I am tired. So tired of a lot of things. Tired of financial issues, tired of job issues, tired of health issues of me, my family and my friends, tired of the political drama, tired of taking 2 steps forward to be shoved 3 steps back, tired of never seeming to get ahead and rush rush rushing everywhere. My good friend Elizabeth wrote a quote on her blog that made me stop. I stopped dead in my tracks. “You were not 'in the moment,' you were trying to get 'to' the moment." That is exactly how I feel. I feel like my life is leading me. Leading me around by a leash ( or a noose ) and I’m just bumbling along following wherever it takes me but wishing desperately to get ‘to the moment’. My prayer – and please pray with me – is that I start taking time to smell the roses, appreciate THIS moment instead of wishing my life away, and I so very much just want to be happy and content.

On a lighter note, I did the Lupus walk yesterday with Elizabeth, Lizzie, Elizabeth’s husband, daughter, son and father-in-law. It was a wonderful day. We walked the 1/2 mile then the 2 mile and ate lunch in Shaw Park thanks to Elizabeth. I just wish that the Lupus Foundation would garner the kind of support that the Susan G Komen Foundation does for their annual walks. I’m sure they started small too, so lets pass the word around and get awareness and support for our friends and family members living with Lupus. I am hoping we do this every year and make it an annual thing so lets do it!! Lupus sucks.

I agree! Thanks for walking with me, even the additional 1/2 mile. Ha, ha!

Tonight I listened to "I Guess That's Why They Call it the Blues" by Elton John. I love it because the first words are, "Don't wish it away, don't look at it like it's forever. Between you and me I could honestly say that things can only get better."


I burned a CD for you tonight (before I even read your post) and I'll try to drop it off for you tomorrow at work. It should help lift your spirits! Love you!
