Fighting Back :)

Sorry for such a downer of a post yesterday.  It was just one of those days where it seems that nothing is going right.  It has felt like we have been picking ourselves up, dusting ourselves off, just to get knocked back down over and over again.  The past few months have been bad, but honestly, the past 24 months haven't been great.

Yesterday I didn't feel like dusting myself off.  I felt like I was done fighting.  After some reflection and thought (and a few tears), I realized that no matter how bad things seem, I still have a lot going right.  So I am dusting myself off, strapping on my boxing gloves and moving forward.  I won't give up without a fight.
The car can be fixed.  My hubby is safe.  My son is healing well from his brain injury.  My daughter didn't get hurt in her accident.  My dad is doing well.  Our financial problems will work themselves out in time.  My middle son can go back to the doctor for more tests if things don't improve.  My husband has great doctors that will biopsy his growth and then tell us what needs to be done.  When I look at my problems in that way instead of how I did yesterday, it doesn't seem so bad. It all seems manageable.

A little perspective is a good thing.
