Peaceful Morning

This morning I woke up early, for me anyway, and had breafast out on the back porch looking over the river. It was kind of cool with the wind blowing, but I'm not going to complain since a lot of you are still experiencing winter. It was so nice to be able to hear the wind blowing and birds singing and the squirls playing in the trees. It was a great way to start the day.

I'm still looking for a job. Right now it is really getting my down. As strange as it might seem to some of you, I miss working. I miss getting up in the morning and having some place to go and something to do. Don't get my wrong, I stay "busy" with school, church and family but it still isn't the same.

Sorry this wasn't a "happy" post, but I needed to vent a little. Things around here are pretty stressful with everyone not doing well. Mom is still sick, Dad is still having major issues and even Grandma has started having more problems breathing and so I'm trying to take care of everyone and it has just gotten me down.

Jeez, Steph, if this is you VENTING, then bring it on!! Seriously, you complain/vent as much as you need to. We love you happy or otherwise.

Bless your heart. We love you, happy, unhappy or whatever. This is your blog, your place to let down. I will keep your family in my prayers. Just a thought...with all of your family sick and needing you, at least you don't have the obligation to go to work and have to leave them behind. Been there, done that and it's tough. So, for today, we'll thank God you're able to help with your family and pray that God will give you peace until He presents you with a perfect job for you. Lots of hugs.

I'm sorry to hear you are having a rough time Stehph. Please, vent if you need to. Sometimes you've just gotta let it all out and putting it in words can make you feel better. We are all here to listen.

Thinking of you...

You don't ever need to apologize for how you feel, Steph! No one is happy all the time, we all have bad days, and sometimes it just feels better to share the burden with someone. You have an awful lot going on with your family right now, and worrying is natural. It can also be very stressful caring for someone who is sick. You have to remember to take care of Steph, too, you know? I'm sorry about the job situation, hopefully something positive will happen soon. It's hard just waiting around, isn't it? Hope things improve all the way around, and you feel better real soon. Until then, vent all you need to! :o)
