Oh it's amazing how life can drag you down some days and lift you up the next. Life has been a little hard for us lately, but we're getting thru, we're trying. Trying is all I can ask for, and all I need.
This is a vague post, I know.

So I've stumbled upon a blog: written by a woman named Julia. She writes honestly about personal things, and I was interested becuz she has had many miscarriages and I just can't imagine.

So tell me your story...

There is blog called "So Tell Me Your Story", it is a scrapbook challenge blog. I've been checking it out for a while now but just haven't gotten around to doing a challenge yet, this month I decided to jump in. The challenge is to make a layout about your favorit quote/poem/whatnot and explain-just words, no pictures. Here's what I came up with. Mine is a digital scrap page.

The kit is called Rainy Day Collection by Retrodiva Designs

There is some pain, some hurt that doesn't go away. It just seems to sit there. When it first happens it fills your whole body, you tingle, your stomach is in knots, your legs don't feel like they can even move. You want to just curl up in ball and forget that you even exist. But you can't, you've got children to look after and job to go to cuz you have bills to pay. So you get up, you manage to put one foot in front of the other and move thru your day. It's like your numb and not feeling anything. At least until another blow hits and then someone you feel worse than before, even tho you didn't think that was possible. Paint a smile on your face, pretend everything ok. When you're along you can let it all out, cry yourself to sleep, wonder how you let yourself get to this point in life. Why don't you feel like you deserve better. Your kids, they are your light, the bright part of every day.
So get up, put one foot in front of the other, try to feel better until something else hits, cuz it's only a matter of time.
