a moment...

...yep that is what I am having a "moment"....

I'm going to admit it and put it right out there!

I am a strong person and can handle almost anything that comes my way...

But sometimes it all just surfaces and I have a "moment"...

So for the past few days a "moment" is what I have been in. A funk, feeling sorry for myself, or whatever it is you want to call it.

I hate it when everything just sneaks up from behind and rears it's ugly head right in my face!!!

It can be little things (the cat peeing on the dog bed to automatic door at Walgreen's not opening fast enough for me)...

It can be bigger things (like Vinny's friend Ella Grace struggling for her life (please pray for her and her family) to Vinny starting preschool)...

I have read many "feel good, self help" books, I have gone to counseling, I have talked to many friends who have all been through something similar to what I have been going through...I have tried all of the strategies and suggestions!

But damn it!

Sometimes they just don't work!

So I am going to be OK with just sitting here having my "moment"...

Cry, feel sorry for myself, have a headache, and drink my red wine!

I know tomorrow will be a new day...

I have many reasons to feel blessed and many people to be thankful for in my life!

I know one thing for sure...

I look forward to waking up to 4 beautiful faces!


  1. Love it girl!!!! You are awesome and a very strong woman!! I am proud of you!!!! Shani

  2. Staci---I wish I was half the person you are! You are such an AMAZING mother, wife, friend. It is ok to have moments. Em

  3. "Courage does not always roar, Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says, I will try again tomorrow."

    A favorite quote of mine...

    Have your moment...we all deserve it once in a while.

  4. Lacey always articulates so well. You deserve many moments. You will be stronger for acknowledging the fears, the grief, the joy, all of the emotions. Hang in there. Candice

  5. I think sometimes those moments that strip skin down so our inner self is seen and we feel things we wish we couldn't.. happen so a thicker piece can grow for when we really need it..
    just a thought..
    but i have been in a moment for sometime as well.. thankful i have 5 little people needing me so i can't stay in it long..
