What a great post, Trina. I hope you found it helpful to get it all down 'on paper'. Sometimes when I have all those swirling thoughts in my mind, I write, and then I feel a bit better. And sometimes just knowing that others feel the same way can help. So I just wanted to say, 'I get it'. Life can be hard, and other people can make it harder through their words and actions. My faith is what gets me through those hard times, just knowing that I am not walking through this life alone. And of course good friends, and awesome family ... those are things that lift me up and help me focus on the good stuff again. Thanks for writing this, and for sharing so honestly from your heart. Hugs!


I totally agree with Hannahs comment. Without a strong christian faith, I would fall flat so many times."What doesn't kill me makes me stronger."I often sing{to myself} a Robbie Williams song "You think that I'm strong, you're wrong"etc.Keep your chin up and don't let others negativity get to you.

life is full of ups and downs....just annoying that those downs are pain related for you!!!

Yep, life can throw curly things at us, but you know what, we are strong and we get through it all and lessone were not meant to be learned all at once, otherwise why still have the ability to learn? Even at my greatly advanced age I am still learning!!!
See you at SENZ. Didn't take a class, probably all full by the time I thought about it, but will pop by to say 'hello'.
