Barricades

Sometimes when we have to face issues in our lives, we put up barricades. It makes it easier. No conflicts. No drama. Just forget about it. Throw it under the rug. If we don’t see it, it will go away. We don’t call this person, we have no communication at all. If they try to communicate, we just ignore them. They don’t exist.

Webster’s definition of barricade is “obstruction or rampart thrown up across a way or passage to check the advance of the enemy.” We think this barricade is the answer to our problems, but it isn’t.

The person we are barricading is not the enemy. It is someone who loves us. They will never go away. They will always be a part of your life. Work it out. Let them in. Drop the barricade.

I am a legal assistant in our county attorneys office due to retire in February of 2022. My husband Scott Bishop passed away in November of 2013. After he passed when I wasn’t working, I would Quilt. Sometimes I even took a vacation day just to continue working on one. I love quilting and plan to quilt a lot more after retirement. 🙂
