I am betrothed to a true Knight-in-shining armour

Been in a funk for several days now, mainly depressed about my weight and parish situation. Can't seem to pull out of it and at the same time, I realize that it is also impacting my family. My youngest quietly came up to me this morning and said nothing until I said "good morning" which wasn't a really enthusiastic one at that. She didn't want anything, or so she said, but I know her. I know she wanted me to be happy and show her that, but I didn't. I let her down.

Turning off the computer for most of the day due to another issue that has me depressed, my room and the rest of the house is in utter disorder, including my sewing room that before blogging my life away, I created dresses, costumes, bags, and curtains, and repaired things no one would even believe could be repaired. I'm a whiz behind the sewing machine....for the most part. But I turned on the computer to check our emails for my dh errrr knight-in-shining armour and found this:

Dear E-beth:

Here is something to think about when you feel down about things. Just remember that you have made this one scientist boy a very happy person and have brought three wonderful human beings into this world!!

I love you,


Now, since having a good cry, I need to go make him a really nice dinner.

Awe that is so sweet. It is the little things that really touch one's heart.

Will keep you in my prayers about the hurricane, scary things! Thank goodness we dont have them where I live, we fear bush fires.

Peace to you Ebeth:)

Aw, I wish I could have brought you some tea and sympathy.

I understand about blogging your life away. The computer sucks me right in. I need boundaries.

You do have a prince! Lucky girl.

Do we need to chat?

What a sweet message. You are blessed to have a husband like that. I will keep you in my prayers. I hope you start feeling better soon.


Doug and Elizabeth said...

Thank you all,

Yes my knight is the best, I need to be better equipped to tackle my moods. Prayer is good and I thank you ladies for your prayers.

Feeling a little better today.

Awwe, that was a sweet note from your Knight in Shining Armour. Don't worry, Ebeth, this is temporary. Tomorrow is a much BRIGHTER Day! Be happy, look around you at the love. God is so good. Grace abounds. Ask for it!

God bless and hugs,

I'm so behind on everything...but I have those days, too, and a knight who's a better pick-me-up than even the best cup of joe in the world. I'm thinking about you...

God bless.
