Wednesday, Happy? Holidays?

     By reading some posts I think there are a few of us that are approaching this .....  I actually laughed when I saw this.  I needed to laugh.                                                                       I think I am allowing myself to be taken down by my mother's cheerfulness.  

     So what am I going to do about this?  Well I am going to concentrate on gratitude.  Please help me with this.  Please.  I need help, a lot of help.  Help me to be grateful and not dwell on lasts years Holiday fiascos.  Help me to be patient with my mother.  Do not allow me to get pulled down by her mean and snarky comments.  Help me to have patience and understand her and pity her.  Just because she is unhappy does not mean I have to be unhappy Right?

     In order to fight these holiday blues, I am going to get to work, as work is a great panacea for depression.  I can't really say I am depressed, but mom is and she could take a league of Angels down with her.

1. Call all people in the shop 
2. Finish one dress
3. laundry turn over
4. help mom make meat balls for open house( like this needs to be done today)
5. make 4 pies
6. peel and boil sweet potatoes for tomorrow.
7. get squash prepped for tomorrow.

      Mom is upset by my bad cough and cold.  First my poor Lil sis was so sick with a cold and now I am down/up/ down with a bad cough.  But remember we are not allowed to be sick.  She keeps making comments about how tired she is of people coughing all the time.  She had to put up with Lil sis and now me.  Her life is so hard.  My little inner voice is saying, "Come here and let me make your life hard."  Okay that is not the point of this post. This post is to help me be up, up, up!

     I am blessed with work, I am blessed with wonderful sisters.  I am blessed with great kids and grandsons,I am blessed with skills to help me when ever I need them.

     Well I had better get to work as no one else is going to do it!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving

Kim

  1. Come on, shoulders squared up and stand up straight. Start by looking cheerful and positive and eventually you trick the brain in to following that mood. You can do it. Your emotions come from you not from others. You cant change them but you can change how their attitude lands with you. Go Go Go!!! xx

  3. Just because you are blessed doesn't mean you are immune, shielded from being driven bonkers by your mother. I will trade you one cough for an infected finger! ???

    1. Yes I will trade you as an infected finger does not make you pee yourself every time it hurts.

  7. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and try not to bug your mom with your cough and sneezes (How dare you!) Hope tomorrow is fun and filled with laughs (even if it makes you cough more)

  8. I'm so sorry your mother seems unable to appreciate you, and that you're ill again. You work so hard, and work so hard to do it cheerfully; I wish some of the people in your life could see how fortunate they are in you.

  9. Mom, for the love of Pete just stand up to her. It could go something like "Mom, a virus has chosen me as its host. And until my body fights off this infection I will be coughing. Do I get prissy with you when you end up in the hospital every holiday? No, I don't. I know you are sick,and I treat you with kindness. Perhaps you could return the same favor to me?"
