Down week.

I've been pretty down this week. 
Lots of stuff going through my head, and not a real way of getting it out to make sense.

So after a couple of really bad days, I decided that if I can't fix the problems or whatever myself, I COULD do things to actively make myself feel better. 
Step one was easy.  My kid is awesome and makes me smile every single day.
Ok, come ON.  Our church directory picture.

Check.

Step two was to do something to make myself feel purdy.
Umm, why haven't I been getting funky colors?  I'm not a white tips kinda girl.  Time I get back to myself.
Check.

Step three was to get outside.
A walk in the woods with my lovey and my dogs was good for the spirit.

Check.

Step four was to have one of my best friends over for talking&wine.


We ran out of wine.


Check.

I appreciate the people in my life.
I miss the people I don't talk to or see much of.
I have to make a conscious effort to be happy sometimes, and I know that everyone has to do that now and again.
I have to remember that things could ALWAYS be worse.  In the moment, things always seem worse than they are.  Gotta pray.

In case you needed to see what a tender hearted baby looks like, here's Delilah when she's unable to play with her Grandpa and give him hugs because he's sick.  She told me that she's really sad because he was sick.



He didn't have supper with us for 3 days because he didn't want to get everyone else sick, and she was so darn concerned about him she just couldn't contain her sadness.  I just freaking love her tender caring heart.  She is so much like me.  


Step 5 is a shopping day out with my mom and Delilah.  I'm looking for a new sectional or living room set, and we're gonna go out to eat as well.

I don't want you to be sad, and I am touched by the reason you are sad. We will have super awesome day tomorrow with lots of pictures and much laughter and frivolity. Just what we both need!
