Quote, Song And Thoughts Of The Week | November 16th 2019

“Sometimes we fall down because there is something down there we’re supposed to find.”

I heard this song the other night and I keep singing it in my head:


“Girl, won’t you stop your cryin’?
I know that you’re tryin’
Everything’s gonna be okay
Baby girl, don’t you hang your head low
Don’t you lose your halo
Everyone’s gonna be okay
Baby girl

Man, this is unflatterin’, all up in my head again
I don’t feel myself right now, maybe I should just lay down
If vanity’s my vitamin, well, I don’t feel the difference
I don’t like myself right now, gotta find a way out

What you feel is natural
But I don’t wanna feel this anymore
Pick yourself up off the kitchen floor
What you waitin’ for?

Girl, won’t you stop your cryin’?
I know that you’re tryin’
Everything’s gonna be okay
Baby girl, don’t you hang your head low
Don’t you lose your halo
Everyone’s gonna be okay
Baby girl”

Maren Morris

Hello my beautiful friends and readers! 🙂 I hope you are having a great November. It will be Thanksgiving before you know it. Wow. I’ve gotta get my grocery list ready for my Thanksgiving dinner and plan out my “Black Friday” shopping. I like to stay home and do my shopping online. I’ve been trying to keep my head in the right place and I was watching a nightly Revival live on YouTube. I was feeling pretty good and getting fired up when Hell began breaking loose yet again. After the two weeks I’ve had, I hope the rest of this month goes better. I’ve been pretty messed up. I was supposed to get a root canal and a new crown done, but thank the Lord, I only needed a new crown! Whew. My left arm was still all bruised up when I had to have even more lab work done from my right arm and something happened with the blood pressure cuff. I don’t know, but this was my right arm…


I was feeling pretty low. The anxiety from all of the appointments was overwhelming. I kept looking at my arms and feeling sorry for myself. It’s too hot to wear long sleeves here. I don’t like looking at myself right now! Goodness. My Man had planned for us to go on a road trip. It was just for one night, but I almost didn’t go. We have both been REALLY stressed out and we hardly see each other. Just when I think I’m getting back to being more like the woman he loves, I get knocked down. Maybe I’m supposed to find something while I’m down here… I’ll keep looking. I feel like I am failing pretty bad at this relationship stuff this week. I think he understands, it’s just frustrating. I’m trying so hard to be the “fun” me no matter what I feel like. I didn’t want to disappoint him, so I got up out of bed, pushed my anxiety to the side and packed my bags…


He got me a new key chain on our trip. I love it! Hearts and crosses are my favorites. ❤


It was so nice to get away. I love the mountains. I was pretty happy, and doing a VERY good job of being “fun” me. My arms were even clearing up! My happiness didn’t last long though, the day after I got home, I felt like I was getting a cold. Nooooo!!! Two days later, I couldn’t even talk! Yup. The week before this, I was in bed for a day or two trying to recover from my dental work and I was also trying get my vitamin levels up before going on the overnight road trip. My oldest daughter “Dollface” had come over and made sure I took care of myself. Now, I was in bed AGAIN with cold symptoms and no voice. I missed my weekly grocery shopping and errand day with my father. I got behind on lots of things. I couldn’t go on any dates or have fun with my Man. My romantic life came to a screeching halt…


Oh well. I powered through, got up everyday and did what I could with no voice. Dollface stayed with me a couple of nights, helped me take care of her sister, made soup, grilled cheese sandwiches and cookie/brownies! She is such a sweetheart. I don’t know what I would do without her. At some point, I realized there was Reese’s pumpkins in the house!!! I hadn’t had one all season. My Man had brought some and left them on the counter in a bowl. I thought they were regular Reese’s cups (he likes those). I wish I had realized what little chocolate covered peanut butter treasures were here. I only got to eat one of them. It was good.

I did go to the doctor (getting real tired of seeing the inside of those offices) to see why I can’t talk. My anxiety was so bad that I got dizzy on the table. Oh goodness. I am just going to have to tough this sickness out. It could be two weeks before I’m better. Yikes! I think I need to re-evaluate my vitamin choices and try to get my immune system built up. I owe my Man some dates!

