Trying

Trying is a word I’ve used too much lately.  Truth is, I don’t know if what I’ve been doing is really trying.  More like not trying.  My ankle is giving me some trouble so I’m going to work in a Dr. appt with a specialist to see what might be able to be done.  I use it as an excuse too often not to do anything…say I’ll TRY again tomorrow.

I am in a funk…told you I get them here and again.  I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with events around here and have been TRYING to do it all.  I’m not doing so well at it.  I am re-examining what I can and cannot do.  It is hard to think about giving something up that you’ve done for so long but know it’s probably best…and even harder to make that idea known to your spouse who believes doing everything is possible.  And it is possible, it’s the cost that is where my questions lie.  For now, that’s where I’m going to leave this…as an idea that I will bring up with my DH and have a  heart to heart.

I’m also going to stop TRYING to eat too much candy and just call it quits for the rest of the month.  I did so much better when I just knew it was not on my list of things I could eat.  I’ve had too much junk and feel it in my sluggish attitude.

I have been focusing on how much I can and can’t eat, what I have and haven’t done.  What I’ve done wrong…not really on what I’ve done right.  I am TRYING to fix my attitude. We sang carols by candlelight the other night with a group we run.  Reading and singing the words was special – focusing on the reason we celebrate Christmas.  I plan on working harder to keep that focus with me and celebrate the birth of my Savior, Jesus Christ.  After all, without him, I am nothing.  With Him all things are possible.  Thank goodness I have the chance to try and try again because of HIM.

Christmas Blessings to you all!
