Stressless ..stress less ...less stress ?

Tough decisions.
Who cares ...really.

Some days I just want to crawl under the blankets and hide from the world ...since burying my head in the sand is not as pleasant an option!

I saw a poster

I said to myself "I can manage at least a few of these every day" ...

5 positive things ...
  1. The beautiful friend who sent me a $urpri$e gift depsite her own turmoil.
  2. The small wild things who slept the whole night in their own beds last night ( first time in a month)...then made me read "Where the Wild things are" while we snuggled under the blankets at 7am.
  3. DH's Sister who is coming to bringing dinner when she minds my little boys this afternoon.
  4. My Husband, his grace and inner strength.
  5. My gorgeous little wild things who say "I love you Mummy"

Update : Dh radiation treatment for his facial/head cancer - today's countdown 5 weeks completed and one week to go (5 days of treatments).It's gone quickly and smoothly so far, though he is suffering (quietly) a few side effects but he soldiers on regardless.

My own last thoughts ...

#11 way to stress less... Only surround yourself with people that will lift you higher. People who will celebrate your highs and support you through the lows ...

#12 Pick more ...

I ♥ my friends.

Never miss a post

Some times it is so hard to accept the things we can not change. I know I always try my hardest to change things that I have a hard time accepting.

Jayne said...

Yep, the hardest thing is to let go of the things we cannot change.
(((hugs))) Only 1 week left of treatment? Thank goodness, fingers crossed for you all :)

I love #9! That is what I do. I put post-its on my bathroom mirror so I can read them every day.

I so remember when my dad was going through his radiation. He has/had throat cancer. Just praying that the outcome is great!

You inspired me today. I will have to work a little harder to be a little less stressed.

I am glad the treatments are going quickly and smoothly. Praying for good results.
