Tough Times


I need some POSITIVE words in my life right now. Desperately.
Most of you know that we are still in the midst of dismantling my parents' house.
It is emotionally draining. Physically too...but I am not able to handle much of the physical work...so I am the designated errand runner...the research person...the preparer of meals person.
It has been such an emotional time. Praying for strength.
The girlz are wondering just WHAT is going on in their world as we are usually with them 24/7 and we have not been home much this week at all.
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best,and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!

ah, sweetie, I am so sorry you are going through a tough time. It must be a time of emotional upheaval, to demolish a place that is so connected to your life, family and past.

Sending you hugs and strength!

Yes, I can understand what you're feeling right now because of going through all of my mothers things after she passed away. It was so emotional.

I love the quote by Christian D. Larson!

Much X to you and the girlz!

Sending you purrs and strength as you deal with this task. We're sure it feels overwhelming at times but only do what you can. Hug the girls for a little pick me up! :)

Ruby said...

Oh, I'm so sorry things are overwhelming right now. Remember to always take a break. Always. Play with the pups, read a book chapter, do a word search, read some bloggies ~ no matter what it is, when you feel like your gonna rip your hair out, or just start crying, take a break. (well, sometimes a good cry makes everything better!)
Sending you some AireZens, and some good thoughts!
Kisses,
Ruby

My Mom died in '96 and my Dad continued to live in the house till his death in 2002. Believe me, I cried every night while cleaning out the house...it's tough and I don't wish it on Anyone.

One thing about life is that things always will change and not always how we want them! These life changes are tough. Be gentle with yourself. You will make it through this. It won't be this bad forever. We will cross our paws for you!

Dear Jeanne, Although I didn't experience this when my parents passed, I did recently when we were with hubby's siblings. It was so stressful for me but hubby walked in peace(I'm thankful for this). Girl, you are such an incredible person and I'm so thankful to know you. I will be praying for peace that passes understanding for you and yours.
Sending big hugs your way.

I'm a little late getting here, but I will keep you in my prayers that you find and have the strength for the tasks--I know how hard these times can be, I had to do the same thing several years ago. Take care, and know positive vibes are being sent from my corner of Virginia!
