I fell down the stairs and...

I truly believe staying "positive" is good for the soul!  As it says in Proverbs 15:13
A glad heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by grief of mind the spirit is cast down.

Well...I'm human like every one else and there are times I just want to grumble and be miserable.  In fact, I would probably be rather good at it...but...I refuse to let myself "go there". 

I remember when I was 9 months pregnant for my 10th child.  My due date was just a week away and I was headed down the garage stairs to get in the van. 

The whole family was in the van waiting for me (yeah, I'm always the last one out of the house..lol).  Anyhoo....I fell down all the stairs in the garage.  Yep...every last stair connected with my backside!  Praise God, I went down all of the stairs via my butt....bump, bump, bump, bump, bump...ouch!

Walt and all the kids were horrified though...they all came running out of the van screaming, "Are you okay??!"
I answered in my usual way, "Yeah, I'm fine.....but, man...I just found a really quick way to get down those stairs!  ;-)"  lol.
It's not always easy being "cheerful"...but...if God is telling me that a  glad heart maketh a cheerful countenance, I will try my best not to be a miserable chick.
Thanks for letting me share my life with you...As I mentioned yesterday, I feel a genuine connection with all of you...
Know that I truly care. 
You're not just some "cyber character" I've happened to run across on the internet.  I know you're a real person, with real feelings and real needs!  I'm here for you!  You are like family to me! 
May God bless you!  Love and blessings to all my family (meaning YOU!), Wendy C.

Dear Wendy,

I pray hope your son comes through his surgery just fine.

Thank you so much for the messages you send each day. It’s often difficult for me to see the upside of things like you do. I look forward to your messages in my inbox every day very much.

Thank you so much for all you do. You are truly one of God’s very special people.

Dear Wendy,
Thank you for your spiritual guidance articles. They are spiritually enriching, inspiring and strengthening.
You and your family are in my prayers. Thank you for your prayers. Please pray for my husband who is starting a new job in Asia and a relative who is seeking employment. Thank you.
God Bless you all,

Enjoyed your words of encouragement today. Much needed. Fell down about a week ago and just had surgery for broke hand and torn ligament. Feeling kind of blue as I am pecking this with my left hand when I am usually right handed. I know God has a plan and I am trying to see good in this. Difficulty . Worried about my job. Please keep me in your prayers as well as my family. Thanks.

I totally feel for you. Though I am only 22 (almost 23), I try to have an attitude like you do.

I have congenital glaucoma, so I was born with it. As a result, I have done stupid things before like run into walls and such. One time, I accidentally drank vinegar instead of water (it was totally my mom’s fault though).

You just made my day. I will comment often. god bless.
