What to do when you humble yourself?

This is one of the tags for the 12 Days of Christmas that is being made and sold at my favorite scrapbook store. You can  go and see the wonderful scrappers by going to Treasured Memories. com. It is in Lafayette. I should have brought the direct link, but my mind is not where it should be today. Janet, the owner is just the sweetest person and Paula Abshire is my favorite scrapper. She now works at Micheals, but she is on the design team at Treasured Memories.

Well, I honestly thought that Brenda would answer my emails, but I was wrong. I sent her and Martin a Christmas Greeting and said I was sorry for things getting out of control. I then called her and Martin answered the phone and I could hear what she was saying in the background. Needless to say, she said for me to stop calling her. It just feels like another member of my immediate family has died. What do I do now? I humbled myself, only to get shot down. I can't say the pain isn't there, but I'm sure with time, my wounds will heal. The only thing that stays on my mind is why she turned on me 2 weeks after my brother assaulted me and she is the one who told me to call the Sheriff's office. Guess I will never know.
Anyway, I have to try and mop the kitchen floors, because with the rain, it's horrible and the kitchen is huge. It is raining again and more expected for tomorrow---I think I would rather have snow or a hot Christmas than all this rain.
I still have to get Chris's package off to her before Christmas gets here. Sending priority, so she should get it on time.I just wish she and David could come for Christmas also. What a wonderful gift that would be. Well I am going to finish some more packing, so the room will look bigger and more presentable. I hope you  all have a great weekend. I will be busy with Donnie, so you know that I am excited. Love, Hugs, and Blessings, Pat

Just try and be upbeat and cheery, honey. This will pass.

Connie, you are just so sweet. Thanks and I will try to think positive. Y'all have been my angels on Earth, helping me along the way, instead of just giving up. I know that sounds wacko, but it's not what I really mean---just the desire not to do anything, but I know that will all soon change. It's very difficult to humble yourself to someone who shoots you down. {{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}Pat

Hi Pat,
The tags is really cute.
Enjoy your time with Donnie & put all the other nonsense on hold or right out of your mind. It's not worth beating yourself up over someones pigheadedness. Sending you all our excess heat from "down under" & hope it stops raining there soon.
Love Nettie
PS: Big big hugs to you

Rhea and Nettie, thanks for more great kindness and advice. I did cry yesterday, but I'm feeling great today. I've always beleived if God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Guess after pain since 1983, I would love some relief, especially from the grief. The one thing I do love is the fact that God has sent me some wonderful people through the internet who are compassionate like me. When other people hurt, I hurt also. I sometimes think that a kind and gentle soul is a curse, but I have to remind myself that it is a Blessing. Love you all. Pat

Pray with us because they are to about to get SLAMMED by a major storm that they are calling "HISTORIC".........not good. long as we can land and move around I guess we will be okay. is always something isn't it?
Hope you have a LOVELY Christmas!
