A few years ago if someone told me bad months would pass, I’d have wanted to punch them in the throat.
Then for the past two months I had the sub job from hell, my father-in-law died, another one of my family members began to lose their marbles, one of our sinks hit the skids, the dog now has a lump on her back, one kid got rejected from a club they had really wanted to join, I dealt with church moving grief and we continue to have dish wars that often end in me feeling like I am either too hard, too soft but most of all… not eating on clean flatware.
But I can honestly say that through it all, I have held on. Because I knew that this, too, shall pass.
And whatever you are going through, if you can hold on to that for tonight, I can promise tomorrow will get better.
Until next time,
Happily Ticked Off Tip #44: All that stuff you’re worried about? Stop and breathe. This too shall pass.

Some months are just worse than orhers… but we do survive
I’ve enjoyed your posts, LA. You are a great example of just going going going and doing your best. Thank you.
Thank you!! That’s all we can do!
“but most of all… not eating on clean flatware.” Bwaaaaaaa haaaaa haaaa!!!!!
So true, if I can only REMEMBER during the challenging, awful, horrible times that “This too shall pass” it makes it so much better, but sometimes those thoughts never make it through the walls of sheer panic. These are the kinds of reminders I need to write on a sticky note with a Sharpie.
Jinger – I like the Sharpie idea. You can’t erase it!
