When the going gets tough........

Monday, February 12, 2018

I would finish the above statement but the going is just getting tougher. It has been whirlwind of one bad thing after another with no hope in sight. I feel numb and broken by circumstances out of my control. I would prefer to stay in my protected field of tulips but alas, the tulips are no more. Today is a new day, and I realize that I have to start building and healing my own hurt and continue on the path that came before the darkness. My path includes sunshine, smiles, laughter and support. Fortunately, in the last three days, eating was never an issue. Where I would normally reach for everything bad, I had no hunger at all. When I did eat I made very good choices and ate just enough to sustain my health. I stayed plugged into SP throughout and found comfort in what has now become the only place that I can find it. I am encouraged by the words shared by other members, it has been a salve to my open wounds and for this I am eternally grateful. While the darkness prevails, so to does the flicker of the candle I have lit. I will overcome! Thank you for your continued support.

    The Lord never gives you more than you can handle but sometimes we wish the Lord didn't have quite so much confidence in us! Hang in there!

    Keep on keeping on!

    I'm sorry that things have been difficult lately. I hope the get better soon. You can get through this. It is temporary. It may not seem like it while you are in the middle of it but you can make it through this.
