II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Yesterday my mom bought Brooklyn a mood bracelet and a mood ring. Today at church, Brooklyn asked me to wear her bracelet while she was playing so it wouldn't get broken or lost. It has 3 stars on it that show your "mood". We left the little card that tells you what colors mean which moods at my parent's house...but I know one means happy, one means relaxed, one means sad, and so on... Well, today as I was wearing her bracelet, I looked down and glanced at the little stars and instead of seeing one color....EACH star had a different color. One was purple, one green and one was blue! So there you have it...Proof that I am completely and utterly confused. Ha Ha I know my mind races a million different directions all the time but this bracelet seemed like a funny little symbol of how I honestly feel most of the time. At any one moment, I can effortlessly be provoked to anger, giggles, tears or elation. I am such a mumbo-jumbo of feelings most of the time, that honestly if you were to ask me what kind of a mood I was in...I could probably give you at least 3 different answers (or colors on the mood chart). I am not sure why or what has caused me to be this way. Hopefully it is just a phase I am going through (like the phases my kids are constantly going through). Maybe it's a hormonal issue? I don't know. I just know that I really don't like it. I've noticed that I can be talking to one of my friends about some particular subject and be completely agreeing with everything she says...and then later...I can be talking to a different friend who is saying something very different about that same subject and I can totally agree with all the stuff she says too. It's not that I am lying to one or the other...I am being totally honest with both of them. It's just that my mood/feelings about said subject can differ so much at different times...that I actually agree with both of them. Does that make any sense? I know to a lot of people (namely my husband) none of that makes any sense....but surely there must be other women/mom's out there who can relate..!!??
Well, anyway, this is getting lengthy and Grant is waiting on me to play trucks with him...so I better go. Hope you all are having a happy last-day-of-2006!!

The title of this post reminds me of a comment Ryan made to my mom one time. Mom said Ryan was in a bad mood and that when she asked her what was wrong Ryan replied, "Nothing, Nana. I just want to be moody for a while." :) Too funny! But I do totally agree with you and can so relate to this post! I am the same way! (Of course, I am! That's why we're friends.)
