A helping hand.  My husband just handed me my house key and told me to come inside while he drove the little ones to meet their mom.

I've learned that if I do my stretches (prescribed by the PT) at bedtime, I sleep better.

Taking a walk when I'm nervous helps, and if I'm blue, it helps to go outside and see birds and flowers, or even pure white snow...

I turn up the loud music, like Kalana...then sing at the top of my lungs till my voice is hoarse and I am exhausted.

Or...sharing a glass of wine with my fiance as he lets me vent...vent...vent.:) God bless him and his forebearence.

A cup of tea, long hot bubble bath. The best answer though, reading the Bible, especially Psalms. Psalms chapters 23,26,46 and Matthew chapter 5, many many more....And lastly heartfelt prayer, I can honestly say my spirits are lifted. :friends:

after just having had my youngest (age 2) gs for 2 nights, i've decided that HE is my absolutely best medicine. he has a constant magical grin on his face - i asked him this afternoon if he was my sweet-heart. he said "yeth," smiled and  then added "nana MY thweethot"!

 

that would lift any nana's day!

I sleep. Also if I really get the blues bad I invite my 9 year old grandson over to spend the night. He cheers me up

i think that getting online into one of my groups and helping someone who is feeling even worse than me helps me a lot.
