Beautiful Chrysanthemums

Last night, I was really depressed. I get that way sometimes. My home situation is not any better, but I did eat an early supper with my husband yesterday. We have not done anything together in over a month.

I get down because of my situation and forget to remember what I tell others when they get down–think of 5 things that are blessings in your life every time you feel down. There is also the letter that I wrote to myself, but remembering the blessings is what can help get our minds off the present situation. So what are my five things right now…my loving children, loving friends (especially internet friends 🙂 ), food to eat, a roof over our heads, and a God who loves me, cares for me, and sees to my every need. These are my top things-not necessarily in this order-but these are the most prevalent ones. To see that I have more in life, I will stop and think of 5 more things and repeat that. It helps take me out of my pity party and into something deeper.

These next few days will be filled with this type of searching of my soul, of my thoughts. When we are faced with possible life-altering occasions we want to find our meaning in life-our purpose-our mark to know where we are, where we have been, and where we are headed. Some great poets and writers have penned some wonderful writings on the subject-the contemplation of life. I don’t know where I am headed and I really hate that. I have always wanted to know so I could set a course and get on my way.

I hope you have a great Friday and may your day be blessed beyond measure. Happy Gardening in everything you do!
