeboat once you are securely in the lifeboat yourself with other people holding on to you."

Which led me to pondering today, about who is in my life boat holding onto me.....

You know what, and this may be silly to some, but a lot of my life boat people are reading this page and are probably you.....yes, you

And of course my Maryme.

And my Tahni and my Kayla too funnily enough.....

Hmmmmm........

I think last week I just fell in the water for a bit....

I'm out and dry now.

I didn't even realise I was drowning....is that what happens?

Oh yes it's very possible to be slowly drowning without realising it.

Swallow a bit more water ...and then thunderstruck you discover your predicament you might call out for help yourself.

I agree with BB ...you must be safe and secure in order to reach out to anyone.

You are ....doing an amazing job.

Bail out your own water now and then ...

As to your immune system ..

Dark chocolate.

Apple cider vinegar.

Echinacea.

And .... allow yourself to be loved.....maybe that English visitor could help?

Sorry I missed the near drowning. I was drowning myself at that particular time.

Love Renee xoxo

I love that little story . . so very true and apt!

I often feel like I'm drowning but happily I always feel like I'm being held onto at the same time . . strange but true. Glad you're on dry land right now.

Have a blessed week and try to keep your head above water!!
