Tired, Crying, and So Happy

Would you believe that this is the first chance I've gotten in a WHOLE WEEK to sit down and blog?
Between designing blogs, work, school starting, and life, I have hardly had a minute to myself.

Right now, I am sitting down, drinking coffee, eating a bagel, and pretending like I have nothing else to do but enjoy.

Sometimes, I desperately need this pretense.  I have to forget all that is going on around me for, say, 30 minutes.  I have to teach myself how to breathe again.

Thanks, mom, for making me so Type A (that's why we get along so well...).

Now, I'm off to read from GivesMeHope, just to have a mini cry here in the coffee shop, and to remember what I love about life.
Here's an entry I read there a month ago that just made me break down (in a good way, that is)...
When I was 8 years old, I was in a car crash and lost my left arm.

For 14 years, I’ve dreaded having to put on my prosthetic arm everyday.

5 months ago, I woke up and went to put my arm on. I found it with a ring on the finger, and a note in the hand that said, “Liz, will you marry me?”

My fiance’s love for every piece of me GMH.
If you need a pick-me-up and a minute to breathe/cry, check out the site.

Until tomorrow (I hope), dear friends!


  1. Thank you for sharing this! Taking time to breathe…so very important!

  2. Your thoughts and the GMH story were just what I needed this morning. Beautiful reminders to breathe and appreciate. Thank you!

  3. Finding the time to blog has been my problem too! Life's too busy! Wow that is such a touching story, I teared up a bit. What a sweet man. Have a great day!!

  4. Thanks for sharing the GMH site...just left there and I'm in tears. It's the good kind. :o)

  5. so nice to see you up here! just remember to enjoy peace & quiet for a while...it so helps!

    and I LOVE gives me hope! Makes me really believe that there is so much beauty out there that you'll never see on the news! :]

  6. Awww..what a precious story! Good for you for taking a much needed time out to relax and unwind.

  7. Thanks for sharing that site and all those amazing stories :)

  8. Good for you! You are SO right: it's important to find that "calm place" somewhere in the midst of chaos just to recharge. For me it's on a swing down by our brook. Feeds my soul like nothing else. Hang in there! Life WILL eventually slow down...I promise!

  9. oh wow that's great! thanks for sharing! I have never heard of that website!

    whew....I am totally type A too, hence why I haven't taken a moment to update my blog in a while either.

    Thanks for the reminder to slow down. :)


Your words make my heart smile.
