A brighter day

I had a few dark days last week, feeling so much frustration, guilt, and even depression, that I wasn't sure how I was going to pull myself back up. As it turns out, I couldn't do it. At least, not on my own. It was thanks the kind words and support of my friends, close by and far away, that I was able to release the anger and guilt I was feeling. I am amazed at how quickly my mood lifted. The fog cleared and I felt more relaxed and more prepared to handle what was on my plate. The situation has not changed very much, but my reaction has. 

So, thank you thank you thank you for caring so muc, offering wonderful advice and for your willingness to share your own stories so I know I'm not alone. You all are amazing women, mothers, and friends and I love you!

I'm so glad you feel better. It's amazing how just knowing someone out there understands and goes through the same things can be a balm. Aren't you glad you're off the 'crazy train'? (as Carrie said. I loved that comment because that is SO how I feel at the time it's happening.)

Also glad your days are looking up. Just get out of the house and enjoy your warm weather and be thankful you're not up here in the freezing cold. We're always here for you....until our "crazy train" pulls out of the shed and goes screaming down the tracks.

I am so glad you are feeling optimistic again...me too. You are a wonderful Mom and the sweetest person and it is an honor to call you my friend(even if you aren't going to Corpus)!
