How are you?

So, again I say to you, I know I haven't been writing a lot lately. And it isn't because I haven't been sitting down at the computer. I've actually even logged on to the blog a few times, started writing, and erased the whole post. I had second thoughts.

There are a lot of stories in my life right now. But they aren't really my stories, so I hesitate to write too much.

But there are a lot of things to think about. There are illnesses, deaths, and other family dramas. I think of everyone I know, everyone I am friends with, or family, EVERY FAMILY I KNOW, and honestly, I can think of no one who has no problems. There are some HUGE problems out there.

I think about these problems a lot. I think and I think. I think - and stress, or get worried, or aggravated, or whatever, depending on the day, depending on my own hormone level, depending on the problem.


I read a bit of a book today. The book said, everything is about your attitude. The author said, to paraphrase, "You think THIS is bad? Believe me, it can always get worse. As long as it doesn't kill small children, it could be worse." The author? She meant what she was saying. Her daughter has a significant illness. The book wasn't about philosophy. It was about that illness.


So. How are you? I'm fine. Really. Really good.

There will always be moments in life - good moments, bad moments... They are part and parcel of life. They come and go. So relax and take it easy. :-)

Sue, you aren't looking hard enough. I don't have any problems. I refuse to have problems. Mom

Vincent -- That's my plan! :D

Mom -- I think I've learned that from you. And from Dr. Norman Vincent Peale's book, the Power of Positive Thinking. :D LOL

Remember Sue...every problem has a silver lining....Kelly may have problems but she's fantastc!!!! God has blessed me very much.

Each person needs to look at their problems and deal. they are significant to each person but can usually be managed. I say this now as things are manageable...(don't ask me when things are chaos)
