A Christmas light display’s take on "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima," DH and I’s first Christmas light drive-through display together a long while ago. One of his favorites.
Pssst ... anyone have any more holiday pictures to share?
The itch to complain when life gets you down is one powerful itch, isn’t it? I’ve been trying SO hard not to scratch that itch, lately, trying to look at things on the positive side. (Mostly because of you guys, so thank you!)
But even when I try to frame things in a positive manner, sometimes a snarky little voice can’t help but take a sideways, backwards, hidden stab at complaining, you know?
There are just some days I want life to be easier. And it seems like everyone else handles things so much better and more gracefully than I do, and I wonder how.
Anyways, I firmly believe that if you keep your eye on the ball and just take one more step towards that ball every day, then you’ll get to the damn ball. And then you can start rolling it.
There are always points when you feel like you are not going to get out of a mess, when you feel like things aren’t going to get better, when you feel like there’s no clear path.
But you just gotta take one more step.
Okay, now that I’ve given myself a pep talk, can I tell you I’ve been craving Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, etc.? We’re talking a craving as strong as chocolate, which for me means I’d be willing to get out of bed at two a.m., get dressed, and drive ten minutes to the nearest all-night store just for chocolate.
Ever have a really strong craving for a particular novel or genre?
