I am so stressed out lately, it will be a wonder that i will have any hair left when DH returns home. Yesterday something else went wrong, and I just sat and cried. But! Then I went to work, and the first half hour was horrible, I just felt yucky and blah, but then as time went on, I fought it. I thought, If I keep going like this thinking negatively and what not I may spiral downwards and not bea ble to get back up, so I started thinking good thoughts, like about stitching, and the good things in life. I thought of all those other military spouses who had expectation of their loved ones returning home from war, only to get a notice that their loved ones weren't coming home, and the stress they had to go through as they had to plan a funeral for the person they lost. Or the family's of POW's who never know if they'll see their loved one alive again, or when. Those sitting in fear as they await the knowledge of a MIA that they hold dear to their hearts. And I cry because something goes wrong that added a little bit to my stressful load. All I've lost is a car. No biggie, I'll deal with all this isurance hooplah and get a new car and move on. I started thanking God for all the things large and small that I have to be thankful for, just the fact that I have two hands that I can use to do my beloved stitching is something I take for granted, I thanked God that I have a job, even if it's one I'm not particularly thrilled about. and as I went through all the things I have to be thankful for, the things that seemed so large and horrible started to shrink to tiny proportions, they started to look manageable.
Thank you all who have left me such encouraging comments in this time. Since my DH left and since my car accident, and even now. Thank you.
With all that said, I think I will get to my stitching, and watching more Gilmore Girls. I went to Amazon and did some retail therapy this morning, I got two books, and the first season of Gilmore Girls, all for the low low price of just 27.99! I am thinking about going to visit a stitching sight too, for retail therapy...this could possibly be disasterous, so maybe I shouldn't! =)
Thank you all again for listening to me blab about nothing really just getting things off my chest! I promise progress pics on my next post.
