A Little Better Each Day


We did have a nice night out last night. A good talk with hubby over dinner was just what I needed. Just as we share our happiness, I think it's important to be open about our sadness. I am so blessed to always be in agreement with my hubby. I think it's just part of being made for each other. He doesn't think my nature-girl ways are kooky. He actually supports and agrees with my passions about the dangers of vaccinations and the importance of breastfeeding. He thinks what I have to say is important and meaningful. To be able to pour my heart out to one person that will pour his heart right back to me... I'm blessed.

I am crawling out from under the dark cloud. I think a nap would be good medicine. Hoping for that tomorrow... today I did get out by myself to do quiet things like go to the library and to the knitting shop where I got some yummy yarn and new needles to make myself a hat. And they were having a sale. Good for me. I got my hair cut, too. There's something cathartic about that; in my mind I envision a release and a letting go. A little bit of a new beginning.

The sun didn't shine at all today, but I made the best of it. I still wore my flower earrings. And I told myself, "Good for you."

  4. You know how I knew it would help? Choreographed dance scenes make my day. The rainbow clothes were just a bonus.

  5. Nature girl ways? Steph - I LOVE what you have to say and the information that you have to back it up!! I am sure there are days that others question you on your beliefs but take the comfort in knowing that you have read up the important decisions that you have faced!

    I think that you are also very blessed to have a wonderful man as your partner and soul mate. I understand what you mean about happiness with your husband as I too have a very similar relationship. We never argue or get disappointed in one another as we are always on the same page. We always seem to be laughing and support each other 100% through life's ups and downs.

    I hope that you are feeling lighter and that those gorgeous earrings worked!! I have a pair of flower power bell bottom jeans that I put on whenever I need a pick me up. :)

  10. Glad you're feeling a bit better. :)
    We were at church today and the pastor said something that clicks w/ your post. He said we're all sick of the weather-the lack of sunshine, the constant cold and gray..it's hard. He went on to say how we can be warmth for each other, especially our families. To pray for and with each other, and with our personalities keep being warm. "Make your own sunshine" type of thing, I suppose.
    Anyway, I thought of that when reading your post. You said the sun didn't shine, but you made the best of it. Good for you!
    And I hope you know-It's so easy to come and read your blog each day because you do give off such warmth.:)

  12. It's so easy to forget about ourselves. It's the double-edged sword of being a woman: God blessed us with the longing to serve, yet once in a while, we end up feeling a little used up. Or that we could being doing more somehow.

    I'm so happy that you have such a wonderful hubby and other things in your life to help lift you up. It is amazing the power little things like flower earrings can have. You never know what God will use to bring you joy.

    Keeping looking up, girl!! :o)

  18. I've been sad for ages too, this drifting aimless sadness, but it's lifting and will be gone and there will be spring. Right now, I'm being kind to myself, finding ways to bring joy into my day. It sounds like you have someone who really loves and gets you and that is a huge and healing blessing.

  20. i so get what you are saying... where would we be if at least the husbands didnt understand us? i would breastfeed regardless of what my husband thought... but its so comforting to know that he agrees...

  21. Hey girl - If you are up in the midwest I know the gray days can get you down. I know they did for me when we were living in MI and it carried over into other things and made me feel blagh.

    Getting outside and enjoying the sun will be good for you. It's good for everyone! There is a reason light boxes are becoming popular!

    I have a friend who is weaning now because her daughter is one and her hubby wants "me back". I see her daughter grab at her shirt, confused as to why now is different from last week, and it makes me so grateful for my hubby who never did anything but support me in breastfeeding!

    Hang in there girl . . . .
