Where's the Love, ya all????

Maybe I'm just a wee bit emotional today b/c I skipped my meds or maybe it's b/c I watched sappy shows! I don't know! It could be b/c I am sick to hell of winter and considering we have a 70% chance of snow tomorrow and today the weather was simply beautiful, could send me into a big blob of emotional hell! Who knows?

But this is what disturbs this cracker!

Abuse of children, abuse of animals, abuse of elders, abuse of friends, abuse of ourselves, abuse of God, abuse of spouses......and this sucky list goes on and on and on!

I'm just tired of it!!! I'm simply pissed! I look into the eyes of my loved ones, and I weep! I weep because I can't imagine hurting my child, my hubby, my parents, my sister, my in-laws, my dogs, my friends, my God or anyone else. The sweet angelic face of my beautiful daughter whom is catching a cold, my sleepy hubby, my lazy dogs, my sweet neice and nephews, my doting parents, my giving in-laws, my beautiful friends!

And then I watch the news or a Barbara Walters special and see the faces of the abused children who's parents starve them to death because their drug addiction is more important then their flesh and blood. Children who are starved for food and attention! Innocent little people who can't save themselves and unfortunately, cannot be saved by others. I look at animals who have ribs protrubing out of their skin b/c their owners have forgot to feed them for the 20th day in a row! The distressed look of elders, already withered and worn, saddened b/c their own children or care givers feel that they are to old to be worthy of love any longer. Or those whom diss on God and try to convince others to diss on him as well!

Where the hell is the love??? Where did it go wrong for this people?? What horrendous

incident(s) lead them to be hurtful and mean?? I pity those lost souls and pray for their healing! I do! But I also leave little room for excuses!

So tonight I am going to kiss my sleeping child and hubby goodnight, pat my dogs on the head or rub their fat over-fed tummies, thank my God for the blessings he has handed to me without anything in return, and lay my head on my pillow and cry! Cry tears of joy that I have not been one of those abused and that I am not the abuser! And then I might dream of happiness and hope! Because this is all I can do right now!

I'm sorry for the sad post! This is a side of me you will rarely see! I like being upbeat and positive. But sometimes I need to reflect on the blessings! And I am a spoiled, spoiled child of God!

And my heart is plentiful with love, hope, laughter and happiness!


Thank you God...for loving me and caring for me!

(just a few of my blessings)

I get this way sometimes, too hun. However, a few months ago I decided to turn off the news and cancel the papers and it's helped immensely. Perhaps, I suck...but i just can't handle it anymore!!

Yes. So true.
I really try to avoid the news and shows like 20/20 or 60 Minutes because it takes such a toll on me.
The world is a harsh place. Everytime I hear a story of abused children or starving children all I can think of is, "WHY???". It just breaks me to see these innocent souls, these pure angels, being dumped on. Makes me ill that they are not cherished and loved as they should be. Ugh.

Because I deal with much of this professionally, I choose to live in a safe and comfortable place when I close my office door! Sometimes that place is just in my head, but most of the time that is in my home too. We choose not to be news hounds and actually very rarely have any TV on other than cartoon channels or movies that we choose for escapism. My world is always what I make it--even if it's fantasy!