After I returned from my appointment, I had a crying breakdown. Then, I pulled myself together like I always do. On a positive note, I lost 5 pounds according to the scale at the doctor’s. Yay! I have no idea how I did that. Ugh… I just really hate to be sick like this. I have so much I need to do and I HAVE to be able to talk. Thank the Lord I didn’t have any important meetings this week. That would have been a disaster. Plus, I’m a mama, we don’t get sick days. Sick as can be, some of us will crawl on the floor to get to our children and take care of them. My youngest daughter “Babydoll” has special needs and me not being able to talk, I have to point a lot. I also use lots of physical touch like rubbing her back to wake her up and hugs to show her I care. My top love language is physical touch. I LOVE hugs and kisses. BabyDoll is NOT a “physical touch” person! I think She feels love the most when I give her words of affirmation and gifts. She’s not used to mommy being silent. 

I’ve been praying a lot and remembering to praise and thank God even when I don’t have the answers I’m looking for, even when I can’t seem to catch a break. There is always something to be thankful for. If I never get better, I’m still gonna praise the Lord. If this is as good as it ever gets, I’m still gonna worship the Lord. If I have to go to Church with no voice ever again (I know, that’s being dramatic), I’ll still worship the best I can. 

“Move your heart closer and closer to God, and he will come even closer to you.”James 4:8

      It’s been crazy, but I’m trying to get better. 🤧😷

      Yes, we did. 😭 I just feel so bad that I got sick. He was here with me for 4 more days after we got back and he was so excited. Welp, nothing turned out exactly like he had planned. 😬 As soon as I get better and when our schedules line up, I’ve got some making up to do for this one!

      Des is such a huge help! She’s here today, making me tea with lemon and honey right now. 💕

      Of course! I love your posts. You write things people need to read and you tell it like it is. 🙌🏻


      • Stuart L. Tutt says:

        One thing I have learned is that NOTHING goes as planned. Something or someone will put their foot across the tracks and derail the whole thing 😦

        You will be able to have a make-up session😉

        I’m just hoping I get to spend time with Angie at some point. I just want to be in her presence for a day or two. That’s all.

        You and your man had that time even though you were sickly. He was still able to spend time with you. That’s important!

        You are so right! Nothing goes as planned… ever. 😦
        My Man has coined this phrase when talking me into doing stuff, “We are gonna have fun it kills us!” While he’s smiling I will tell him, “It just might!” 😀

        I hope so! 😉

        Aww, brother Stuart, that’s beautiful. I hope she knows how much you love her. Wow.

        That is true! He will be here with me for two whole days this week. I’m still really sick (doctor said it’s Para-influenza), but I’m going to try and do something with him. Even if it’s take out and movies from RedBox, eucalyptus oil, boxes of tissues, throat drops and cold medicine! 😀 As long as we are together, that’s what matters. I’m learning that more and more.

        As much fun and amazing as making love to Angie is I’m just as content being around her. Love and intimacy is not just sex. It’s EVERYTHING!

        Yeah, she felt really bad when she came to visit that time and woke me up at 4 saying she felt she needed to get home that something was wrong with her mom. We packed up, checked out of the hotel and she went home. Later she apologized saying it didn’t go as we planned. I said yes, it did. We spent time together. That’s all I wanted, sex would have been a bonus.

      Thank you! ❤

      I’m feeling a little better and my voice is coming back. Thank the Lord!!! I’m drinking hot tea with lemon and honey and getting lots of rest today.

      It is really pretty! The photo doesn’t do it justice. The stones in the heart are pink and they sparkle. I love sparkly key chains. 😀

      You’re welcome! Great poem. 🙂

      God bless you my sweet friend. {{hugs}}

        I’m glad you’re feeling a little better. I am healing from a pretty nasty sinus infection that I came down with last week. When God calls a time out, He blows that whistle loud and clear. He longs for us to convalesce (heal and grow strong) with Him!
        Keeping you in prayer. ❤

        Me too! I know it could be 2 weeks, but I’m a hard one to keep down!

        Oh dear, those sinus infections are no fun!

        Yes, He certainly does! I think we push ourselves way too hard and He didn’t make us to go, go, go like that 24/7 .

        Thank you so much! I am praying for you sweet sister. 💕🙏🏻
