I'm Trying for Hope

Things are looking up.

ALl I've heard from numerous people is to have hope. So I'm trying. My mom told me more than one time today to have hope that things will be a little better tomorrow than they were today. I like that advice. Things will be a little better tonight than they were today. It's true. I can do that. My mom said that if you lose hope, there is only despair. I know that's true because I've felt it.

However, today is a better day. I have great friends and a great family. I'm so thankful to everyone who has been there for me. I'm thankful for the sweet comments and encouraging words.

My mom came over today and bought me toilet paper (among other things). So we can wipe our bums now. lol.

I don't quite have the burning desire to say that everything is fabulous and that I love everyone and my spirit is on fire but I have a feeling I CAN get there and I'm willing to try. I hope it's enough and that God will help.

I want to be one of the ones who, when the time comes, can stand before God to hear him say "Well done thou good and faithful servant." Maybe He will say something like "Lisa, you did it!" I want that more than anything.

The shower is calling my name. I haven't had one for like three days. That's disgusting huh? Who wants to talk about it? I don't. I do however want to talk about the fact that for today I am okay.


  1. Hey Lisa,

    You're sounding better. I'm so glad that things are going better. Don't loose that hope. I sent you an e-mail yesterday. I hope it doesn't annoy. I can't tell you how much it has helped me. Keep up that optimism. Hang in there. I do wonder if you are having a bit of a postpartum depression too. Always take a shower. There was a time I did that to be happy. It helps. Love ya, Lisa.

  2. Yay, I'm glad everything is better :) I love you.

  3. Ha ha When I read this post I don't know why but it made me think of something my firend told me alst week, from one of the people in The Secret......"I like to think that the whole universe is conspiring to help me" Love it! It made me feel a little better! I'm glad your are doing better, I am too!
