Gratefulness is everything.

Goodness gracious, I'm tempted to delete that last post! If you've read it already, I'm sorry. I really sounded pitiful, with no reason to be pitied. Thankfully I woke up this morning feeling as though a Horcrux had been lifted from around my neck. I was happy to be alive again, grateful for the abundant blessings I've been given. And I do know how abundant they are, even when I'm in a melancholy funk. I just can't feel it properly in that moment for some reason. But a good night's sleep always helps. Drinking enough water, taking my vitamins, moving even just to take dishes into the kitchen, or just watching my boys play for a little while -- it all helps. Little things, yes, but very important things.

Please, go do me a favor and take care of the little things in your life, too.

I can soooo relate Amanda!! I turn into a werewolf once a month!! Sometimes for just a day, sometimes for a few days. It's awful. I feel so bad for myself, and those around me during those times too. The whole world crashes in on me, and I feel like I'm drowning. But, the feeling does go away, only to return in another 28 days though. I try to recognize when the feeling is coming on, and not really talk to anyone, or make any decisions, and definatly not have any major discussion with hubby at all. But, there are those months when it catches me by surprise.

Glad you are feeling better today!!! We are on chapter 14 of deathly hallows. I think we are going to read 2 chapters tonight, hehe.

Glad your feeling better, I also find that when I'm grateful it MAKES me happier as well as the other way around, if you know what I mean.
