Pollyanna's gone

I have been a little down lately and the thought of sharing and news or memories hasn't really been on the top of my list.

All the emotions of the last few weeks are finally catching up, leaving me just a bit depressed.

I'm not that fun to be around.

All the realities of life are hitting me at once.

It's hard living in a hotel. We haven't had a "normal" routine for months now. (our things come on Saturday).

I've tried to play the "glad game", but it's not working. I feel like Pollyanna, after she fell out the window.

But...there is still a little part of me who knows ..."press on"...."He is a very present help in times of trouble"...."be of good courage and He shall strengthen your heart."

He is my God.

p.s. the kids have already made many friends in our new neighborhood!....(I'd rather go hide in my room and cry for a bit.)


  1. Hugs Jenn! I wish there was something I could say to cheer you up. I didn't know you were in a hotel. I am sure you are anxious to get moved in and actually start your new life.

    Love you dear friend!! We will be praying for you!

  2. I just got all caught up reading.... My heart is with you, sweet friend. I love you and will be praying for a smooth and speedy transition and that the Lord speaks to your heart with the exact words you need to hear right now. XO!

  3. Miss you. Glad to see you posted even if you weren't up for the glad game.

  4. thanks so much friends...for understanding. I'm so "glad" to have sisters on Christ like you!

  5. As I recall Pollyanna had her "down" time - so go ahead and cry! But, when she realized all the joy she had brought to the lives of other she couldn't help but feel glad again. I haven't known you that long but your smile and stories have brought joy to my life. So cry a little then go out for steak and ice cream and be filled with happiness again!

  6. thanks so much rachael! we did in fact go out for ice cream yesterday, there is the cutest little creamery (all homemade ice cream) just down the road from our new house. Maybe we'll have steak tonight:) I'm feeling more & more like my old "pollyanna" self:) thanks for reminding me:)
