Gonna go out to the garden & eat worms

Sunday, May 12, 2013

I'm feeling a bit bummed today.

We have a friend whose wife has 4th stage cancer and is nearing the end of her journey here on earth. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about it, then tossed and turned for an hour or so. When I finally went back to sleep, my dreams were not good.

Then, with today being Mother's day, I'm feeling a bit ticked because of all the stuff that's happened that's turned my family up-side-down to the point that we have been totally disconnected for more than a year. That's not the kind of person that I am. Life is too short and I've always been the one to do whatever needs to be done to 'heal' the relationship so we can at least be on civil terms. But it isn't happening this time.

So, I guess that kinda set the stage for the rest of the day. It's been one thing after another.

I am so truly thankful for all the blessings in my life. But today's just one of those days when I just want to go out to the garden and eat worms.

    If you're going to eat worms, clean them. They're full of soil, gritty stuff.

    My mother used to say that.

At my age I have weathered many tough times, and hard as it may be to live through, they do pass. God is always my greatest support.

    The Bible does say that we go through mountains and valleys in our life and that we need to put the Lord Jesus in command of all our life.

    They say we need to experience the lows to appreciate the highs in life, but, wow. You do have it rough right now.

I hope things turn around for you soon!

If you eat the worms, they're a good source of protein. Real ones -- not the ones in your picture.

    Don't eat any worms - you are not a fish or a robin. Besides, how do you track worms?!?

I understand some of what you are going through. My mom's family has more or less cut me off after my divorce (my one aunt sided with my ex). It is so hard but we will make it through.
