Whiny Baby

Just call me what I am - an approval-seeking, whiny baby! Seriously!  How did you guys put up with me yesterday???

I re-read my post this morning and thought - What a spoiled little brat!!!

I was having a bad, yucky day - I have had a few disappointments over the past few weeks and I took it out on my blog.  sorry.

But the strangest thing happened.

Within one hour, I had the most sweet, loving comments from y'all - God sent his little angels to me to lift my spirits. ONE HOUR Y'ALL - how did you know to look at my blog when I needed it the most?


Because He knew I needed you.


And the day kept getting better.

Bubba & I had the best trip to The Home Depot- I was buying paint for my Dining Room (Happy Camper!) and had so much advice given to me by the sweetest old man who had been a painter for 30 years.  I have never in my life been so excited to discover and use frog tape.  Yup.  Frog tape. Go google  that one y'all.

And while cleaning out my email, I found an email from the sweet Mamarazzi telling me that I had won this from her Taking Back Monday Giveaway last week:
how lucky blessed am i??

Funny thing is, I had the email sitting there in my inbox opened, as if I had read it, but I didn't really read it until yesterday when I needed it the most.  I don't believe in coincidences y'all - that happened that way for a reason.  

I contemplated pulling yesterdays post (because as I re-read it, I hate it!) but I realized it was what I was feeling at the time and it was me just being me....and all the comments were so very lovely, that I didn't want those to go away too! 

So, no more whiny baby-ness from me.  You all have embraced me and made me feel loved!!  Thank you all for your friendship - it means so much!

I love that necklace, so pretty, grats on the win! :)

I'm glad you're feeling better, I read your post yesterday and I could sense frustration.

I don't think you should be embarassed or sorry for what you posted, you have to keep it real sometimes! This is your blog, a placae for your thoughts, if people don't like it, they don't need to read it (and considering the outpouring of support I don't think that's an issue).

Here's to a better day! :))

Blog friends are great, aren't they?

Congrats on the necklace! I think it's a sign of good things to come!

Never delete posts. Just keep it real. We all need to vent from time to time. =) Glad you're having a better day!

I know exactly what you mean, in both this post and yesterdays. I'm sorry I wasn't one of the wonderful friends yesterday, I was laid up with some crazy flu-ness, but I did read the post (glad you left it up), and I can completely sympathise. I also started my blog for personal reasons and now find myself completely addicted to comments and approval.

Glad you're feeling better! And glad He brought you what you needed the moment you needed it!

I hate when I go back and read my pity party posts. But you know what, we're a human and we are woman. We have many strong emotions. Those pit party/whiny moments may not be our brightest moments but they are real and we deserve them!

Congrats on the necklace!
