optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

As the sun came up, the
fog lifted.  It was an amazing morning
I don’t know what happened today, but I feel like a fog lifted. It was so weird, I was driving home talking to a great friend and it was funny because I don’t know at what point my head was out of the fog that it’s been in, but I felt a little more like my old self.

Earlier in the day someone had basically said to me “you’re too strong for this” and it’s true. I’m not the kind of person that adversity happens to and I just bow out and cry. Well, I cry, but I NEVER bow out. That’s what people like about me, I am strong. It’s not that I’m not loving, but I am strong. And that will never change about me. So, who knows what tomorrow will bring, but I will put on the gloves, and get back to whatever life decides to throw my way.  I've always been in it to win it... that hasn't changed. 

None of this means that I still don’t feel heartbreak or that I’m not annoyed that someone broke into my house, but it does mean that life will continue to go on, and I will be strong.

I decided that I may even put up a few Christmas decorations, I picked up gingerbread houses to decorate. I hope my niece and nephew will want to, but I know Phyllis does, so that’s cool!

I’m also excited to go see Tom this weekend! We are getting away and I’m excited! (we’ve got someone staying here this weekend so don’t get any ideas). I’m excited to go relax and see Indy, and go to the zoo!

I also got the plastic on 5 windows tonight. I told you, I am feeling better! I read that you can add bubble wrap for insulation to keep the warmth in… it’s funny because I was thinking it’s probably been so warm because my crappy windows have been making it possible for me to heat the outside… I’m glad to get some of that work done! I wonder if I can figure out how to replace my windows myself next spring/summer.

I’m feeling like I will be shining in no time! 

Sending love!

I LOVE YOU!!! And, I am so excited to 'hear' the joy return to your voice! I know there will be hard times ahead and bad days, but it is just so much easier when we can keep perspective. Have a blessed Thanksgiving and a safe and wonderful get-away weekend!!!
