Ho Hum

Ho Hum, that is how I've felt the last day or two. I don't really know how to describe how I feel. I just know I don't like feeling this way. I've had one of my kids sick for almost a week now, which is never any fun. I hate money. Or maybe I hate the fact that I don't have a lot of extra money and the fact that I have to admit that. Life sure has thrown us a few twists and turns that haven't been very easy. I usually just ignore all that stuff and try to trudge along with a good attitude. But every once in a while, one more thing happens and all that other stuff has been building up for so long that I just need to vent. I'll get over it, it'll just take time. Isn't life grand?

It makes me wonder why we have such trials. I know it's for our own good, but it's very hard to look at it that way when you just keep getting hit with trial after trial and you wonder if it's EVER going to end. At the same time I do have to admit that there are other trials that I'm glad I don't have, which in a way I guess it makes me grateful for the trials I do have. I've been blessed with an amazing husband and we have a wonderful relationship. I have 4 angels that Heavenly Father has entrusted in my care. For these things alone, I am grateful and feel blessed. Now all I have to do is overcome all that other stuff that seems to be getting me down lately.

I hope your family gets feeling better soon. Sorry you are feeling ho-hum. {{{HUGS}}} to you. Sometimes it is easy, at least it is for me, to get caught in the cycle of woe is me and why is this happening to me and any number of negative thoughts and feelings that only breed more negative.

Sorry, I don't have any sage advice to give you, just try and find the positive in things. I am also really looking forward to conference this weekend. That always seems to cheer me up.

It's hard to deal with trial after trial. I wish sometimes life would give us a break. It seems like it's just one thing after another. I hope the "ho hums" don't last too long! :)

I think we all start feeling that way once in awhile and even though we know we have a lot to be grateful for the "ho hums" are still there. I don't have any advice either but usually the change of seasons helps brighten the day. Maybe it's the weather:)

I'm so sorry you've been feeling this way. And unfortunately I know it all too well. Husband unemployed, losing health insurance, having surgery, can't pay the mortgage, etc. All at once and it's really hard to understand in the midst of it all why it's happening. But I'm sure we'll both find our silver linings soon. I hope anyway.

You know a few years ago, I had a hard YEAR. It seemed everything was wrong and it was trial after trial. I have never cried so much in my life.. nor have I ever prayed so much in my life.

I've been blessed with a happy life, beautiful kids and successful husband, but trials will still come an go.

I hope you can wipe your tear and put a smile on your face.
