The times and troubles of the farmers wife

Good morning all!!! I am up ahead of schedule this morning, number one because my husband had to leave at four am to go get a corn head in Missouri, and number two because I have horrible leg pains that keep me awake most nights. They're thinking its fibromyalgia. Now when they told me this I said Im too young! Then the doctor explained to me that anytime someone goes through any kind of traumatic event such as having a baby, losing their dad (a year ago this march), cutting of ties with their mother (drug problems) plus two step kids and a mean (no kidding shes horrible) mother in law who moved in one day out of nowhere and took over my nursery/play room. And sometimes I catch myself being crabby and thinking poor me, lifes not fair blah blah and then I stop myself. I think about the millions of people out there who have it way worse than I could ever imagine. I try to take a few minutes each day to be grateful for my life and everyone in it. I love all my kids, even the ones that aren't biologically mine, I have a wonderful husband whos a hard worker that provides for us all so that I am fortunate enough to stay home with my precious baby boy. So next time you catch yourself feeling sorry try to remember someone always has it worse, and try to take a minute every day to enjoy every little pleasure in your life before its too late.

You're absolutely right. It is so easy to forget about the good things in life and focus on the bad. I hope you have a great day!

I agree, it's so easy to get wrapped up in the whoa is mes but when you take time to remember what you do have it makes it you realize how blessed you are.

I hope your lege pains go away. Have a great day :)

I read this once and have always remebered it:

"If you were standing in a room with alot of other people around a table - and each person took their problems and dumped them on the table for all to see - you would take your own problems back in a heartbeat."
