SNAP OUT OF IT!!!

Do you ever feel like everything, & I mean everything is spinning out of control? This month has been a whirlwind of emotion for me. Maybe it's because I am the mother of three beautiful young girls or because we are in the middle of opening a new store in Park City or because it is hunting season & my husband is gone even more than ususal, which I didn't think could happen at this moment or because my little sister is having complications with her pregnancy or because my other sister, who is also my very best friend, lives in Fairview, Tennessee?

Holy Moly!!!!!!!

Somedays I am so overwhelmed with the yucky, sad, crazy, out of control things in life that I just want to scream really, really loud. Then instantaniously all of this craziness seems to boil over until I become completely irrational & then it hits me, what would I do without the craziness? What would I do without three very young, beautiful, stinky girls who drive me completely insane sometimes? What would I do if Burns Saddlery just stayed "good ol" Burns Saddlery & never grew or expanded? What would I do if my husband never got to do the things that he really loved & enjoyed? What would I do without trials & hardships in my family? What would I do if I didn't have a best friend at all?

I don't really know the answers to all of those questions but I do know this, I would never learn or grow. I would never appreciate the "easy" times. I would never be grateful for the little things that always make life good, like squishy hugs or toot kisses. I would never understand the true meaning of humility & compassion. I would never be able to say, "Snap out of it you big baby & look at everything you have to be grateful for!?!"

So right now I am screaming very loudly, "SNAP OUT OF IT!!!" I know things are getting better right now because I am in control & I choose to "snap out of it."

Oh, and tell Britt congrats on the girl! I love keeping up with her on here too. :) Do they have a name yet? I know it's pretty early, but Eric and I always have our names picked out at the very beginning, so maybe they are like us. And we all knew it would be a girl. ;o)

I like it when people post about the bad days too. It makes us all seem like we are all so much the same. By the way, are you going to the Christmas Retreat? It won't be the same without you? And I think you deserve a day to yourself....
