"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

It's not often I spring a leak...who has the time?
But apparently I was due, and so on the couch in my parents livingroom, I had a brief blubbering session. It lasted a few minutes, while mom sat by and lent me a tissue and a few words of encouragement.
I'm all better now....just needed to let it out. It was one part pent-up frustration, one part discouragement and one part out-of-the-blue.
Sometimes the reality of day-to-day living just looks bleak. But, usually it's not as bleak as I make it out to be. I just forget for a few minutes.
Thanks for holding my hand, saying a prayer and sending me back on my way, mom! The bootstraps are pulled up and I'm choosing JOY for the rest of today...tomorrow's a new day.
"This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy."
