So, today Ive been listening to Top of the World by Patty Griffin. Its my favorite song in the whole world. Its also a very sad song. I've been feeling really sad lately and tired. Ive had my period for 6 weeks, my moms been in the hospital for 9 weeks and theres been a few other ups and downs for me and my family. I'm getting a bit stressed worrying about everything and ive found myself putting the milk in the cupboard and the olive oil in the fridge and all kinds of silly little things that I do when I am stressed. I wish I could take everyones aches and pains away and I wish I could fix everything but I just can't and Ive realized that worrying about it doesn't help either. Ive been trying to distract myself and keep busy Ive been walking the dogs and going to the gym. On a side note, I wish I was one of those people that lost weight when they got stressed but alas I am not, I am the type that gains weight.
Anyways, Im trying to stress less and trying to just have faith that everything will work out in due time.
In a a way I guess I am lucky that I have all these wonderful friends and family members to worry about. I am blessed that I have so many people that I love and when they hurt I hurt. I hope they know no matter how far away I am or how long its been since ive seen them they are always in my thoughts and prayers.
I don't have a picture of my entire family but here is a picture of me and my Priddle family at our wedding in 2013.
