I'M TRYING MY BEST

My plan is to read your blog posts. I don't like to miss them and I will get caught up. For now I find my anxiety is keeping me from doing several things that I normally enjoy. I do have an anxiety pill I can take if necessary but try not to use them. Right now I find great comfort in hiding in my office watching Hallmark Christmas movies. 

I'm stressing about Christmas and I've never felt anything like this before. I find myself it tears throughout the day. So be patient with me. I love to blog so I'm not going anywhere. I'm not asking for pity, I just want you to know I am okay and I will be around to visit each and every one of you. 

Here's a little joy for your day......

This can be a really hard time of year and this one especially. So much change from tradition and not being able to be around the people you love. I guess all we can do is pray for better days ahead.
James sure is a cutie. I imagine he'll be super excited about Christmas this year.

Precious pic of precious James. Sorry you are feeling the tears I know this virus is kicking up a lot of hard feelings and how much you miss being able to hold James. We watch your governor on TV this morning begging people to stay home and to help to fight this virus and we also so the death toll for yesterday so today we canceled our appointments at the YMCA for the next two weeks and we're going to wait and see what happens

James is such a cutie! That's a great picture of him. Is that by their home? Take care of yourself Debby. I always say blogs will be here, they aren't going anywhere. And I'm not adding any blog posts this whole month; taking a mini break :)

Hugs to you!

I'm so sorry Debby. I can totally relate. I have gone though so many different phases through all of this mess we're in. I think many of us suffer from some anxiety and depression on and off and it's no wonder! That is such a sweet photo of little James. Hang in the Debby, there is a little light at the end of the tunnel.

Sorry you're feeling so blue and hope you feel better soon. Praying that God will touch you with peace. Deuteronomy 31:8 says, The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Deep breaths ... baby steps ... and prayers. I think kindness begins at home, while looking in the mirror. HUGS!

Don't stress it...I promise I won't get mad if you don't come to my blog. Read when you want or don't. I was rarely on last month. I'm learning to do it when I feel like it and not to feel guilt if I don't. After all I started this to have fun. Relax and enjoy those movies. We're watching them a lot too. At least one every evening and sometimes more. Just take care of yourself. Love that picture of your grandson. James is just such a cutie!

I am sorry you are struggling with anxiety. I think I was too right before and after the election. Maybe you should take your medicine. I will keep you in prayer. James is so cute!

Do not worry girl - take care of yourself and start to feel better. It is understandable so be easy on yourself.

(((HUGS ))) I understand..
I know you are missing James and that makes the holidays even more difficult.
Thinking of you and praying for Peace that passes all understanding.

I'm just now catching up on my bloglovin' feed. This post makes my heart hurt and I have put your name in my prayer journal to pray for you throughout the holidays. Keep doing the things that you love. Take care.
