I have found myself saying/humming this so often over the past week, can't get it off my mind.
So many things have went wrong this past week, heat pump messed up, major water leak, Axle got a bad report from his vet appointment, 43 year old friend died, have been worried about Sue (dragonmom) found out last night that another friends cousin was in a car wreck the day before killing him, 22, his girlfriend 23, and their 21 month old and 6 month old children - someone made some really vulgar comments on my sons FB post and momma mode kicked in, pulled coupons from inserts that I wanted to use and ripped the pages in the middle for easier bulk cutting and you guessed it, the coupon was in the center fold, ripped them all in half - so much on my mind - but it's all trivial compared to watching the news/ reading the paper and seeing all the troubles in this old world.
Just wanted to say hello - remember to prioritize, don't sweat the small stuff and be thankful.
Prayers appreciated and needed!

By NO means has your week been trivial. You've definitely had your plate overflowing & it's no wonder your mind is busy, trying to absorb it all. Don't forget to take some time out for YOU time & just veg. I have to do this every so often, take a whole day to just not do or think about the things weighing on my mind. Actually, I think I'm still in recovery mode from Christmas. LOL
The world has gotten to be a crazy place in which to live so I think we can all use a haven - a place where it's quiet & you feel safe, comfortable, warm & loved (can be your home, a church, your vehicle or just in your bedroom). And let yourself relax & blank out your mind. It's the best gift you can give yourself (besides chocolate & a million dollars. LOL).
Take care my friend! :)

Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside.
