Life



I don't think that there has been a day where my eyes have not filled up with tears since I have been living here. I usually have a moment to my self where I start to think of my (old) home, friends, family, and my kids little friends, and start to cry, but then they are quickly wiped away by my reality of having to continue to move on and realize this is my new home. I do like it here in Arizona (Everyone here has been so welcoming) but shouldn't I be allowed to feel sad every once in a while?? I feel bad feeling bad. A friend who I miss SO much told me a while ago, just stop and count your blessings. I realized how blessed I am. I have so much to be thankful for, even though I know some days are just sad and lonely, or not what I want them to be, I am blessed.

You are absolutely allowed to feel sad! I feel sad all the time about having to leave my closest friends and YOU!! Change is hard, that's the truth. I love you!!

I've been in TX for 2 years and it's still hard sometimes! I go through days where I'm just sad, and I have to actively remind myself to choose to be happy. Because my family needs me to be happy. My kids need a happy mom, and Keith needs a happy wife. Most importantly, I need me to be happy. Change can really suck sometimes. Life can suck sometimes. Choose to be happy anyway. I love ya!

Anyone who has ever had to move will fully sympathize with you. I STILL get teary when I think of Turkey, and that move was over 5 years ago. You are such a fun person and you have a wonderful little family. I'm sure you'll make lots of new friends and soon it will feel like home.

I SO love these pictures!! Little Diesel is just a hunk! I still get really sad on days I think about you guys too much, as well! I really don't have a pedicure, diet coke running friend anymore :( Lets just plan on a visit sometime in the near future! And yes, you are totally allowed to cry, get upset, feel lonely...then, like you said- count those blessings and realize how wonderful life is! You are a strong and incredible person and you can make any situation pleasant! Keep your chin up and your diet coke close!! Love yoU!!!
