People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Odious Spring

Ah spring. This beautiful sight provokes warm and happy thoughts in the hearts of many.

Just look at those stupendous colors. The hearts and souls across the country thaw out from a long winters slumber and awake to feelings of joy and renewed life.
Sightings of this kind bring feelings of resurrected hope......
....but to me it means this....
...which leads to this....
...which invarably equals this.....
....and this....

......and this.....for several months.To say that spring was my least favorite season would be totally understating my feelings on the subject. I LOATHE spring. Those nice, springish pictures only mean misery to me . I have year round allergies, but spring comes and every bit of it hits me smack in the middle of the face. I couldn't really find pictures to show how miserable I get but the one below shows how I wish I could spend the next 3 months.

Oh to hibernate in my own personal head bubble.....heaven

That would suck because winter sucks and spring is the door that opens to summer. I really wish you didn't have to go through those blasted allergies.
Stay medicated!

Ashley said...

Sorry about the allergies :( That is no fun, but you sure do crack me up with your posts and writings!

HAHAHA! I love you! Though I am sorry you get allergies, and well I might be there with you, but that was a perfect post to reflect how it goes. Maybe we could get one big bubble and play checkers all day.

Only you could put the full misery the way it truely is!! I know you have always suffered. Hopefully it won't be so bad this year.

Ditto to the above sympathetic postings and your humor in describing it. However. . . I was just reading that the pollen that causes allergies is not the kind that comes from plants & trees that are pollinated by bees but rather by the kind of pollin so microscopic it is carried in the wind, e.g. juniper, pine, etc. Doesn't make it any easier for your suffering, but please--don't curse the beautiful spring flowers--they're not the culprit! Love Mom

I'm sorry you have to suffer. That bites. But you really do crack me up! Now I know where Regan gets her sense of humor. In Sophie's case, she's not trying to be funny, she just is with those crazy, cute facial expressions and phrases of hers. "Popacle peeeese?" :)

Brandi said...

That sucks. I didn't read all the through and I was freaking out that that was really you. This is the second time I looked at it today and finally read all the way through. I am glad that is not you in there. lol
