It's going to be ok

I never realized how much I say, "It's going to be ok."  I truly believe it is always going to be ok.  It may not be exactly how I would like it to, but it is always ok. 

I have had a bit of a tough week or so.  My boss, who I love, called me a little over a week ago to let me know that her mother had a heart attack.  I knew she was upset and crying and the first thing out of my mouth was, it's going to be ok.  She gave me a list of things she needed me to take care of for her while she was gone.  I got it all done and her mom IS ok after open heart surgery.  How do I know it is going to be ok?  I don't know exactly, I just do.  I guess it is faith.  I have FAITH it is going to be ok. 

I think back to when my dad passed away, it was the most horrible thing that had happened to me at that point.  It was hard, but I made it through.  I think of all the good things that came out of that horrible situation.  I found out how important my family is to me.  I live 4 hours away, it's easy to be disconnected.  I found out who my true friends are, they didn't try to make my dad's death about them.  I found a wonderful church home that lifts me up and makes me a better person.

Was my dad's death a bright and shiny spot in my life, absolutely not.  Am I ok?  I sure am.  It took me a while to get there, but I made it!

Snow Day!

It's a snow day!  An extra day at home to get all the things you needed to get done but don't have time for.  WRONG!  It is an extra day at home in comfy clothes on the couch doing nothing!  It is glorious!  D still had to go to work, so it is just me and the pets at home.  That's ok, because they are lazier than me.  They are both sleeping the day away!  Benny doesn't even want to go outside to potty, I put the leash on him, open the door, and he just stands there looking at me like really?!  Yeah dude, really!  I am thinking of taking a nap in a few minutes and just being a bum for the rest of the day.  It's a hard life, but someone has to do it!
