Thankful Thursday

Some weeks I need this more than others. This is one of those weeks. Right after the holidays I promise to get together with my doctor and see what I need to deal with - health, weight management, menopausal, depression - all of it. I'm feeling really low and nothing short of curling up is helping. Since curling up and ignoring life isn't much of an option - I'm working my way through. Sometimes, I am reminded of what a blessed life I lead by remembering the small things in life that bring a smile to my face - here's a few of my favorites *Kisses & Hugs from the Beau Man *Watching Lucy run around with a toy hanging out of her mouth *Catching a glimpse of the sunrise through my new sitting room windows *a clear morning drive that gives me a beautiful view of the mountains *cuddling with hubby for the few minutes that snooze allows me each morning *the lights on our Christmas Tree - even if it is outside *putting favorite ornaments on the tree *cute teacup ornaments with faces, arms & legs (bought one last night) *the smell of coffee *internet friends *opening holiday greetings Hope your life is filled with many, many small things that bring a smile to your face when you're feeling blue - and even when you're not!

  3. Gaylen, I think your seeing your DR is good idea. Hate to tell you but you are at the age when premeno starts and lord knows it does "wonders" with your hormones, moods and feelings. Also depression can cause physical issues as well. Because of issues with hormone replacement medications, my GYN subscribed Wellbutrin to help with emotional mood swings. Truly helped. I am finally pass the pre, during and now in post menopause and glad I made it to the "otherside".

    Plus this is the time of season when we are suppose to feel so happy, sometimes this holiday season does create more stress and not all that happy feelings.

    Try to do something nice for yourself each day.

  4. Gaylen,
    You asked on my blog about the labels links. I figured this was the easiest place to answer to be sure you saw it. Go to the page where you can add/edit Page Elements by drag/drop. Choose to add a new element and a window will open with a list of choices of things you can add (or already have). The labels list is one of those choices.

    I hope you're feeling back to normal soon. I think Linda has some good advice for you. This time of year, coupled with hormones, and all h-e-double-hockey-sticks breaks out.

  5. Glad to hear that your "internet friends" are one of the things that make you feel better! Take care of yourself.
