Silver Lining

I think I have heard the saying "When it Rains it Pours" from at least ten different people over the last couple of days. I am kinda sick of hearing it...but, I suppose it is true. Why is it when one thing goes wrong in life it feels like EVERYTHING goes wrong? I do not want to bore you with all the stormy details but I have to say life has been less than sun-shiny around our home this week.

This unstable "weather" has resulted in Nicole Grump Fest-2008! I have not been a very nice person lately. Not to my husband or my kids. I woke up Monday morning VERY grumpy and as of this morning I am batting grumpy 100%....

But ya know what??? It's hard to stay grumpy when you are so blessed, and I am blessed, I know I am. So, starting right this minute I denounce grumpiness! Being grumpy is ridiculous, child like behavior and completely unaccetable! If I were my mommy, I would tell me: "Come-on, Nicole, snap out of it, being a crotchety-grumpy, old-mommy is not how you want to end the week. You need to turn that frown upside down!"

So true! I am officially throwing off the worry cloak and saying goodbye to the chip I have on my shoulder. Grumpiness takes too much effort, too much emotion. I am going to focus on happiness. Ahhhh....Relief. Can you feel it??? Happiness.

Circumstances may have brought in some dark clouds....but as for me and my house I am going to let the SUNSHINE in!

P.S. I am sorry Jeffy, for being a poop! Please forgive me!

Dear Nicole,
I can't count the times I have been a poopy mom and wife. We all have those times. Move forward and don't look back. I could always sing to you and I know that would make you feel better. Or maybe that would make you cry!!Sending hugs and smiles your way.
