I've Lost That Loving Feeling

Dear Friends ... I'm sorry to say that today, I'm just not feeling very bloggety. I don't feel like sharing, I don't feel like thinking, and I don't feel like posting the "deep, thought provoking" post I had planned to do today. In fact, I feel like I've just been dumped by my very first date. I really haven't, it's just how low my heart is right now.

So, until I feel like posting serious stuff again, I'll post something that is lighthearted (for me), something that brings a smile to my face, and something that brings me encouragement (and, hopefully you too, if needed!).

For the "lighthearted" part: I was notified today that I won an award in a photography contest that was held at my workplace... not for the content (although, on his own, he's so stinking cute), but rather for the photography.


For the "brings a smile to my face" part: The actual picture I won an award for...






















For the "brings me encouragement" part: (as if that picture didn't...)

Some days just seem more down and harder than others. This seems to be one of them, be it blog-wise or just living.

Keep your eyes on Hunter. That boy is a cutie! And remember to keep your eyes on the one who made him.

Blessings to you, my sweet, non-bloggety-for-now friend. I'm praying for you right now.

Congrats' on that award! What a cutie.....He's adorable! What's wrong with the content! He looks like a winner to me!

I hope your bloggity-funk dissapates really quickly! Every one needs to take a step back from time to time...may yours be a short one.

There's not a person out here who can be up and cheerful every single day. Not one. And that photo of the baby is the sweetest thing I've seen in ages. Adorable. Look at that sweet face. And....thank you for the verse - exactly what I needed to see today.

Hope you feel perkier soon. Take care of you.

Susanne said...

Ilove that verse! And that picture is just to darn sweet, like a perfect little angel! Just makes you want to eat him up! Sorry your having a down time. I'll keep you in my prayers, my friend. And don't ever feel you have to be chipper 24/7 on here. You be you my friend and let us lift you up!

Lauren said...

Been that, down there. Hahahahaha

Yes, I'm fully aware that wasn't funny to you, but to me it was hilarious 'cause you just had to be there. Or you have to be weird not sure which is the case. I'm praying for you. I love you and hope you're all hopped up on blogging again soon.

Love the baby pic! That little grin on his face makes me wonder whether he's having a good dream or passing gas. Because I'm weird that way.

Love it!

that photo is so perfect! :)

Great photo. Congrats.

Chaotic Mom said...

I'm working through similar feelings now, too. Last month was a toughie for me. I didn't post much for that reason, either.

Sometimes we give, give, give, and give everything we have till there isn't more to give for a while. You are a wonderful person, GiBee, someone for whom I will always be thankful.

I'll be praying for you, for "recharging" maybe, too. And I KNOW this can take some time. I will keep checking in, though. ;)
