This is my mantra each and every day:


Even when I’m feeling the blackest and grumpiest and farthest away from anything that looks or sounds positive, a little voice peeps up in the background of my head: don’t give up! don’t lose hope! you can make it! really, you can! I know you can! you’ll make it through this!

Sometimes I feel like it’s only words I’m hearing from that little peep-y voice, but the funny thing is, if I hear the words enough, I start to believe them, if only just a little bit.

And that’s all that matters.


Thanks to my friend, Barbara, for posting this pic on Facebook today. It was exactly what I needed at exactly the moment I needed it.

And thanks to all my friends whose thoughts and prayers I’m in every day. I know it’s your voices I hear in my head that tell me to keep on, to not give up, to hang in there. I appreciate you all  ♥

    I swiped the post, but I’m happy it gave you something to write about and served as a reminder to how strong you are no matter what. At times we all need that reminder!

      Thanks again for the reminder – it’s too easy to lurk in the darkness. We’re all a bunch of borrowers, Barbara! I’m glad to call you my friend and fellow borrower 😀

    Yes, Lois, prayers do work. Charlie had a number of people praying for him, and everything turned out wonderfully. And yes, you are in my prayers and thoughts, knowing before long things will “brighten up”. My Love and Hugs! Lorna

      Thank you, Lorna! Charlie has been in my prayers as well, and you, too. I’m glad everything is working out for him!

      I’m just trying to keep track of all the stuff going on here and frankly, I’m overwhelmed with it – I’m just taking it one moment at a time. Big hugs to you both <3
