Not sure what I'm posting for .... nothing really important.

I'm just feel rather old right now and sorta out of sorts. I am worried about 2 of my sons, one needs surgery and no insurance, the other is under employed and I'm sending him food, as he "makes to MUCH money" to qualify for assistance! Only in America can you be trying to do the right thing and no one can help when you need a hand... my mom's health is rather steady... but she will be 80 this year...I already help her with things, so she won't have to. My knees are giving me trouble, and my job is mind numbing....I so want to retire!.....I'm pushing 60 and rather feeling it a lot on my plate that is running through my mind......PLUS it is winter and cold outside and I just want to be in my garden.

I feel like I'm stuck in a rut and not very motivated at the moment. I know things will change they always do.... just right now there is not a lot to .... get me excited.

Don't worry to much folks, just me feeling old and not happy about it... I do think winter and the dreary days do not help much .... at least the sun is shinning today... That helps me remember spring is not far behind.

Thank you to all my Spark friends for brightening my day, making me smile, motivating me, making me cry AND laugh!

Chin up and thank God that I get to see another of His beautiful days....even if it is SNOW!

    No matter how old our kids get ....... they are always our babies, aren't they ........ and we hate to see them hurt & not have things just right ......... (That's a Mom) .......... I used to live in snow country, and I do remember how old the cold got .......... (here it is gray and gloomy) ........... emoticon and the sun popped out for a 'whole hour' today and I rushed home to wash my car ......... (of course, then it was back to gray and gloom but I did it anyway) ...... Hope those blue skies come shining thru soon ........... It just seems to make things better ........... sunshine and birds singing (and of course your beautiful garden!) ............. emoticon

    Sounds like you have a bad case of SAD...Seasonal Affective Disorder! The constant snow, cold, reduced sun-light...all those things that make it impossible for you to grow your garden, make it tough for all of us to function optimally. Add the worries about your sons & a mind-numbing job...well...

    I have no suggestions...only know that you are heard & understood. And soon, all this snow & cold will move on & sunshine will get you back in your garden.

    I call that being in a funk. For me, the best thing I can do is give my worries and anxieties to the one who actually want to take them away for me (God though prayer). Concentrating and meeting my goals is great encouragement to help remind me to stay the course in healthy eating. Hope you work your way through this set of predicaments well. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    Ok, we won't worry... much. ;-)

    I love, love, love your birds in winter background. I voted you first on the January Sparkpage competition as it happens. :-)

    I know how you feel. Winter, and grey days, can sometimes really drag on and on, and snow, while quite beautiful and appealing at first, becomes a sludgy icy mess that is a total nuisance within days.

    It can drag your mood down, no matter how chirpy (pun intended) you normally are.

    I really hope your weather lets up soon, and spring, which is literally around the corner according to the Groundhog, puts a smile on your face.
