This is Fruitycake. It sure is nice being where you know people. I’ve never had people that I’ve known or met more than a few times. I’ve never felt like I belonged to a family. And it’s so nice. I like knowing others. I like when they know me too.
There are so many individuals to get to know here at where Girl Person grew up. There are not just people but all kinds of animals. It’s a lot to take in. I’m not sure how to feel when I’m happy but also overwhelmed. Have you ever felt like that? Maybe a little moody? Because you are feeling so many things?
Girl Person says that she feels like that right now too. She says she’s glad to be here. But sometimes when the memories come and you don’t expect them, they can knock you down. She said that the memories aren’t always bad. Just overwhelming.
Girl Person says in some ways, travel helps her run from emotions. But sometimes, you have to face them. And be a little moody if you have to be.
I have a new cow friend that I talk to each night. I’m not sure how I feel about his choice of expression and the way he sticks his tongue out at me. I’m not sure how he feels about me grumbling at him either.
But since I’m getting to know him and all my family, I’ll just accept the moodiness we both have. Because it takes work to build friendships. It takes work to keep family. Anything worth it takes work.
So when others are moody, realize that it may not be about you.
We all are trying to fit in and to love and live. It’s harder some days than others. But it sure is worth the effort. For all of us.
