quagmire no more

so where have i been these last two months?

occupied with jungle jewels on facebook? yes...
busy with school and finals? yeah...
tied up with the holidays? yep...
sinking into a quagmire of despair? um, mayhaps...
despondent over the things i want and do not have? well, not "things" but people...

lately i've been thinking about the people i miss, the people i trust and those i don't and wondering where my faith and trust in people went...

and all the while falling into a serious funk, fretting over the relationships i will never have with people who could care less about me, and fretting over relationships that weren't what they appeared to be...

and it appears that i've then been missing out on what's been going on here... and obviously forgetting why i started blogging here in the first place--it IS good to be hentzen!
there is so much to be thankful and happy about in my little family here!!

and yet it's so incredibly easy to get lost and blinded by the bad stuff, that you start to lose joy in all of the good stuff that abounds in life... and really it seems that the goods definitely outweigh the bad, but we tend to focus on the nasties!

so here's to a new year of finding the good stuff and i wish the same for you!

happy new year!

Good to see you posting again. September to December can be a funny (odd) time I think. Happy New Year to you all!

Glad to see you back :) I wish you a happy
and prosperous New Year!

I have had a low year and can relate to
what you are saying. Things will turn
around for the both of us. I like to see
the good in people but sometimes it
is hard when people can be so mean.

I know this year I will leave
my blue funk behind! :)

We are very proud of you, David and the boys. You and Maria seem to have had the same December. 2010 will be better.
