Realization Friday

Happy Friday Ya’ll!!! 

Realization Time!!

I’ve come to realize this week:

~     That my memory kinda sucks.

~     Snow sucks

~     That I am really blessed… I am sitting here focusing on my life.. and the snow, the cold, the driving, winter, etc.  And I read on twitter about the earth quake in Japan and the tsunami that is going to hit Hawaii and California and I realize how lucky I truly am. I could be so much worse off in a lot of things in life and instead of sitting here focusing on the negativity in my life and what I don’t have or don’t want to deal with, I need to remember all the positive things I do have and there are so many others out there that are struggling with things 100x worse than what I deal with and you probably don’t hear them complaining as much as I or a lot of people do. Its just life… You deal with it and you move on. I was reading Jeremiah last night (in the bible) and the passage I read talked about sometimes when life is so hard and you feel like God isn’t there, He is and he is helping you along and making you stronger and making your faith in him stronger. Its during the hard times that we really get to know ourselves and get to know our Lord. So don’t complain about the horrible situation that you are in… find the good in it and know that the Lord loves you and is with you thru it all.

~     That we all need to pray today… for the people in Japan, Hawaii, California, and especially our neighbors.

 God Bless
Overthinking Mama 


  1. I agree we need to pray for all of those people who have been affected.

  2. good thoughts...

    it does notr take much to find aomeone that has it worse that us, huh..

  3. My memory sucks too... ;)

    Hebrews talks about that issue some as well:

    "Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons." – Hebrews 12:7-8

    Hope you have a great weekend! :D

  4. Very insightful. Looking at those who suffer more than us helps us deal with pain in a certain way that we cannot explain. I just wish we did not have to witness the things we are witnessing. Books could have tought us the same lesson.


Let me know what you think... good, bad, and the downright ugly...
