Peace Everyone -
It is snowing outside, my landlord hasn't shoveled yet, I gotta go to the city today and I don't get paid until tomorrow. I am tiiiiiiiiiiggggghhhhhhhttttttttt!!!!! lol. But nonetheless joyed to still be here and able to provide for my family, reach out to you and be involved in as many things as I am.
I am happy that my children ae healthy and that my daughter is enjoying homeschooling. I am joyed when I see that even though it's difficult my seeds are fullfilled, my bills are paid (selectively) on time...lol( I rotate each month) and that when I am feeling down... my daughter will make me some Tea and her dope potato recipe and my son will bring me a picture he drew for me ( allegedly ofcourse because he dug on the bottom of his bookbag for it lol and it has a year old date on it) and give me a kiss on my cheek.
I am proud that I am learning what my limitations are... in every aspect...and refining them in the appropriate manner. I am proud that I am working two jobs but know that I won't always because there is something greater that I am working towards. I have not only knowledge 120 but I LIVE it and Understand it. That I actually have female friends who tolerate my crazy self and lend an ear and take my ear for the lending as well...
I say all this to say that even though times are hard... there are things that continue to fulfill and make me smile each day... and that gives me an extra push not to give up even when sometimes I want to.
It will not always be this way... but even though it is now... I can always see the best part.
What is it that brings you joy...that makes you smile when times are down? Is there a special moment that you think of that makes you laugh when you think of it? Sometimes it's good to build on just those things...
