Blogging about...not blogging

Hello there! Welcome back.  I haven't been hanging out here a lot lately.  Some of that has to do with life in the fall.  School starts back and Sam is playing football.  Pee Wee football is a big time commitment, ya'll.  For realz.

But, I'm going to be honest with you.  I haven't been blogging because, well I'm going to be blunt here, life has sucked lately.  And no one wants to read about that.  Seriously, you have your own problems.  Why do you want to hear about mine?  So, I haven't wanted to bother anyone with my troubles. 

I'm pretty lucky that I have a strong faith so I recognize that my troubles are but a bump in the road. And I know that my troubles don't define me.  But sometimes that realization doesn't stop me from crawling in.  That's what happens when I'm worried or bothered.  I stop talking.  (My husband doesn't think that's possible)  Actually, I lose my ability to make small talk.  I have so much on my mind that I find it hard to clear my mind and focus on the other person.

So, here I am.  Being honest.  Telling you that life stinks sometimes.  But, I'm working hard to put that aside and really connect with people.  I don't want to be that selfish moody person.  I am, by nature, funny and happy.  I want to be funny and happy no matter what's going on in life.  So, I'm back to my blog.  Trying to be funny and happy.

So, what's up with you?  Tell me about it in the comments and I'll be happy and funny with you!

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13

I hear ya, sister. I'm really sorry life has sucked for you lately. I hate when life sucks and people give you sweet little platitudes involving sunshine and storms and pretty flowers and mountains and valleys. That's so not what you need. So I'll just say I'm sorry, and I've been in dark places, too - and they suck. I love you a whole bunch.
