A Grateful Heart

Reaching out isn't the easiest thing to do when you're in the weeds...

Marsh trail only 5 minutes from my house.

Today is a great day! I’m feeling so grateful this day for my family, my life, for where I live, great health, and good friends. I took a walk only a 5 minute drive from my house and I was awed by the beauty of this trail. Everything wasn’t perfect, though. We only got a little way down before I noticed that the road was washed out, no doubt from the recent storms in the area. #matthew#matthew #irma#irma #florence#florence #michael#michael. Lots of storms lately! I found myself thinking, “wow, they just keep spending all this money rebuilding and shoring up, over and over again. Why do they keep doing this?” Well, it reminds me of problems in life. The problems never stop. They keep coming at us, and we keep fixing them. We usually don’t do it alone, either. We have friends and family, and our faith to help us figure it out.

“ Julie, I’m in the weeds. I’m in the weeds in a bad way.”

I found myself thinking, “wow, they just keep spending all this money rebuilding and shoring up, over and over again. Why do they keep doing this?” Well, it reminds me of problems in life. The problems never stop. They keep coming at us, and we keep fixing them. We usually don’t do it alone, either. We have friends and family, and our faith to help us figure it out. One of my great friends recently told me, “Julie, I’m in the weeds. I’m in the weeds in a bad way.” Reaching out isn’t the easiest thing to do when you’re in the weeds, but it says something about your character if you are the one people reach to when “in the weeds.” #grateful#grateful. Lately, there has been too much suicide, anxiety, depression, strife, and loneliness in the world. I want to take today to acknowledge that we are ALL “in the weeds” with life going up and down, up and down -over and over again. I want to be there for people in my life to help solve the problems, and I want to feel comfortable asking for a hand when I’m the one “in the weeds”. #ithappenstoeveryone#ithappenstoeveryone. Life is messy, beautiful, unpredictable, and confusing all at the same time. And no one is perfect. Everyone goes through the weeds, everyone. To me, life is always better with help when you need it. We will always have to navigate the problems, we will always rebuild, and what goes down will always come back up. Don’t go it alone. Ask for help. Life is good!
