She reminded me she had lost her daddy when I lost my husband
I was complaining about all the heat we had in St. Petersburg, and my daughter must have been tired of hearing it. She told me I chose to live in St. Petersburg, FL and if I didn’t like it I should move. I didn’t say I wanted to move. All I said was that I wished summer were over and we could turn off the air conditioning. She laughed. When she reminded I had the air conditioning running whether or not I needed it, I got upset. I didn’t know I complained so much. She told me about all the things there was to do, and then she asked why I never went to the parks anymore. I loved going to the botanical gardens, and the small nature parks that were in the area. After my husband passed, I quit going to all the different areas I used to love when my husband was with me. It wasn’t as much fun as it once was. My daughter reminded me that St. Petersburg, FL offers more than just heat, and I only shrugged. She grabbed my shoulders and looked me in the eye. She reminded me she was still there, and she would go with me if I only asked. She also enjoyed the botanical gardens, and the small parks in the area. She reminded me she had lost her daddy when I lost my husband. We are planning to go to the botanical gardens over the weekend, and I am finally excited to go. I just had to get a proverbial kick in the butt to get out of the slumps and back to enjoying where I live.
