Its your Birthday

Happy Birthday to my best friend, companion, lover, husband.  He is 50 today.  So I wracked my brain thinking of something I could make him.  This is what I came up with.

50 States in Our Nation for my now 50 year old Hubby

Here are a few of my Easter creations.

It was too funny my mom didn't understand that her Peeps are her kids.

Finding the joy in everything

Some days are just harder than others to get motivated. Even getting out of bed is a battle and I know I'm not the only one.

Finding the joy in everything is a hard mindset to get around.  Especially when you suffer from depression.

Yes I enjoy my Family & Friends. Yes I enjoy my two German Shepherds. Yes I enjoy all the needle art creations I make.  Yes I enjoy my Essential Oils. Yes I enjoy the beauty of Utah.  Yes I enjoy writing a blog or in my journal.

But yet some days are just so bad that getting to the next hour is a struggle. I guess there is only so much the joys above & medications can do before the mind gripping depression blocks the joy from entering into your brain.

Its hard being defective. I guess on some days you just have to find the joy that being defective is okay.

Here are some of the joys in my life.  Thank you to all that help me find those joys.
