~ Tuesday Thoughts ~

I know...I've been a bad blogger lately!  I haven't visited as I'd like nor have I posted much of anything except for the Silent Sunday posts.  I don't want to be a "Debbie Downer" so will just say that I've been experiencing some depression as well as a few health issues.  

For those of you that have never experienced a chemical imbalance in the brain, there's no way to really understand the effects it can have.  I do have to say that I'm extremely happy for you and I hope you never have an occasion to do so.  There are still a lot of misconceptions about the subject, however, it's a "real" thing and I'm just being real too!  I haven't turned into Freddie Krueger ~ that can happen with hormones though!  :)  One of the many things I want to ask God one of these days...why did you give women all the "equipment" and symptoms without a "turn it off!" switch?  Surely, that was just an oversight??   

This is a horrible photo that I really shouldn't share...just a beautiful shade of roses and yet I couldn't capture it via photos or editing.

I really love Marianne Williamson and her books, etc.  She's just a wee bit political now it seems and I can do without that.  Are you just sick of all the negatives, bashing each other and, IMHO, adults acting like little children arguing over toys?  I would love to hear these politicians voice their appreciation for our country and their intentions to protect it and the citizens. Sadly, it seems it's all about money and power ~ :/

Perhaps this subject is too much for a blog but it's "real" too and is truly bothering me. The transgender bathroom issues concern me. I don't understand the transgender person(s) or their body concerns. What bothers me is having a "male" in a restroom with young girls or vice-versa. I'm just concerned that pedophiles and perverts will use this as an excuse. 

In reality, I guess this post could be considered a "downer" due to the subjects. My apologies and I so appreciate your taking the time to stop by!  Next time there will be a recipe, a craft or something funny.  :)


  1. Hi Pat, I am sending big hugs to you. I get the blues many times....I know it's nothing compared to what you may be experiencing.., I have a good life and can come and go as I please...so why would I have the blues..mostly from loneliness...so I cry at times, then pray and try to write letters it helps. My sister and I call each other our therapists. Praying for you my friend, xoxo, bless you, Susie

  2. I always enjoy visiting with you and reading your thoughts and words. Certainly some crazy stuff happening in our world. Hugs to you!

  3. Pat, I'm sorry you are having a hard time right now. I'll be thinking of you. :)

  4. Pat, so sorry you're having a difficult time right now. Sometimes we just have to write what's on our mind.........and that's ok. These roses ARE a pretty color. Wishing you peace in the days ahead.


  5. So sorry you are feeling down....hope it passes quickly and you find some peace in your heart and mind.

  6. I'm sorry that you're feeling down, my friend. I think we all have questions that we liked answered. The roses are so pretty and I'm sure even more beautiful in person. I received an email that called for praying for our country at 8:00 central time every evening. I think that's a good idea!

  7. Sorry to hear you are feeling down. We all experience depression at times in our lives. Take the time you need, we will be here. The roses are lovely, something to brighten anyone's day. Blessings to you sweet lady. xo

  8. Sending hugs...we all have our "down" times and deal with it in our own way. Take all the time you need... xoxo

  9. So sorry you are having a difficult time ... thinking of you and sending positive thoughts your way.

    Maybe this photo of my grandchildren will brighten your day.

    Take care and take your time

    All the best Jan

  10. Dear Pat, So sorry you are feeling down. We all have these times now and again. Just take your time to feel better and focus on you. The roses are stunning. What a gorgeous color.
    Prayers for you my friend. Hugs

  11. Pat, I hope you're feeling good again soon. It does happen to all of us from time to time--at least those of us who take time for introspection. You're not alone. XO


It makes my Heart happy to hear from you! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello. I want to respond to each comment, however, if you are a "no reply blogger" I can't. Would love to have an email address to contact you!
