Today I Feel Like This....


...all prickly, grumpy, peevish, and sad. 
As well as everyone else, feeling helpless.
I know exactly why.
I am thinking that I am
not good enough.
I don't do "stuff" well.
I don't accomplish much of anything.
So, I am sending myself
some flowers and attempting 
to be kind to myself.
I am thinking about these lovely blossoms.
If you are feeling the same,
these are for you too.


And here is one more
that symbolizes hope.
Truly, I did not arrange this one.

As I have been waiting
for my photos to upload,
I looked out the window.
Too far away to take a picture,
but I can see two happy woodpeckers,
huge woodpeckers together
on the same fir tree.
I find myself smiling and
laughing and being happy.
I think there is a message here.
Best to all, ellen.
                p.s. I did not mean to say that you were feeling cranky, just perhaps helpless.

You know what you need in my opinion? A good long walk to shake it out of your system. Bad things happen, they've always happened, but now we get to see them 24/7 if we choose to, whereas before we'd have lived in happy ignorance, like the woodpeckers. Not to say that we should bury our heads in the sand, but maybe that we should not well, wallow in it all. Not to say that you are, but I know an awful lot of people who are. Sending you spring shoots from England. ♥

Accomplishment might be a little over rated...just sayin! And thanks for the egg advice. I remember reading about those huge eggs. Ouch!! How does that not hurt?!
Hope you are feeling better today.

very moving Ellen, I think it it so important to be aware of nature, and to turn off the TV especially the 24 hour news channels

Sometimes we need sadness in our life just to make kind of balance :) Hope you have a wonderful Sunday afternoon there.
