Pick Me Up'r

Sometimes I need a pick me up'r...or upper...or up 'er. I am getting fed up with my job and more often than not it puts me in a bad mood.

I don't like to be cranky at all especially around the holidays. Of course when I get home everything disappears for a while. Getting a hug and kiss from my girl always makes me feel better but after homework, dinner and bedtime it's just me and my thoughts again.

There has to be a way to change me and my negative ways of thinking. I don't have many friends but am thankful for the only one I have been able to count on.

Me and this amazing woman have only been friends a short period of time but I feel that God tested me with all the bad friends I've had so that I would recognize the good ones.

She is the only friend of mine that calls me EVERYDAY even if just for a minute and asks how I'm doing rather than running on and on about her problems. Don't get me wrong, I love to be an open ear but I think a good friend returns that favor.

In addition to her I am grateful to have met bloggy friends so quickly. I don't consider myself super funny or anything but you guys have been great as well and it gives me something to look forward to everyday. Your funny, open and honest blogs and comments just make my day.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that when I need one of those Pick Me Up'rs I have to realize that I should be thankful that I am happily married with a beautiful girl. I have a steady career and I have friends that are there beside me either down the street or on the other side of the Internet.

Thank you Dusty, whether you know it or not you have made my life and my daughters life better. Thank you bloggy friends for the things you have and will do in the future.


  1. Better to have one great friend who is always there for you in the way you need than a bunch of mediocre friends. Bloggy friends are great to have...there are so many creative, funny and honest women out there who will make our crazy lives feel "normal" :)

  2. I so agree. I've never been one who has a ton of friends. At least not what I consider good friends...lots of acquaintences, but I kind of just prefer to be alone a lot. I guess I'm a loner....ha! But it's been wonderful to have a few fabulous friends than to have a ton of not so fabulous friends. You are blessed to have her.

    HOpefully things get better at work.

  3. OH goodness!!! You are so special to me as well, as I sit here crying. I am so thankful I have found a friend like you. Thanks for always being there. Hang in there, work is work but as you know there is more to life than just work. Look at that precious girl of yours. Oh honey, have a good day. Thanks God for friends!!!!

  4. This is a great, honest post. Sounds to me that you are one blessed lady, and you remind me that I am too. :)

  5. that's great... everyone needs a great friend... thanks for visiting my blog, I appreciate the comment love... I am off to go read on more of your blog....
