House of Cards

There are days like this when you just knew that you should have stayed in bed. Your heart just is not in it anymore. All sounds are like thunder breaking through glass, each minute feels like a hundred and when the silence finally comes you just want to scream. 
Is there one day when you finally feel like “THIS IS ENOUGH?”  Do you feel like something in the universe is just picking on you for no reason? Even worse, “What have I done to disserve this?” Has it ever happened to you that everything is going so wonderful that you think, “Something bad is going to happen now?” Do you have a house of cards that keep tumbling down? How about, every time you get up on your feet, something or someone comes along to knock you down. 

Some of you may know what I am talking about. Probably most of you do. Times in your life that should be so wonderful, a rainbow in the sky, a true Disney film, and then bang out of nowhere Steven King comes along with a horror story to set you on another page. How do you deal? I do not have the answer but I sure would like one.

Have you read my blog? lol My friends joke and say if it wasn't for bad luck I'd have none.
I'll tell you how I deal. Day by day. I try to find something that makes me smile.. Anything. I don't care if it's something the kids or animals do. I don't care if it's seeing someone do something stupid. I find something. There are days when there seems to be nothing, so just like the occasional fake "O" I fake it. I'm sorry you are going through hell. I wish I could help you. Right now though i'm sending a giant hug your way and know that I wish I could give you one for real.

Whoa, girl! What the heck happened? I joke about this in my blog all the time. That's how I handle it.
Honestly, more and more I 'm trying to let go and let God. Some things are too big for little old me.
You know how to find me -- I'm here for you.
Hugs and love.

One day at a time sweet Jesus is all I'm asking of you. Give me the strength to carry me through just one day at a time.
I don't know the words to the rest of the song but these words have always carried me through.
God bless you Siv, Geoff.

I'm praying for you. I've definitely had times like that.

I'm sorry, Siv!
I try to remember that there's a season for everything and ask God to get me through the down ones.

Oh, Sis,

Breathe.... keep breathing..... One day at a time, but please remember to BREATH... DEEPLY.

HUGS, HUGS, and even more HUGS.....

You're in my thoughts.... always.

Big Hugs! I think the same thing. I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop because no matter how much good happens, there's always something terrible right around the corner. All I can do is pray and go forward, enjoying the good as much as I can.
