Dear Paint

Dear Paint, I don't know how you do it, but you manage to get everywhere. I found you on my steering wheel, I found you on the seat, I found you on my clothes, my lips, my hair, my eyelashes, and even my toes. And I wore shoes when I painted! I know, crazy! My pants got so painty I couldn't get them to stay up. Thank you for going on the walls of my new house nicely. I will try to be nice to you if you stay on them nicely. Les

Dear Bed,

Dear Bed,

How I've missed you!!! It wasn't much fun sleeping in the recliner even though it is comfy and I'd totally make out in it. But don't worry Ang, I haven't and I have no plans to really make out in your recliner.

But the recliner helped me breathe better so I was traitorous and slept in it instead of you comfy warm bed.

I missed the squishy soft mattress, the warm heated blanket, and the fact that it wasn't in the tv room.

How thankful I am to have a bed. How blessed I am. One of my sisters was telling me about how one of her kids went to a poor friends house and the kids beds were basically those wood things I burn in bonfires with a squishy pad on top.

Funny how I take for granted that I have not only 1 bed, but 3 others for guests and there are people who don't even have 1 bed.

I have so much to be grateful for. That I can afford to go to the doctors and get my sinuses fixed. That I have a recliner to make out in, errr I mean sleep in, and a bed and clothes and plenty of food.

I need to I take the time more often to remember how blessed I have and how much God has given me.

Dear Walmart

Dear Walmart,

Usually when I go to you, I think to myself, "Self, why are you here, you hate Walmart". Yet, I continue on and go in, get what I need and leave. Yeah the lines suck and it's a little annoying that you have like 2 cashiers for the 50 people in line, but I get over it since you usually have what I need.

Well, lets just say that didn't happen last time. I had to make the long trek in from the parking log in the freezing cold. Then I got in and the 2 things I needed weren't even available. And the 1 or 2 employees on the floor had a giant crowd of people waiting for assistance so I didn't even bother since having them look for them would've taken hours.

I just went to Target. Same price, on the shelf, and as an added bonus, I also found a musical cow. And they have a pizza hut in their store.

So let me just tell you Walmart, you have crappy produce, poor service, lots of out of stock stuff, and a few things cheaper than Target, but Target kicks your butt in terms of service, quality, and the fact that they actually have what I need in stock or employees willing to assist me.

Dear Fear,

Dear Fear,

I once had you, sometimes I still do. But I sometimes at night I pray for courage. I pray to stand up for what is right and true. I pray that I will have the courage to say what I feel and to act on those feelings.

I trust that God will give me courage to overcome you in my life and to do the things that need doing. To say what needs to be said, and to follow the path that might be harder to go down.

Someday, I will stand tall and know I've overcome you. And to know I didn't do it alone. With faith, nothing is impossible.

So try if you must, but I will beat you.
