Thank You

Thursday, June 06, 2013

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of my Spark Friends you reached out to me yesterday when I was having a bad day. You sent hugs and well wishes and messages to cheer me up and that in itself made me feel so much better. I could feel the hugs and they made me smile just knowing that you were all there wishing me a better day. I do so appreciate the concern and support. It was just one of life's stumbles..... "kid issues" and summer employment issues, losing job benefits, and major plumbing issues at our summer lake house. It was just one of those things that snowballs and makes you think you're going to crack!! Good news..... I didn't!! I made peace with my daughter, some of the summer school issues were resolved (not all),but at least I will be employed for an extra 8 weeks this summer and they took away our raise for next year, but I guess the silver lining there is we never even got it so hopefully I won't miss it. I have my family,my friends (you guys are the best), I can put food on the table, have an occasional fun day out and I have a beautiful summer place to enjoy on hot summer days with family and friends. Life is good and I am grateful. And I'm not feeling to shabby about how I'm looking in my shorts this season! emoticon emoticon

    I have had a couple of days like that recently ... So afraid of things around the corner. I walked out my worries, and still I worried. It is all better. For me, it was a matter of standing up with a little honesty ... I had different problems than you. I have been re-reading Corrie Ten boom's "The Hiding Place." It helps so much in getting me to keep my priorities straight and to face what is bothering me. All is better. Corrie passed away many years ago. I still love her and her story ... A very brave lady, indeed.

    I'm so glad you're having a better day today. Sometimes everything escalates and it's easy to go ballistic. It's wonderful that you were able to stay calm, take a deep breath or several, and evaluate each element in the situation and that you're looking as positively as you can about the outcome.

    That lake shot... beautiful!

    Sometimes we get hit from all sides. How lucky you are, though, to have a summer lake house! I think that once we start to take care of ourselves, we become more resilient and able to handle life issues better. Enjoy that view!!

    What a beautiful view! I'm glad you are seeing the glass half full again! It is hard when you are dealt a day of blows like that. You always have us here when you need a pick-me-up!

    I'm so happy to hear you are feeling better about things. I was worried!
