a new day!

I am so sick of my sadness...and recently read that I shouldn't let this grief take me over..instead I need to use it to grow in my faith in God and use it to follow His path.

I have to switch it up and get motivated. And trust me, this is not easy. And I am very sure that God is picking me up right now and that is the only reason I feel the least bit motivated.

Today I feel very motivated. Motivated to enjoy life. Even the smallest bit of it. I cooked some blueberry muffins for bkfast..well maybe more like brunch. I woke up at 8 and then caught up on some shows on my dvr. I love that thing!! Then I finally went into the pantry and looked for some fuel. I found these muffins that say they are whole wheat..I am sure they probably just have some in them...but whatever. I believe they are healthy..and they are..hehe Of course, I totally made them not healthy by dipping them in log cabin syrup. That stuff is oh so yummy!! It was when I took Maggie out for the 100th time to potty that I remembered how blessed I am. How I have a great life and a lot of ppl would want to get to stay home like I do. My husband has given me a great gift. I can get up whenever I want and I work at my own pace without a boss breathing down my neck. Granted I don't get payed for my work, but instead I get more freedom. I can sit on the couch with maggie curled up in my lap..typing on my blog..all day if I want. And don't get me wrong I am not trying to be all "oh look at me". I am just writing out my thought process that has helped me wake up and smell the roses!!!

I thought, you know how you always feel jealous of parents. Well, I am sure they are jealous of us too. Don't get me wrong I would trade all my extra sleep and time for a baby crying constantly anyday!!!!!! But I have to learn to appreciate what I have right now. Instead of ALWAYS seeing the grass as always greener on the other side. So that is what I am doing today...just enjoying the life God has given me.

Who knows what the day holds..maybe I will work in the yard, or get lost in a book... I am excited..yay...not as sad anymore. Thank you Lord!!

If I do work in the yard I will have to post pics later on. Oh yeah, the other day Todd and I went into a furniture store...just looking. They were having an awesome sale..and we found our bedroom furniture. We have been using Todd's furniture and it isn't really our style..it is very manly :d So we have been casually looking forever. We always find the style, but not the right color. When we saw this ensemble we were psyched...and we BOUGHT it. It will be delivered next Thursday and I am tickled! We have had a comforter and curtains for over a year in the closet..just waiting to be brought out..I can't wait to hang those curtains and put our comforter on our new bed :D We are also painting some rooms in the house..soon. And the master bedroom is one of them. And when I say we are painting, I mean someone else..hehe So when it is all done..I will post some pics. Okay off..to enjoy the rest of this gorgeous day. Love y'all!

Hoping this mood and change last a long time! It is hard to be joyful and change our mood when we are hurting. But, we can either choose to be bitter, or be joyful no matter what. Praying we both keep this mood :-)

I'm so glad you're having a good day! Yay for new furniture and getting things done around the house! :) I am currently a stay-at-home wife, too, and you're right - it is truly a blessing, especially when going through treatments and all the accompanying doctors' visits, hormone shots, and roller-coaster emotions. Hope the rest of your day is great, too!

hey girlie,
I'm glad you had a good day today. We all need to learn to be thankful for all God has given us. We have it so good, and don't stop to appreciate it. You're also definitely blessed to get to stay at home and be a lady of leisure...:)

Luv ya.

As BikerMan always says to me, "you're envious of people with babies, they're are PLENTY of people who completely envious of you" and he's right.

I know that we're doing alot better than alot of people and I know there are people who look at my life and wish they had it.

There is always someone worse off than you!

Looking at your life and being grateful for what you have and where you currently stand in life, is a blessing in itself and I'm so happy that you've been able to do that!
