:: My Day ::

Tonight my husband Christopher helped me with my homework. He's so smart, for a 1/2 French guy that is. I'm lucky to have someone that believes in education and already has his degree. He's helped me through all of it. When we got married we made a deal that first we would get him though college and we did, and now it's my turn to finish. So far everything is going good at school. I love my calculus professor. Professor Samanthanan, she from India and I made her laugh a few times. She's been really good to me. She gave me 110 on my last test. Can't beat that. If I do make it into med-school I can say I've had some pretty darn good professors that helped me.

Today Summer did good at school and she got a happy face. She can read her sight words now, and she always wants to read a book. I think she's going to be smart like her daddy is. Carrigan got a pen and marked all over himself. He is my funny child. Cameron now calls me daddy on a regular basis. I keep telling him I'm mommy and I know he knows that, he just enjoys making fun of me by calling me daddy. Weird hun?

:: All About Summer ::

Today I'm taking my daughter shopping. She's only 5 years old and she's so picky about her clothes. I was never like that when I was 5. I didn't care how I looked or what I wore, all I cared about was playing, but Summer must be in the perfect out fit or she cries when she goes to school. Has peer pressure gotten that hard on kids her age? It's starting young in Summer. My daughter is very friendly and she makes lots of friends at shcool. Last week she came home from school and told me she was going to marry Devon when she grows up. Devon is this cute little black boy in her class room and I thought to myself, when I was her age I did my best to act like I didn't even like boys, but she sure likes boys and is proud to show it. I told her she can't get married until she's 40.

:: My Potty Prayer ::

Dear God in heaven. How do you potty train twins? I have the most beautiful twin boys in the world, but they are so messy and everyday I pray that God will give me the wisdom to make them understand what to do and teach them how to do it, but I'm finding my husband Chris is much better at potty training the boys than I am. I guess he has all the right parts to show them how to do it. But so far my boys have hit every wall and carpet and have yet to hit the toilet. Stay tuned for more on this.

:: Out of Depression and Into Joy ::

By: Ann Stewart

Depression is the most prevalent disease of our time. Under the guise of informing the public, both the medical profession and the media are constantly "warning" us of the dangers and probabilities of the disease most likely to terminate us. News about a lack of sufficient influenza vaccine is enough to get our collective blood pressure soaring.

Bad news is chronic and it affects us all. Do I have a magic pill that will make all the bad go away? No. But, there are ways to help us stay out of depression. We also find out from the media, internet and the medical field that there are many ways to relieve stress and anxiety. I will list them here:

Five Practical Steps to Help You Stave Off Depression:
Get Out into the Sunshine

Melatonin, a hormone produced only in the dark, lowers the body temperature and makes you feel sluggish. Therefore, to get more light on bleak days, install brighter lights in your room, have lunch out as much as possible, and take frequent walks.

Get Busy; Get Inspired

When you do things you love and keep active, it is hard to become depressed. Simple acts like taking frequent strolls, playing sports, reading books, or volunteering in the neighborhood can chase the blues away.

Give Yourself a Break

Sit back, relax and listen to your favorite music, soak in a nice warm bath, get a massage, and spend a day just goofing around. In other words, forget your stressful situation, and have fun.

Eat Right and Stay Fit
Avoid foods with lots of sugar, caffeine, or alcohol. Although sugar and caffeine do spike your energy level for a short while, they eventually cause anxiety, tension, and internal problems. Alcohol is a known depressant. People who drink to forget their problems are actually aggravating their conditions.

Exercising regularly causes your body to produce more endorphins than usual. They are called "the happy chemicals" because of their stress-reducing and happiness-inducing properties.

