This Five Minute Friday is one for the ladies...

It's time for another Five Minute Friday.  This one is something I never expected I would write and make public by hitting that publish button.

If you happen to be a guy who reads my blog?  You WANT to stop reading now.  Step away from the computer and go watch The Ryder Cup.  'Kay?  Thanks.

The prompt this week is "grasp".

* Start *

Some days I grasp.

I grasp for the positive.  I grasp onto things to be grateful for, because there are nature things working against me.  As much as I can mold my mind, make my mind happy the nature stuff just takes it in the other direction.

You know what I'm talking about, right ladies?  Guys? Well, you'll just have to go ask your wives or girlfriends.

If it wasn't for Eve.  You know I read something just this week that made it sound like the reason we deal with this is because that darn snake tempted her with that apple.  And she took it.  So:
 To the woman he said,  "I will make your pregnancy very painful; in pain you will bear children.  You will desire your husband, but he will rule over you."  {Genesis 3:16}
Oye.  That's heavy.  Oh yeah...and that darn snake.  Grr.

Makes me crabby.  Oh wait, everything is making me crabby today.

But its a good test.  It tests me to find what it is that helps me find just an ounce of joy, an ounce of life to not be crabby and short tempered about.

Please pray for my husband.  And my kids.

Okay, I'm kidding...a bit.  They'll make it.

If they're lucky.

No, but really.  I grasp for the the other weeks every month where I don't feel like this.  And I know you do too.

What an odd thing to write about, right?  But the writing is what helps me lift some of the weight.  Along with the list of 1000 things to be grateful for {I've been filling it quickly today}, and the knowledge that someday?  I'll go through menopause.


*  Stop  *

And if you have gone through menopause, but this week still comes around?  
Please, PLEASE do not tell me that.  I need it to look forward to.   Ha.  Haha.

Oh my goodness, I can relate! I stopped by from FMF. Did giggle a bit reading this, thinking back to myself and my own poor husband those few days each month. Enjoyed reading your thoughts on "grasp".
