    Boy, today has been a bad day from the beginning! Ugh I can't handle much more. Got woken up this morning by the guys hired to trim the trees away from the power lines, they needed to completely take down the 3 huge trees in my front yard, now my from yard is completely bare and there is such a mess!(i loved those trees!) Then one of my parakeets died, and then to top it all off Dh and I went to grab a bite to eat and now my car is leaking antifreeze and not heating UGH! And I won't have no idea what it is or how much it will cost to fix until tomorrow! This all may sound petty to some, but its been a really bad year this year, things been happening ALL year! I just can't deal with anymore! Please someone, pray my luck will start to change for the better sometime soon..... :cry:

    I'm praying for you MaineGirl............I have had bad days also that I end up crying most of the day..........but it passes.

    I try to think a positive thought everyday and when something goes wrong............I think.......it happened for a reason.

    Just keep a positive attitude. You would be surprised at how it works!! Good luck and you are in my prayers.

    I am so sorry that things are not going well for you MainGirl79. You definitely need to do some quilting - OR go to my NEW favorite fabric store - Mardens (I just went to the one in Sanford recently)!!

    anyways . . .

    Two years ago, when our life was turned upside down, I was sooooo stressed out. My DH told me everyday, that we needed to take one step at a time and ALWAYS "go in the direction of goodness" - meaning never look at the individual ups and downs but focus on a target (whatever that may be) any keep stepping towards it.

    We did and our life has settled down -

    I keep thinking God has a better plan for me, but the bad things just keep on happening
    Take my DH recommendations - (I know how you feel) - but take one day at a time and go forward.

    Life is a series of ups & downs.......!!!!)))))))))

    If you can walk, get out of bed on your own, brush your teeth, etc., think how much luckier you are than a lot of folks. I was in a nursing home for Rehab after bilateral total knee replacement surgery in July & that did open my eyes. When I'm feeling sorry for myself now, I thank the Good Lord that I'm home, back taking care of myself & how thankful I am to all the caregivers I had.

    I'm sorry to go on & on; however, I encourage you to take a walk & be thankful for all the small daily gifts we take for granted. I will be praying you feel better soon. Just imagine a rubber ball when you bounce it, first big bounces, then it starts rolling in a straight line, until someone picks it up & drops it again.

    Hang in there. Just put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Sometimes that is all we can do.

    I'm sorry you're having a rough patch. One thing I do that seems to keep me a little less stressed is keeping a "I'm thankful for..." journal. Every day, especially on a bad day, I write down one thing I'm thankful for. It helps me.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I usually don't vent like this, but its just been a bad year ALL year. I just needed to vent.

    And please don't get me wrong, I am thankful for the everday things that most take for granted, it's just this year has been one thing right after another.

    Dh keeps telling me it will all be ok and trying to reassure me, but I know him well enough that I can sense that he is feeling the strain as well. Thanks again everyone, I love all my quilt board family!

    I find that bad things often run in threes which means that you should be good to go. Chin up, even if the neck is dirty (that's an old German saying). Sending you happy thoughts from CA.

    To quote Admin:

    "All prayer requests should go into PDA.

    All "negative" personal announcements should go into PDA, where people who know you well can follow up.

    If you are experiencing a personal crisis, a tragedy, a serious illness, or if you just want to vent or if you need support of others because of a personal problem, then PDA is a more appropriate place to post. "


    lets' all encourage MainGirl76 to start a PDA so we can rally 'round and give her lots of shoulders to lean on.
