Tell someone you love them today

Monday, December 17, 2012

For everyone that knows me, knows that I'm NOT big on blogging but I just wanted to say to everyone out there. You are NOT ALONE!! No matter how you feel or how bad it gets someone is there, someone LOVES YOU!!

I have found this season is reminding us of HOW Grateful we should be for all we have & for everyone we have. I am truly THANKFUL but I'm finding it SO HARD to smile these days. I know some people think, WHY?? If you are so thankful how can you NOT SMILE? My heart is breaking for so many others out there & no matter how happy I am it is so hard when you are heart broken! I look at my family and cry; not out of sadness but out of love. We have had some issues around here that I never would wish on anyone. I hurt for so many others, my daughter watching as she finds out about a classmate SHOT down. People say, "he was in the wrong place at the wrong time". Then Friday emoticon

I don't like having to explain to my kids. What happened to kids dealing with teen problems like 'who's my boyfriend this week' or 'what am I going to wear?' I can't stop crying & I don't want to go back to where I was last year. I tend to shut down but like my last blog said, "I refuse!" I refuse to go back, I refuse to stop living, I refuse to put my kids in a bubble (no matter HOW BAD I WOULD LIKE TO). We will continue to live! We are waiting for that glorious day when the LORD comes back for us but until then I will find my smile. I will let HIS LIGHT shine through me NO MATTER How hard it is.
One FOOT in front of the other. I WILL DO THIS!

    It is so tempting to just give up sometimes when we have so much stress and worry. I have had the same thoughts too over the weekend, but I know most of the time being thinner makes me feel good so I will keep going. Gaining the weight back or losing our good habits would just make us feel worse!

I hope you feel better soon and things become more normal for you. With teenagers that's hard to define sometimes!

    Sometimes it's so hard to find the strength to smile when there is so much turmoil around us. Stay positive for yourself and your family and know you are loved!! emoticon
