Peach State says: This Is My Happy Face!


Do you ever feel like you have the world on your shoulders? Do you ever wonder why your children do what they do? The proverbial slap in the face stings and radiates causing a ripple through many areas of your life. Mothers, tend to see things in a larger than life picture filled with what-ifs-and-scenario-pathways. With the recent disruption…my emotional roller coaster ride has tossed me around like a rag doll. This Is My Happy Face!

Just when you think things could not possibly get any worse….WHAM! I struggle to pick myself up and try to make sense of the situation. The hours and days of self-doubting as the tear ducts over produce salty waves of confusion. How in the world do this ever happen? A once clear forehead show signs of canyon like crevasses. This Is My Happy Face!

I apologize for being a drag today…but I needed to vent! Wish I could sit down and binge on some chocolate. “I don’t need the fat…the calories…or the sugars!” At least the word happy is somewhere through all of this…there is hope…right? A rough road lies ahead but together we will make it!

Have a great day!

Peach State


About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
