Just one of those days....or.....

.....your Mom is in one of her moods!!!!

Are you wondering about the title of my post?
Well....my precious husband....you know the man I affectionately refer to as Pappy on my blog?
When Jess was small she asked him once what was wrong with Mom....I'm sure I was just acting a hair off of my normal....sweet....precious self!!!

Anywho....he told her....
...."your Mom is in one of her moods".

Now...if that was said about you....what would you do?!?! 
Would you take it as constructive criticism and work on your attitude....or....let him know that if he thought you were in a mood, then he's not seen nuttin' yet?!?!?

Knowing me and how I was back in my younger days....(and that old me still rears her ugly head from time to time).....I probably chose #2!!!

But....do you ever get in a bad mood and you really can't put your finger on the cause of it?

If there's a club called Moody People Anonymous.....then I've gotta be the President!!!

I've been this way most of this week.
I'm tired.....I'm moody.....I'm down in the dumps....I'm sleepy....I'm snippy....
....I'm having "one of those days"....
....and yes....Jess' Mom....
....is in one of her moods!!!

Can you tell from my posts this week that I'm hoping and praying....grasping for understanding from the rest of 'ya....that I'm not the only one who feels this way....who gets this way....and can't really pinpoint why?!?!

Being a female is terribly difficult sometimes!!!

Psalm 142:3a (NLT)
When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn.

Blessings to each of 'ya!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  1. Yes, been there, done that and bought several tee shirts along the way! Ha! I am going to MENTAL PAUSE (ha!) so needless to say, that itself is enough to send one over the edge. But I must say that since I have found the right hormone that works for me I have felt much better. But there are still times as you said, I can't pin point it, don't really have a reason, but I just get SNIPPY or I just want to cry and don't really know why, or I really want to be ugly and it's about piddly stuff! And there are days that I really don't want a Sunday school answer! You know what I mean? I know what God's Word says we are to do and how we are behave and what we are to think. I just want to be me! And then when I am just me....it is during that time that ME and JESUS talk and He reminds me that I am normal, and I can talk to about these things and that He does love me even when I am having a bad or ugly day...Praise the Lord! One thing I know for sure....My God is ALWAYS faithful...even when I'm not. Be blessed. cindy

  2. Dear Deb, I wish I had checked your blog sooner this week! I've been so busy that I hadn't dropped by. We keep chatting on the Getting Thin blog.
    I'll be praying for you. I used to feel that way for years until the Lord kind of showed me some things. The most important was his unconditional acceptance of me even when I fail. Not to say that you are failing in any way. I don't know a thing about your life. But for me, I felt so afraid of 'failing'..God, the kids...someone. I never felt truly loved and accepted and the depression was like a vague unhappiness all the time.

    I don't understand fully what your are going through..but the Lord does so we will ask him to reveal what you need to know. He loves you like a Father loves his little child.

    Love,
    Donna
