That's right, I feel like Brer Rabbit living in the briar patch, or maybe it's Eeyore who eats thistles.
Why so gloomy? Not gloomy, just matter of fact. Speaking of facts, here they are:
Fact 1- Ted should never wear a ring when working on the battery of my truck
- electrical burns are nasty! The ER visit was fun - he was the hero
Fact 2- Closed the store, and finishing up cleaning it this week
Fact 3- Justin decided to go to the Army Recruiter's to start the process to see if he wants to join the military
Fact 4- James was dismissed from his job today
Fact 5- I start a brand new job with a new company next Monday
Fact 6- Ted has a doctor's appt next Tuesday
This doesn't feel like a valley, just a rocky stretch in the road, I just keep plodding along and kicking the pebbles out of my shoes. So yes, rocks and thistles hurt, but they don't knock me off my feet. Besides, the Shepherd's rod and staff comfort me.
