Last night I got hammered. 
Not the drunk kind. 
The emotional WTF ~ didn't see that coming kind.  
My head is swimming in thoughts... 
how... why... when... what. 
I am trying to stay claim and use the wonderful coping skills I have learned over the past couple of years. 

I have been praying really hard, 
and I am trying to pray the right way. 
Not asking to make this all go away, 
asking for guidance and understanding. 
Asking for my head to be clear and my heart strong.

I am putting my "Big Girl Panties" on, 
and dealing with what is at hand.

I don't have time to have a pity party.

Tears flow, but I am stronger than I give myself credit for.

Sometimes, it is difficult to understand why some are forced into difficult situations.  
It's hard not to get upset or even jealous.  
I must trust that all things have a reason. 
I must trust that God would not give me more than I can handle.

love jan

Prayers are being said for whatever the trouble is. My Mom always quoted "that which does not kill you makes you stronger". Some times I wish God didn't want to make me stronger. The going thru any trouble is awful but it does make us stronger.
