when things don't go my way.......



I have alot of good in my life.
alot.
Im spoiled by 4 great and beautiful kids. Im not afraid to say it. They are BEAUTIFUL!
Its not my fault............ HF gave them to me.
A husband that takes off my toe nail polish while I soak in the tub, spoils me rotten with date nights and shoes and supports my insanly passion and addiction to photography, creating and painting and re-arranging.
he is ever so patient with me.
he loves me.
We have stuck it through together ever since we had nothing and were extreemly poor.
the kids adore him.
and quite frankly so do I!
I get my bubba keg filled at Iceburg everyday with Diet coke, lime and cherry for .54 and the lady knows my name.
I have a home that I love and still KISS my walls.
I have the best friends who lift me and fill my bucket EVERYDAY!!
I have an amazingly strong and close family and 4 older sisters who I look up too.
parents who are still married and love each other.
who have created a BOND within our family that will never be broken.
.
.
so, why is it...when you are so BLESSED.
and greatful.
when a bump gets thrown in your road you can't just THROW on your darlingest rainboots and HURDLE that bump like its nuthin'
I did tell a sweet person this the other day when she was down.
put on those rain boots girl and JUMP over that bump!
do it with style. :)
.
.
Im trying.
and I have 3 pairs of cute rain boots.
.
.
I am a happy person
Always have been.
STILL AM!
I just like my roads with NO BUMPS!
don't we all?
i like flat roads......with wild flowers on the side.
looks like I need to just follow the damn road and see where it takes me. it may curve and I may swear and complain...
but who knows I might like whats at the end of the Road?
I swear tho-----if its something dumb, im gunna be mad!
.
.
.
.
.
Its funny tho.
when I woke up this morning to find this quote in my inbox from my mom and her daily quotes she has done for 10 years..
it read:
*Look for moments of gratitude and joy so they can be converted into fuel to propel us through difficult days.*
(All Together in One Place /novel by Jane Kirkpatrick)
.
.
and altho this isn't a bad day...
I can still use this concept.
I think a postitive attitude is FUEL.
I may not get ANY fuel somedays...lol
but, i think Im gunna make it just fine :)
.
.
.
In the meantime,
Im going to make this FANTASTIC shirt to go with my rainboots.





HOW EASY!

and cute!
