Get Down Off That Cross!

I started to write about how crazy things are, and then I thought, "Well, yes. Everyone's life is crazy right now." So then I started to write about how I'm trying to balance my stress and self-care, especially after my scare last week (thanks for the nudge, Barbara!).

And then I found out about LutheranChik's mom.

And now I'm reminded of what a friend said once when I was moaning about all the stuff I had to do, and how no one was helping me, and how I needed to let others take some of the load, but it was so hard to let go of things... He looked me straight in the eye and said, "Get down off that cross, honey, someone already got crucified for us!"

My self-pity party is now officially over.

i have to admit that when i saw your title for this post, i immediately thought of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert...in the hotel when one of the drag queens says "get down off that cross, somebody needs the wood."
I'm glad it wasn't that. And i'm sorry you had to have a pity party! (remember...the thing i always used to say to people in the hospital: no matter how bad other people have it, it's always bad when it's you, and it's okay to say that.) I hope your week looks up.
