Today is the first day that I’ve worked out in a while.  I needed it.  I was getting down and it’s Christmas and I don’t want to be down.  I’ve been so frustrated lately; I’ll give you the short list…

Frustration over not having my mom here anymore, frustration that I feel like this weight will never come off, frustration over new injuries that kept popping up from the wreck, frustration over church, frustration over friends that may not be friends, and to top it off my husband’s friend had a severe stroke yesterday and isn’t doing well.

Sounds depressing doesn’t it?  But it’s time to kick the frustration in the butt!  God has worked through a lot of this and I’m letting Him handle it.  My injuries are much better now.  Church seems to be working itself out although I am very shaky because my family has a lot of hurt to work through, but God is working that out too.

The girls and I went over to my dad’s and spent hours decorating the house for him.   It looks beautiful and it reminds me of mom and how pretty she made everything.  He loved it!  We loved it and it made all of us feel better.  Then we wound up helping a friend of Becca’s and her mom with a little decorating.  They were going through a though time also.  We all had so much fun!

As far as friends that may not be friends, I’m letting God work that one out.  I’m staying true to myself and I’m staying a friend.  My kids are going through the same thing right now, so I’m trying to lead by example.  But some of our true friends have invited us to a bonfire this weekend and I can’t wait!  Even true friends of my kids are turning up and cranking back up friendships and they are being invited everywhere!  It’s amazing what happens when you just let God take control.

As far as my husband’s friend, he and his family need your prayers.  God knows what is best for him and his family.  But that doesn’t make it any easier right now for them.  So we will be patient and wait and pray.

So needless to say I’ve been waking up feeling really bummed over the past month or so, but also really happy at the same time for the things are changing.  I need to get rid of the funk!  So I made myself workout this morning.  It was great!  And now I’m blogging again and I haven’t done it in forever! Did it make all that was wrong go away?  No, of course not.  But I do feel more focused and that is what I need right now.  To focus.  So if you feel bummed, do something for someone else, exercise and pray.  Then get up and do it and let God handle the rest!  You never know what surprises might  happen if you do!
