A no picture post....

I usually don't post this sort of thing....don't know why I feel the need now, it's not like I have hundreds of people reading my blog...only the people who, I hope, like me....LOL. I usually keep my posts light and middle of the road kind of news with some scrappy projects. I'm not a very creative writer, I wish I was, like Sheye Rosemeyer or Leah Killian

It's been a rough start to the year, I'm not used to so much drama in my life...I live a pretty normal simple life but lately not so much. It just seems like when I pick myself up something knocks me down again....really not used to this and don't much like it. Don't get me wrong, I've had some really good things happen this year already and those are the sorts of things I kind of hope to happen, I'm really fortunate not to have too many pitfalls in my life as it's usually pretty even and normal. I like it that way. Lately though....people are kind of surprising me with their behavior.

In this next paragraph I want to write a response to those who mistreated me this year, I want to scream at the bully and curse at the know it all and go postal on those who won't mind their own business and leave mine alone. I want to stoop down to their level and tell them exactly what is on my mind and dish back the crap they are giving me. But I won't because I feel sorry for them, they are shallow people who really need to go to church and LISTEN. I have to say that I am so disappointed and saddened in with the actions of so many people right now. I'm in shock, one after the other they just keep coming.

Last November I found this blog post at Brave Girls and I would love to share it with you, it is so worth your time to read it, you can find it here. Today, as I was sobbing, I realized that I have something so much more than those people will ever have and I find strength within myself that empowers me even more. That's actually the good part....picking myself up, looking to improve, forgive and learn. I am the one who will be smiling in the end because I know.

So please, when you are out in the jungle of life think about the signs people are wearing and be kind and gentle to one another....we have such little time and we don't want to waste it on anger.

Spill away LL! We are all entitled to vent! Surround yourself with people who make you feel good, try to accept the bad ones for who they are even if they don't deserve it. Because if you can do that, then they can't ever get you down. Chin up buttercup! Xx

Oh, Laura-Lee! I had no idea you've been going through such a difficult time! (((Hugs))) I don't know the details, but I will keep your situation in my prayers. I read that blog post, and it had me in tears! Thanks for sharing that. It is important to remember that we don't know what anyone is going through until we walk a mile in their shoes.
