***Hello Monday is where I greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective. It’s a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for! Join me by leaving your own hellos in the comments section or linking up a hello monday post there!***

Hello friends! I’ve been working through some feelings of anxiety and sadness. I think it’s been hard for me to get back into the swing of things after the holidays and processing some upcoming tests and possible surgery for David. I just feel blue and teary! So I’m trying to do things to care for my soul while I let myself grieve a bit.

How about some hellos?

Hello bracelet that reminds me to greet each day and each circumstance with an open heart.

Hello sunshine and blue skies.

Hello making a doable to-do list to try to keep myself from getting overwhelmed.
