A very ruined Christmas

So this morning I woke up to chewed on open presents for my children and housemate. To say that my hisband and I were quite angry about it is an understatement. Granted we were going to let them open some of them tonight bit to instead have to let them open all of them……it’s very sad ( to the adults) the children are having a blast with their new stuff. At least they all have one more gift to open tomorrow. Hope everyone elses Christmas Eve is going much better than mine. Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Taking a turn on the soapbox

Dear American government I am tired, this is the holiday season and instead of being stressed out about gift giving, food and fun I am worried that I won’t be able to feed my children at the beginning of the new year because you are all acting like spoiled children. I could care less about your political agenda but as one of the millions of Americans that has been unemployed for over a year I do care about the bickering that is going on over extending Federal benefits to the very people who are helping to boost the economy. Must we the people constantly remind you that we pay the very wages that you are using for your fancy cars, lavish and expensive Christmas gifts, and vacations while the vast majority of us are worring about how to pay our rent, keep our lights on and get our kids gifts off of layaway so they can have a Christmas. To those of you who say people on extended benefits are lazy and on drugs shame on you! I’m sure the vast majority of us would rather have a stable job somewhere than to be at home, also here’s a little bee for your bonnet – not everyone does drugs!!! I for example cant afford childcare on the whole $375 (before I have taxes taken out) I get every week and now I’m being told I’m lazy, on drugs and do nothing but watch TV all day yeah right. What are you doing with the money the American people are trusting you with? I know you are trying to tell us we don’t deserve money that we worked hard to pay in. I for one say if I have to worry over the holidays if I will get another check you should not be allowed to go home until we the people get an answer. (Stepping off the soapbox)

Smelling of roses?

Sometimes life is hard. For some people it may be unbearably so but somehow we are given the strength, the will power and the ability to press on. Not every cloud has a silver lining, every day isn’t sunshine and roses but that doesn’t mean give up. Hold on for the cloud with the silver lining for it may contain your dreams, wait for the sunshine and roses for it makes up for the days of doom and gloom. The Bible says weeping may endure for the night but joy comes with the morning light. I know for a fact some of those nights are long and dark, you feel all alone but I’m here to tell you what you feel and what is true can be two totally diffrent things. Hang in there there are more people who care than you are giving credit to. Just because they aren’t in your face 24/7 doesn’t mean they aren’t watching, listening and praying. You are loved, cherished and cared for (about) if by no one else by me. God bless and let’s make it over the hump! Happy hump day 🙂

A bad day

Yesterday was a bad day. Not that anything really bad happened it was just one of those things where I ended up interacting with people who get under my skin in a way that no one person should be allowed to endure. So what did I do? I spent most of yesterday praying and not those corny little prayers either I mean the kind where you put it all out there and confess your own fault(s) instead of pointing fingers and having a temper tantrum. Am I better today, spiritually yes, emontionally and mentally not by a long shot but I know I will be cuz I gave it to God who always does a better job of dealing with me and others than I could ever dream of. Thank God for a new day, new blessings, new mercies and most of all grace. I know I will have to deal with these people again but with the grace of God on my side I will be better able to check my emotions and be objective and (prayerfully spend ther rest of the day) less pissy.
