An Eeyore Day
I am having what I commonly refer to as an “Eeyore Day”. They don’t come often, but when they do, I am very sad – “Oh dear” – (deep sigh). I am actually a very Pollyanna sort of person – to the disgust of some who shall remain nameless. I have trouble staying depressed or angry or bitter for more than a few hours at most – even when I’m justified. Just the thought of any sort of confrontation makes me want to run rapidly in the opposite direction. I want everyone to be happy. However, this morning I woke up with a little black cloud over my head, and it simply doesn’t want to move on.
I probably shouldn’t be writing, as moods like this tend to be rather catching. I can’t quite put my finger on the reason why I am down in the dumps – I just am. All of the things I don’t normally let get me down are suddenly very heavy. Even the little nagging problems seem like just too much. Can’t I get a little ray of sunshine here?
I should be in my little place praying and reading the word. Why is that so difficult to do when you are feeling low? I suppose that’s it really –“feeling”. Faith has no part in all of this; it’s just the way I FEEL. I feel sorry for myself. That’s it in a nutshell. Woe is me!
You know what? I’m beginning to feel a bit better. I think just putting it into words (written words) is making me feel better. Nothing has changed, but I think that little cloud is dissipating. Is that a bit of sunshine I see?
Thank You for listening. And thank You Lord for being patient with me even on these “Eeyore Days”.

Hope you're feeling better. I feel like this sometimes, I guess it's just part of life.
