I would have written a lot more in the past week, honest. But I have been far too complainy and I didn't want to destroy your happy lives with the frustrations in mine (unless, of course, I called you and told you all of the bad things that happened this week - then I did want to destroy your happy life with my frustrations). I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, knowing that the Lord is just trying to humble me and mold me into a better person. But sometimes it's just so hard to be happy. You know what I mean? Don't get me wrong; the whole world hasn't come crashing down on me.. yet. It's just one small thing after another. And those tend to pile up quickly; when it rains, it pours.

One thing I do to keep up my spirits is sing. Last night I was singing Christmas songs and church hymns in the shower. I felt liberated. Free. The cares of the world couldn't reach me in that shower. And when I got out of the shower, I played Guitar Hero (on medium instead of hard, because I needed a stress reliever, not a stress builder). That also helped. What do you do to help you through your hard times?

Hey, I played GH Rock Band for the first time last night for FHE! I was the singer, of course and at the end it said I Rocked! LOL I was singing "Crazy Train"! I wish someone would have told me I rocked before, because this has changed my whole outlook on life! Now I know! Now I may proceed through life in a whole different direction! LOL

So I was listening to the oldies station the other day. I wish that I could remember which song it was but there was some song talking about dancing and how everything is ok when your dancing. And I remember thinking how true that was. Good music and moving your body in strange erratic ways, it always fixes me.

I'm sorry you've been having some hard times, you are right though, you are being molded and shaped by having trials. Seriously, I've been there!

I don't mean to give you primay answers, but I'm dead serious here: SERVE SOMEBODY! Whenever I feel crappy, I do something nice for somebody else and it doesn't take long for me to get out of my funk.

Love ya!

Sorry about the stress. I know what you mean about when it rains, it pours. To help me, I get in the car alone and put in a CD (something like Oasis) and turn it up loud. Of course this only works if Nathan is home to watch the kids.
