My heart was broken today

Every morning I wake up and reach for my trusty BlackBerry before I even get out of bed. I always check my BlackBerry before getting up because of the daily scriptures I receive in my Inbox. This morning's scripture was about taking your "Medicine". Not necessarily medicine as in prescription drugs or over-the-counter cold meds, but Medicine as in whatever makes you happy or brings joy to your life. For me, that means many things. My family is usually the first thing that comes to mind. I can always count on a good laugh from them to brighten my day.

Its funny how new inventions in our technological world allow us to stay connected and be reminded of things we often forget to do. It is also an amazing convenience for people like me who have busy lives. I am even able to receive info that I oftentimes blog about, or expand upon and write articles. But this morning was a little different. I hesitated about opening my emails so early this morning. There was a daunting feeling inside of me. I should have known to brace myself for a disappointment.

I put on my Big Girl Panties and looked anyway. My first glance brought me everlasting joy. My second glance brought gloom and doom. I opened up an email from RueLaLa.com to see an absolutely beautiful pair of shoes. But across the image of the shoe were the horrific words: SOLD OUT
"Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!" I think this could in fact be the worst day of my entire life.

Oh the horror! How are you dealing with your pain? Those are damn fine shoes, my friend.

If you need me, call. I am standing by with links to other great, great shoes that might interest you.

Could these possibly ease your pain?

Try to think positive thoughts.
