I've been a little under the weather, lately.

Tiredness, lack of ambition, tears, aches and pains,
roller coaster of emotions...
I like to say
it's a sign of the *age*

Some
of you will completely understand;
Some of you will have no clue.




I was totally unprepared for the difficulty
of hormonal upheaval,
the empty house,
this time of change.


Some of you will say
"this too shall pass"
and life will be good again.
But for now,
I am camping here:


Tomorrow is a new day.

I'm praying for you. Feeling down is no fun and sometimes it's so hard to find the good things. I'm praying it changes.

Oh my heavens, do I ever understand - on so many levels, Rene.

Tomorrow *is* another day and His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.

I'm praying for you, as the Lord leads. <><

Thank you for your kind words about my MIL's picture. She really was the sweetest person I've ever known in my life. My heart aches.

That is a beautiful scripture and it just takes all the pain and heartache away. It blessed me this morning and that was exactly what I needed to see.

Keeping you close in thought and prayer. So thankful that we know God is our strength in time of trouble.
Hugs to you today!

Oh my goodness Miss Gracie! I don't think you are as "aged" as I, but this past weekend, I have (also) experienced some of the upheavals of that certain age!

You have my sympathies --- and don't you enjoy "foggy brain syndrome"??????

tommiejo said...

For us ladies, it's always something throughout our lives isn't it? I'm going through my own "adventures", so I feel your pain~hope you feel chipper soon!

I do like your photographs with these subtle grey and white teints!! Hope your hormonal depression will be over soon!!

You may be hormonal but your blog is a joy, I've certainly enjoyed it today. I guess misery loves company so I even enjoyed knowing that someone else has those "days". Your photography is wonderful.

Miss Gracie, I can't believe your going thru this too. I'm 51 at the moment until april, and I think I'm going thru some strange things. I just can' t get it in gear. Not only that, my husband is laid off, problems with the car, the dryer doesn't work, it just goes on and on. I'm getting tired of everything at the moment, and I'm hoping very soon this will all go away. Well I hope everything will pick up for you as well as myself. Take Care Girl!

I soooo know what you mean,just about when we think things are ok,,then, boom,,menopause,,,I am 56 and I am on the other side for the most part,,I think,,how about those weird hairs growing in weird places! Have a good laugh and a good cry, do see the doctor and get Christine Northrups book.I may have spelled that wrong. You will be ok. cast your troubles too, God is holding your hand real tight. Women friends are here for you.
