Not enough time in the day!!!

Sunday, November 18, 2018

Oh my goodness it's been like forever since I blogged. My life has really been busy, I badly get a chance to do the things I love lately and I love Sparkpeople. I wish there was more time in the day. So what's been going on to keep me from my everyday Sparking, well my job is so demanding, all the long hours but I need them to be able to try to make ends meet. I have two beautiful grandbabies who I love and adore, that I have to help provide for as well. I'm sure you all remember my beautiful little niece that I also took in and raised, she is 5 now and she needs all my attention, because her mom isn't exactly the best of a mom but she is still young, so you all know young kids don't need babies. Then there is my parents, that I have to make sure that are eating, taking their medicine daily, keeping there home up, helping them shop..etc. it's just not enough time in the day😟...I find myself so overwhelmed and exhausted at time and even though I want to make time to do things for myself, I just can't because I'm always putting everyone else first and this includes co workers and people that I meet daily. By the time I want to read that book or spark, I just go straight to bed. As you all know the holidays are here and I'm excited but I know I won't be able to enjoy it like I want to, no time for myself. I love, love to shop, a girl hasn't been able to shop for herself in a long time. But I buy everything for everyone else. I see this Dooney & Bourke Brielle Tote that Belk will have on the Black Friday deals for $99, I have always wanted one but they have always been too expensive and now that they are kind of reasonable, I can't buy it because I have so many people that could benefit from that $99. But you guys know me, God doesn't put more on me then I can bare, my needs for other out weighs my wants for myself. I am just Bless to know that I can put smiles on my family and friends faces. Now eventually I will get to read that book, I will get to blog more and Spark with my wonderful friends. I really miss you all. I hope you all are still holding on to your weight loss goals. I wishing you all a Wonderful and Bless Thanksgiving with your love ones. emoticon emoticon

    Oh boy, my friend, you are very busy. You have a lot going on. I think you should buy the purse while it's at a good price. Treat yourself. I hope life gets a little easier for you soon and that financially, every need is met without struggle and strain.

    Most, most, most important... keep your life immersed in Jesus first, pray and seek the One that can make it all better and then leave it in His more than capable hands.

    This too shall pass.

    Honey, I so get what you mean. I spent a long jobless spell when the economy tanked, so I feel like the latter end of Job, so blessed to have the job I’ve got even though like you I come home worn out. I keep counting my blessings and hanging in there. Others have done it before us, and God is with us in the hard places.

    Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving.

    Sending hugs and love to you at this beautiful holiday season. You have so much on your shoulders right now, but you take it all in stride and do what you have to do for your loved ones. You are a good person and God see's that. Keep on keeping on and rest when you can and spend time with those you love.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving season and treat yourself once in a while. You work hard and need a little treat once in a while too. Take care of yourself. Big hugs and blessings to you!

    My sic, I know that life can get hectic and from reading your post, I completely understand you. I was so busy that I forget days of the week and I even forget when I was getting paid. That's busy!

    Two things I had to learn is, you can't be all things to everyone and you can't do it all. If you keep stretching yourself so thin, eventually your body/ health has a way of slowing you down. When I had to take care of a sick mother and grandmother, take my mother to her almost weekly doctors appointments, serve on different ministries in my church and work a full time job with very little help, I had to scale back on some things because it was starting to take a toll on me mentally and health wise.

    Keep praying to God for him to send you some help and guidance because you and I know that prayer changes things. Make time for yourself even if it's just 10-20 minutes each day. It's great to think about others but you need to think about YOURSELF also. You work hard so buy that purse as a gift to yourself without having any guilt about it because you deserve it. .

    Take care my friend.
