It seems hard to find joy
It's difficult to put a finger on why
It's also hard to be completely honest as to why
It's not that I'm unhappy, just a feeling of being unsettled
Maybe it's because -
Cold weather makes me feel sad
I dread winter (I hate to admit that...it feels so shallow)
I'm still adjusting to mostly one income
I don't like to stretch a dollar..... all the time (there are better bargain hunters out there than me. I wish I were better at it. feels like it takes too much energy at times!!)
I'm tired (wonder if changing to a new pair of contacts would help....but it would be my last pair and I'd have to order more. really, I think that way!)
Moving feels overwhelming (geeze, and I'm just beginning the process!!)
Christmas is coming (which means doing less giving than I would like, again. I love to shop and give)
OK, ENOUGH OF THAT! I have so much to be thankful for!
I have a granddaughter who will be born in about a week. Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot wait to meet her!
I'm blessed with a wonderful Hubby and family.
I love my kids and they love me
I serve a Great Big God - he knows my beginning all the way to the end....He Is In Control!
I have a wonderful church family.
We have a wonderful pastor who is not timid about teaching what God lays on his heart for us to hear. That is a good thing!
I have a big bunch of siblings who love each other and love the Lord too
I have food on the shelves, in the frig and in the freezer - not all the food I would like but more than many in this world.
I have a comfortable home - again, not everything is new or really, really nice. But we never get wet in a rain storm and it's warmer inside than out.
Heck, I even have enough clothes and shoes to wear. Not a lot but enough.
I have a car and it's paid for
Greta is baking cookies =) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies!!!!
This is a different post than I usually do. I prefer to write about happy, joyful, endearing times that involve family. Today I'm feeling blah, so I thought I would be honest and say it!
The sun will come out tomorrow, bet my bottom dollar! (hehe)
