Something Good Monday and the "Joy" Factor

It's 5:15 a.m. I think I slept maybe 2 hours at the most last night. Pleading that my meds and heat kick in quickly...I should be leaving the house right now for work. Today is the first day of our new work location adding another hour to my commute. The below pic is from my friend Patti's blog http://www.creativecottagedreamer.blogspot.com/.


Her pic's usually remind me of where I came from, and sends me into a reflection of how far I've come... Her words bring me comfort and is definitely a "Something good Monday" worthy post. These particular pics remind me of the battle within my heart right now. I am battling bitterness...I have spoken briefly about "Soulless" and the tyranny she wields...but today I need prayer for discernment more than if I've ever needed it in my life before. I am under attack for sure, but it is spiritual warfare. Last week I spent 6 hrs with HR. I was on reduced hours, I have a whole team that I'm trying to pack along with all the legal documents my department holds to move to a new location and HR takes 6 precious hours of my already too short time...Friday's 3 1/2 interview was exhausting and I spent the rest of the day sick along with Saturday and Sunday...I will tell you more about this later but today is "Something Good Monday", and last night as I was trying to go to sleep, I came to the conclusion, that so far so good, my heart can't have turn to stone yet, otherwise I wouldn't be leaving for work this early... I am leaving for work this early so that one of my staff members will be able to start his day early because he is having logistical problems with the new location and being back in time so his wife can go to work and he can watch the baby...I realize in all of this commentary that I may lost the point of this something good item so I will break it down more simply:


  1. There is a very young couple in this world that love each other and their baby so much that she took on afternoon hours at work so that the sweet one will always have one of them and not left to the arms of strangers in daycare. I have posted about them previously, but to see the lengths their love will carry them is a blessing and amazing to me at a time when others simply would say they have no choice, these amazing kids take on the challenge and won't be turned around...
  2. My friend Patti at Creative Cottage Dreamer is always a sweet comforting voice on a dark night...like crawling into a hug.




My next something good is my friend Tracy from "Cotton Pickin Cute", http://cottonpickincute.blogspot.com, who has started her own spread the joy endeavour with "Miracle Mondays". I was thinking it would be awesome if everyone followed this prompt and posted positive energy intentionally at least once a week to circle the globe with love....

And last but certainly not least "Frenchie & Flea", just yummy fun stuff...

I know I've told you about Allegra and Emily before, just jump on over there and spin a day dream or two...

I hope your "Something good Monday" was filled with joy!

Hey again Sweetie. I can't believe I missed your post from yesterday. I wish I had known. Not that I could have done anything earth moving for you but I certainly could have offered a shoulder, ear and a virtual hug. It sounds like it was such a rough weekend for you. Be blessed sweetness, God will see you though.

Thank you so much for posting such nice things about Miracle Mondays. I love your idea about everyone posting positive energy intentionally at least once a week to circle the globe with love....
Your heart is truly a big one girl!!! I'm looking forward to checking out the other sites you've shared.

Hugs and prayers that your day becomes filled with sunshine. Love ya', Tracy :)

Hey, are you sick of me yet. I just thought I'd let you know I went over to check out Allegra and Emily. Great site by the way and they are having a giveaway. What a plus. Just thought I'd tip you off in case you didn't know already.

You are such a sweetie to mention me in your post- I feel like I do not deserve the praise, but I thank you so much for saying it! I am glad the pictures remind you of "home" and enjoy your visits and comments very much. I know you are going through a rough time and I wish there was something I could do to help get you through. Please know others care about you and what you are going through and only wish you the best.

Love,
Patti
