Feeling blue

I had a great time while my mom was here visiting and now, for a lot of reasons, I'm feeling down.

I'm sad about my brother.
I'm sad about my dad.
I miss my mom.
I hate seeing Mollie miss her grandmother.
I am sad for the thousands of people affected by the cyclone in Burma and earthquake in China.
I'm sad for the man who died in an accident right in front of me on Saturday.
I'm sad for the woman who hit him with her car.
I'm sad for my colleague who broke his back.

And I'm thankful for what I have- my health, my husband, my kids, food and shelter, etc.

This is proving to be a busy week with not much time to reflect, run errands, or relax. I still have 3 packages sitting in the house ready to go to the post office and I haven't managed to make it over there. Maybe by Saturday...

I know there is a lot to be blue about but I am learning to rejoice in my life as it is, day by day. (It's only taken 56 years!) I had a wonderful time in GA. My granddaughters are a joy to behold. I treasure every minute of my visit. Seeing their pictures on my desk throughout the day is a great spiritual charge!
Love to you all.
