So for normal, chemically balanced people, life has lots of ups and a few downs, but they don't get to low and you can climb out. Well, in my world, they get so low you couldn't find them with a shovel, and forget trying to climb out, you just have to ride it out, hoping you can crawl out after a few days!
I am not saying my life is any harder, or that I have it worse than anyone, I just have my own challenges. Ones many people never understand. I don't understand it half the time! And I have lots of friends who want to be able to fix everything. It just can't be done. There is nothing any of my amazing friends can do, but wait it out with me. There is nothing to be fixed and make it go away.
As I am just coming out of one of these such weeks, I am so thankful for all my family and friends who do stick around through it all. I have been blessed with an amazing husband who understands and lets me work it out, while loving me and helping when he can.
I am also so thankful to have the Lord on my side. He is the only one who can really help me through these challenges. After the fact it is easy to look back and see where I started to slip, and if I was doing what I was suppose to be doing: prayer, scripture study, charity; I could have avoided this past week.
So, I am getting back on track, and I hope that my ups stay longer, my downs keep nice and short, and that I remember the Lord in everyday of my life. I hope you can do the same! Funny thing, hope. One of my favorite quotes says, "Hope is a creation, not a gift." So may we each make our own hope for the month!
