Worried Mind.

"And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do.
The jury's out, but my choice is you.
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine.
And life makes love look hard-
The stakes are high, the water's rough, but this love is ours."

My husband is amazing. I know this is what he was trying to tell me about a month ago, when nastiness reared its ugly head. People are always going to try and bring you down, no matter what it is you're doing well. Someone is always going to perversely jealous of your situation, albeit how effed up it really is. 

We will sunshine our way out of this. And I have to think that of course people would be jealous of what I have with Aaron. We have by far one of the best marriages I've ever seen!


  1. ... and they can't take what's ours.

    (or in this case, yours)

    This too shall pass. Hang in there, dearie!

  2. I have found this poem helpful when the turkeys are getting me down, xo:

    The Paradoxical Commandments

    People are illogical,
    unreasonable, and self-centered.
    Love them anyway.

    If you do good,
    people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
    Do good anyway

    If you are successful,
    you will win false friends and true enemies.
    Succeed anyway.

    The good you do today
    will be forgotten tomorrow.
    Do good anyway.

    Honesty and frankness
    make you vulnerable.
    Be honest and frank anyway.

    The biggest men and women with
    the biggest ideas can be shot down
    by the smallest mean and women
    with the smallest minds.
    Think big anyway.

    People favor underdogs
    but follow top dogs.
    Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

    Give the world the best you have
    and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
    Give the world the best you have anyway.