Get a Social Life

It's not good to be alone too long or too often. Hang out with people who are up-beat and give moral support. Don't underestimate the power of touch. A pat on the back and a word of encouragement go a long way. Hug someone today. You may never know just how much you have touched that person's life. The love and care expressed by others boost your immune system and actually fend off illnesses.
Some Final Thoughts

Making these suggestions is simple. I know; putting them into practice is not always easy. That's why I want to leave you with these thoughts:

Live One Day at a Time

The Bible admonishes us to live each day to the fullest as there's enough evil in one day to handle! Don't look back on past hurts, nor fret about tomorrow. Live today as if it is the only day you have. In The Power of Positive Thinking, Norman Vincent Peale suggests to live each day in "day-tight compartments." What a concept! Each day is so full of the Now that yesterday and its problems are completely shut out and tomorrow is unattainable! Try it - it works! Choose to focus all your thoughts and energy on what is at hand: Today, and do everything to the best of your ability.

Watch Your Tongue!
In the Bible we learn that the power of life and death are in the tongue. Words can both bless and curse. Negative words can evoke great fear and anxiety. The mind paints a picture of every word we hear or see. For instance, when someone says "black cow," immediately you will see that cow in your mind's eye. Although words are not tangible, they have the power to bring about physical matter! The earth was created by the Word of God's Power! That's Power!

You may think: "come on, I don't have that kind of power!" How about curses? Negative words always produce negative impulses, whether minute or major. Conversely, positive words make you feel good. A mere smile and a happy: "Have a great day!" instantly exude warmth. So, be careful of what you allow to sink deeply into your subconscious.

Happiness Is a Choice

Whenever bad news reaches us we have two choices! We can either choose to dwell on it and perpetuate it by speaking about it, or swiftly replace our thoughts and words with constructive ones. Whenever we hear our favorite music, our feet start tapping, right? We start humming the melody and pretty soon we're happy. Our thoughts respond to what we feed the mind through our senses. Therefore, we CAN choose to be happy! At first, if it's totally foreign to us, it will take some getting used to. It means breaking the habit of feeling trapped in negativity when we hear gloom. Let us decide to switch off the minuses in our life and concentrate on the pluses.

Gratitude; the Antidote

Thankfulness is one of the greatest virtues. If you divided a page in two and wrote all your setbacks on one side and all the blessings on the other, you would find that you have far more blessings than negatives. The Bible says to give thanks with a grateful heart for all things.

God Is In Control!
Start each day by giving thanks to God, your creator and loving father. He knew you before you were born and knows your end. He guides and upholds you. All you have to do is ask and trust – just as a small child with his/her daddy. Spend time in the Word, especially the Psalms. You cannot help but come away from that time with Him with a new refreshing, empowerment and warmth.

:: Ann Stewart My Life ::

Today I took my Biology and Calculus Mid-term exams...It was hard. Tomorrow I have to work. I hope I get to work with Dr. Frank Thomas...I sure need him to make me laugh. My daughter Summer did good in dance class today, but I'm not sure she enjoys it...I think it hard competition on her and she feels stress from it...I still think dance class is good for her health. She needs the exercise. I wish I could get my kids to eat more vegetables, but they are such picky eaters. I was lucky to get them to eat fish today. Carrigan did eat a little bit of green beans...but I still have a hard time getting Jethery Cameron and Summer to eat anything that is green. I got plane tickets to fly to New York next New Years. This is for me and my handsome husband Christopher. It's our next wedding anniversary. I'm really excited about that. That's all I have for today.

:: Happy Birthday Christopher Micheal Stewart ::

I guess I'm the girl who talks to much. I seem to enjoy talking though, so I guess I'll just enjoy talking to myself...Today at TSU I made Dr. Martin laugh by asking her if her the same question over and over again...I had a good spring brake this past week, but could use a little more R& R and today is my husband Chris's birthday...I got him a Strawberry short Cake and Cream Cheese Cake too...I want to get him something more but he's so hard to shop for. The only thing he wanted for his birthday was the new Cheers video, but that doesn't even go on the market until the 26th of March...I still want to buy him that truck...but for now the Bonneville will have to do. Happy Birthday Baby...I guess Chris is the best cause he's always taking care of the children while I'm at work and going to school...He's really holding down the fort for me.
