Oh yes it could!
However, it isn't GREAT right now......
-Sugar Bear and I have a down right, disgusting, pain in the fanny pants COLD!
-My Internet HATES me, and won't let me retrieve my photos from Flickr!
-I have chipped laps....I mean Chapped Lips, and that is totally like ASKING...no BEGGING for a coldsore to emerge.
-It, perhaps, was the nicest day, weather wise, in the history of my town, and I was stuck inside the house with tissue stuffed up my nose.
-I have 684 cool crafty projects I WANT to be doing, but ZERO energy to do them.
-Something is attracting fruit flies to my kitchen, and I.CAN.NOT.FIND.IT!!!!!
Yes people.....It's been a bit bad around here recently, BUT despite this whiny post, I'm actually finding myself very contented in my life. I'm holding on to the really good things.
-I have a job. Oh yes, I do (and I have sick leave available.....one less today, though).
-I have food on my table.....actually MORE than I need.
I have enough $$$ to pursue many different hobbies.
-I have caring friends (including YOU).
-I am relatively healthy (minus this stinky cold right now).
-My hubby is healthy, and present.
-My child is healthy, present, and blossoming. She is seriously letting her little light shine. It is impossible to look at her and not be grateful for being alive.
(I would insert a fabulously gorgeous photo of the cutest child alive here, but......you know.....flickr hates me.)
I'm holding on to the GOOD, I really am. I am working hard to control my attitude, and my mood. It isn't easy. I'm finding myself wanting to stuff my body with emotional eating. I am refusing to do it. I'm letting my heart hurt, but not letting my body suffer.
Why all the drama? I mean nothing here is THAT bad, right?
Nothing is THAT bad......HERE!
but somewhere on the Pacific coast, a friend of mine is in her deepest despair, and I am unable to take that hurt away. She lost her 37 year old husband, and father of her two little girls on Friday. While he suffered from a blood disorder for years, they NEVER imagined that in a weeks time he would go from Water skiing, to needing a heart transplant, to receiving a heart, but having his body react so devastatingly that he was declared brain dead within a day of surgery. THIS was not expected....this was not imagines.....this was not.fair.at.all.
I can't not even imagine her pain and suffering. I can only hope and pray that she is able to find her footing, even though her foundation has been ripped out from under her. If you are the praying type, please say a little one for her and her girls.
Join me in embracing the things going right in your life, right now, because it could be a whole lot worse.
