A Mix of Good and Bad News

Have you ever received good news and bad news, almost immediately one after the other? That happened to me last night with good news, and this morning with bad news. The elation and sadness are hard to keep apart ~ they’ve become this swirl of mixed emotions that are inextricably intertwined, and I don’t know if there’s even a name for such a hybrid emotion.

I find myself today wanting to lay in bed under blankets all day, but that’s not really possible with the responsibilities of motherhood. This is good ~ my Baby Bear has been a ray of sunshine, with his bright, big, 4-toothed smile 😁 keeping me from feeling too sorry for myself, keeping my priorities at the forefront of my mind: where they should be. Keeping me moving and not just laying around all day.

The good news I will share with you all soon (no, it’s not a new baby!), and the bad news are a “wait and see” sort of thing.

Today I will wear my comfiest pajamas, and cuddle my baby, and thank God for the good news ~ and pray for strength for the bad news. I think a really hot cup of apple cinnamon tea will be nice, too ☕ I will shut off the phone (or rather, the internet) because a slow mindful day is much better than drowning my worries in scrolling.

I suppose that’s all I can say for now. Thank you so much for reading 😌

Take care and God bless,

✿ Lovely Panda Mom ✿

  2. It’s interesting how what we view as good & bad changes over time. Yet God promises to turn it all into good, for those who love him and are called by him. I think that’s pretty awesome!
