Melancholic Funk

Several people have asked me if I'm on a blog-cation . . . not so much -- just really behind on all of our family going-ons and just kinda' melancholy- funky-blah lately. And it's hard for me to know where to start when I'm so far behind with our family's daily adventures.

I kinda' feel like our family has taken some blows lately, as a couple, and individually. I'm just feeling a little beat up, tired, and down. There's nothing in particular especially wrong, just your standard-issue, relatively insignificant irritations that for whatever reason have been weighing heavily on me lately.

I blame part of it on hormones - my body is still trying to re-learn what to do on its own without a fetus or suckling child sending hormonal directives! First time in a looong time! :o)

And God's been really working on me lately. I think the natural response to seeing myself clearly, in comparison to God's holiness, is to be humbled, which, in me, is often translated into introversion and withdrawal.
At risk of sounding on the verge of whiney right now, I'll leave this post with my favorite line from the "Father of the Bride" movies:
"Every pahty haz a pooper; that's why we invited yeeew, Mischelle [or insert mopey family member's name when appropriate]!"

And a few pictures . . .

It's a home run!
So big!! Who needs a highchair?

You think this is a violation of child labor laws?

So tired! You should've seen the cheeks jiggling as we bounced on the road!

It is worth so little, but your mom loves you beyond words and is so very proud of each and every day of your life........
Now! lift up that chin, look around at the blessings that the Lord has given you to chase and love, and smile....... God loves you and so do I.
Oh, and call you mom sometime?

I know how it feels, to be just blah sometimes. And yes, hormones probably do have something to do with it. Still hard though. I know God will meet you where you are, and bring you to a new awareness and a new joy.
