So Many Thoughts, So Few Words

Sometimes things get to be too much. The pressure of every day life seems heavier and harder to carry. This has been a difficult year for me, in many ways and it continues to be so. I have been laid up and knocked out for the last few days after somehow throwing out my back (no, it could not have been picking up a slightly heavy 3-year-old with a full leg cast).

In spite of the feelings of pain and new suffering and sadness this week (God Bless you little angel, Grama will meet you in Heaven some day , tell Collin I love him too) I seem to feel some hope. Hope for what I am not sure, it is just a sense of well-being that seems incongruous to the state of my life right now, but is unshakeable all the same.

    The ability to see the blessing in life despite experiencing pain is important. It also demonstrates a faith in a power greater than yourself. It is what allows us to survive painful times. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Vixen.

  4. And I will pray for that Hope to continue in your heart. Also for the healing of that 3 year olds leg and your back. Girl I’m beginning to think we might need to give you the nickname JOB (the Job in the Bible pronounced Jobe) Where would we be without the Hope God offers us deep down inside??

  5. I’m so sorry to read of your troubles and my heart goes out to you as you struggle.
    I loved to read you are feeling hopeful. There are many dark days in life but never give up hope.
    You will be in my thoughts.

    As Christopher Reeve said, “Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.” You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

  12. You have the right attitude–your feeling of hope. 🙂 Things will turn around soon. I hope your back is feeling better.

  13. I’m ready for the end of “Suck-it 2008” and ready to face “Bring-It 2009”.

    Hope you are feeling better soon, sweetie!!

  14. With the losses your family has suffered, it would be easy to let yourself be blue. I’m glad you have that feeling of hope and that good things are coming. I can’t even imagine the losses suffered, and how deeply that must affect everyone.

    I do know that it’s easier to come back from loss if you can find something to be hopeful about. If you can imagine good things coming around the bend. I hope you are able to pass on some of those feelings a bit to those around you.

    Love & hugs,

  16. Thank God for the hope right? Without it there’s nothing really to try to live for. Always look for that hope!
