i’m not gonna lie to you, yesterday threw me for some loop. My beloved County and State went whole hog for THE DONALD and Hillary and I am, effectively, in mourning.
thankfully late last night and this morning my best friend who wisely moved to Arkansas where people have more sense (I DID NOT JUST SAY THAT) texted to commiserate and console me. The two of us know each other as well as two unmarried people can, i guess, we parented our babies together and kept each other reasonably sane. She is my rock who i love even though we vehemently disagree on LOTS of issues…and she loves me even though she knows most of my yucky stuff. We are THE CHURCH for one another, and i’m so thankful for her. She didn’t change anything, but just hearing from her made me feel somewhat better.
anyhoo, i decided this morning that POLITICS IS HELL ON EARTH and i’m not gonna let it get me down. i will not dwell in hell. i decided to purge closets instead. So far i’ve gone through HG’s closet and my closet and whilst purging too small shirts and sweaters and pants and stuff i haven’t worn in ages and will never wear again i found i was also purging my mind. Purging your closets is a good thing, but purging your mind is THE BOSS.
i have decided that, at least for today, i’m done with trying to figure anything out. We are living in a foolish world full of fools, so let’s just be ourselves and enjoy the foolishness. The absolute only person we can count on anyway is Jesus, and since i’m pretty sure He isn’t worried about any of this tom-foolery there’s no need for me to worry about it, either.
there’s too many people to love and too much purging to do. It would be awesome if we could start by purging the government, but i’ll leave that one up to the Almighty.
for me, it’s back to the closets….
