Next Phase, Please.

Okay. That's It. I've been thinking about it, and I've come to the conclusion that I really need a change of attitude.

Things have been hitting me pretty hard, emotionally, since Gwendolyn was born, but I think I'm due for a breaking point. Anyone looking at my life would think I have it made...and they would be right. There is so much to be enjoyed and so many blessings given to me. The things I've been upset about are not even bad things...just normal things.

Of course, I know there are more "bad attitude" blogs in my future, and that I cannot simply "Will" myself to change, but the Holy Spirit lives in me...and that makes all the difference. For now, I am going to focus on thinking about "...whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable..," as it says is Philippians 4:8.

I am going to focus on looking at the beautiful face of my daughter; whether it's smiling or screaming. I am going to hold her and try not to be so bothered by the fact that she always wants me to. I know this time is precious and short. And, she's just so darn cute!

Furthermore, I welcome anyone who would like to, from time to time, remind me of this!
