April the Grouch

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I have been a bit of a grouch the past few days for no reason at all. I'd like to blame it on PMS but I know that there are other factors as well. I bought some Reese's hearts, a deep red nail polish and a new loofah last night so that made me feel a little better. I also had some desperately needed Kaylie time, which always helps. Even if she just needs to listen to me complain for an hour she's always willing to be there for me. Being upset over little things and letting my stresses of life get the best of me is what has made me a grouch. I've been focusing on little things that shouldn't bother me instead of the important things. I haven't been being grateful for the help I've been receiving. There are many wonderful people in my life that are trying to help me and alleviate my stress and what do I do about it? I get mad. So dumb! After thinking about it all I've realized that Satan is making me feel the way I have been. He's making me become offended and be upset over dumb insignificant things that I should be grateful for. I need to focus my attention on the things that matter most. I am committing to myself right now that no matter what happens I will show gratitude and I will learn to look for the good in everything instead of being selfish and stubborn like I have been the past few days. I have so many good things going for me in my life right now that I shouldn't have the time to complain - there's just no room for it! I am engaged to an absolutely amazing man who loves spending time with me and puts up with me when I am a grouch. He knows how to handle me when I'm in a funk and he knows how to cheer me up like no one else can. He's always there for me even if all I need is a hug or someone to vent to. He means the world to me and I don't know what I'd do without him. I'm so glad I don't have to worry about being without him - he's gonna be mine for forever!


  1. So...can I just say I LOVED our little outing last night. It was needed. And you saved me! You have no idea. Perfect timing. Love ya girl! I'm excited for you! Keep your chin up. You rock!

  2. It was definitely needed - for both of us! Thanks dear!! :)
