Don't worry, be HAPPY!

Where do I even start?  It's been almost a year since I updated LL!  That's crazy.  Like I said in my previous post, I hopped on over to Wordpress for a minute to try it on, but I couldn't help but miss my good ole blogger blog.  So much easier, simple, comfortable- what I'm needing A LOT of in my life right now.  So I'm back.

To catch up, I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old that keep me on my toes every day.  My hubby finally got a job where he is home with us every day, and I am staying home currently with my two year old.  I've been on the job hunt for the past few months to no avail.  I have probably applied to 50 different jobs, had three interviews, all to hear, "there's a better candidate for this position."  Grrr.......getting a job in this market is tough!  I'm just trying to remain optimistic that the right job will be revealed to me soon.  Rather sooner than later.  We'll see.....

I woke up extra early this morning craving the Chick.  And when I say Chick, I mean Chick-fil-A, whoop whoop!  It's a Georgian's fav place to eat, mark.my.words.  Of course, I've officially gone crazy and decided that my body no longer needs sugar, so I'm "attempting" a low-carb, gluten-free, paleo, atkins, whatever you call it diet.  My favorite thing to eat at the Chick is a chicken breakfast burrito; trust.  It will change your life.  While speeding home to devour this tortilla-less burrito (because I'm good, y'all) I hear on the radio a letter from a survivor of the theater massacre in Paris just last weekend.  Wow.  Listening to this person describe the horrific violence that occurred right in front of her broke me.  Watching innocent people and loved ones die in front of her, as she lay motionless so these monsters wouldn't know she was alive.  Can you imagine??  Perspective.  Perspective as I feel sorry for myself because I can't eat a freakin' tortilla.  Perspective because I can't find a job.  Perspective because I definitely do not appreciate all the blessings bestowed on me every day.  I was sick about this event all weekend.  Monday I googled "the safest place to live in the world" because I'm scared to death.  (Btw, Canada sounds great.)  Instead of praying I worried incessantly.  Then my sister sent me this.


Wow.  Perspective.

God bless the people of Paris.  God bless the people of Lebanon that lost many just the day before in another terrorist attack.  God bless us all.

We will not let this evil take away our happiness.  We have God.  We also have flowers.

Have a wonderful day, friends!
