Lions, and Tigers and Bear oh my!

Hello all who come in for a chance to read my blog. I can not tell you how much it makes me feel having you all read it. But enough of the I could cry write now stuff, I want to talk about us! This week has been a very blue week for me. It all started when i saw my blood pressure and it was 145/95 I freaked out how could that be so high! I have been eating right ok, I did have those homemade french Fry's but they were so good and saying "Eat me Amanda" So I did eat them, not very many, but some. I walked this week, but its hard because it is always in the triple digits and I feel like crap afterwards so I have been sticking to inside. My TMJ has been flaring up and that has made eating not that fun! All in all I have been in a blue blue mood. Kind of like the Lion from the wizard of oz. I am the type of person who can hind a bad day so easily, my whole life I have faked a smile when I needed to! But now I think of my sisters, my friends, and my family and wonder why do I do that? What is the point of putting on a fake face to someone. So for that my dear friends I am sorry. So what made me cheer up this week, but my son wonderful silly smile! Here take a look and see what i mean!

Its funny to me how simple a smile can be! Think about it when someone smiles at you, you do what, smile! Its one of those strange facts of life!  When you smile you have endorphins just coming out of your whole body, so maybe we need to smile a little bit more. Go have some fun, wash the car together as a family, or sit down and read a book together. As soon as I let myself not get so down and blue, things started to get better! Just like eating right makes you feel better!
If we all are just willing to except that we will have bad days as well as good ones, we will be able to make it that Emerald city in no time! Congrats to Jenny, and Jess who are rocking it out!!!! You guys are doing great!

Smile smile smile! That's half the battle! Ya know they say you can choose your mood everyday. It works for me most of the time...

I find fighting feelings like that or pretending they aren't there makes it worse for me. Just letting myself feel how I'm feeling is helpful. Then you can kind of move on if you're ready.

My son has crazy smiles too! Love them!

He's cute! Kids DO have a way of putting a smile on your face, don't they? I don't know how many times we've been told in public that our dd's laughter is contagious. Guess that's partially what they mean about letting loose and acting like a kid again!

Very sweet smile! It definitely makes the day so much better when you have such an adorable face (or in my case, two faces) to look at all the time. Hope next week is better for you!
