Just When I Thought It Was Good

As usual I went and overspent at Christmas and now I'm paying the price. I'm not sure if it was the over spending on the kids, or that I was off of work for a week and a half w/no pay just before Christmas (due to sickness) or the fact that I made a New Year's resolution to be glad in all things, that has me in this predicament. It's probably a combination of the three.

Why does it seem like whenever you make a promise, you then get tested in that area?

I'm not talking a little bit of testing, but A LOT! The last few days I've felt like I'm beating my head against a brick wall. Every time I tried to do something, bam, nope, it wouldn't work out.

I would repeat, "Be glad in all things...and this too shall pass!"

But somehow it's easier said than done. On Monday I finally gave up before I broke down and did what I used to do in stressful times...took a nap. Sleep has always been my escape. I woke up and felt refreshed, I re-grouped and started all over again, trying to tackle the mountains in front of me.

Today's actually a little better, I will push through this and, "Be glad in ALL things," because I know that worrying wont change anything except maybe make me sick. Besides, everything always works out in the end. I just need to learn a lesson I guess.

Which is really what life's all about right? LEARNING & GROWING day by day!

Remember that I decided awhile ago, that it's better NOT to mention what you don't want to have happen, or what you're "determined to do," or that is exactly what the Lord gives you! Now it's not that I'm not trying to do and be better, I'm just trying to be really quiet about it. AND, the advantage to that, is that no-one knows you've broken your New Year's resolution (or other commitments) cuz they never knew about them in the first place----hee. I appreciate all that you share though because I know that it helps me try harder and want to be better. I'm just not telling anybody that that is what I'm doing!!! Honey, I love you. I'll keep the prayers going; for ALL of my family. Hang in there, and keep the faith. Love and Hugs, Mommy
