Embraced

We just returned from Ireland.  What an incredible place. It’s old there. I felt like it had embraced me; us.  You know that part of you that makes you feel as if you belong there? It’s a special place; mystical I think. 

Believe it or not, we stayed in places where there was no internet or television! We took the doggies with us; they loved it. 

But today, for the first time, it feels like summer here in Swansea. Yesterday I think the temperature came nearer to 80° warmer than I’ve ever seen it here. 

Everything is green there in Ireland.  Everything. And blooming just like here. 

 It feels healing and I think days like today helps prepares one for the winter’s in Wales where it seems to nearly rain for nine months straight.  

It’s been almost six weeks until my fixed term ended at my job. I worked for six months straight even though it seemed like only weeks. 

I had never worked a temporary job before. The separation was more difficult than I thought. 

But it seems the difficulty wasn’t so much as the job itself; I guess it’s the people there that I miss much more. 

I miss that connection. It was a place where I felt accepted and embraced. 

Thank you for reading.
