Depression is …

Depression is smiling at the office.


Depression is playing with the kiddos after school.

Depression is making appearances.

Depression is fooling everyone.

Depression is being everything to everyone.

Depression is crying in your car to work and on the way home.


Depression is making sure you have makeup to cover up the tears streaking down your face.

eye makeup

Depression is looking over and knowing you’re alone.

Depression is hidden, secretive, and lonely.

looking for a friend

***I have been going through depression and I wanted to share this in the hopes that someone going through depression reads this, and knows that you are not alone.

If you are going through depression, reach out, serve others, and know. Know that you are not alone.


My Hero of the Day is …

My husband/ex-husband!!!

The nature of our relationship is a little tricky. He and I are physically separated, but nothing has been filed. This has been the deal for several years.

Since separating, he and I have been best friends. We are friendly or both the kiddos and for ourselves. We married our best friends, but the marriage didn’t last. The friendship did.

I have lately been overextended with work, activities for the kids, and everything else. So, as of 8:15 pm last night, I had been signed up for helping to serve dinner at the church (yes, I go to church, and yes I’m active in said church, but I’m not super religious. That is for a later blog). I was also signed up for ringing the Salvation Army bell at the same time as dinner and my little kiddo was in a Christmas program at the church after dinner, but during the bell ringing.

Tonight is absolutely freezing, and my hub/ex-hub offered to take the older kiddo to ring the bell. He and the kid stood in the freezing cold, ringing a bell while I was nice and warm.

I will go more into separation in later blogs, but I would like to say thank you Joe. Now go get warm.
