Need To Find Some Happy

For some reason a lot of the stuff that’s crossed my mind lately has been a little sad or emotional…today I was watching bits and pieces of Antwone Fisher (great story on foster care issues) and this poem kinda hit me in the gut and made my eyes water just a bit. 

Who will cry for the little boy?
By Antwone Fisher

Who will cry for the little boy? Lost and all alone.
Who will cry for the little boy? Abandoned without his own?

Who will cry for the little boy? He cried himself to sleep.
Who will cry for the little boy? He never had for keeps.

Who will cry for the little boy? He walked the burning sand.
Who will cry for the little boy? The boy inside the man.

Who will cry for the little boy? Who knows well hurt and pain.
Who will cry for the little boy? He died again and again.

Who will cry for the little boy? A good boy he tried to be.
Who will cry for the little boy? Who cries inside of me.

So somebody, SOME body, please tell me something happy!?  Between those songs and pages I made for my grandparents and stuff like the poem above…well…I’m about tired of my eyes watering like this. 

The foster care thing is going okay…Little Momma is still taking really good care of Little Bit and has opened up to me slightly.  She is only a couple of months away from aging out of foster care and I’m not sure what the court is going to decide about her and Little Bit, but I hope, for her sake, that it works out for her.  Still don’t know what will happen after Monday, but we’ll see. 

Munchkin only has a couple weeks left of school before graduating Kindergarten…yikes…can’t believe she’s gonna be a first grader in a few months.  Oh no…here I go again…I need another Dr. Pepper.  And a tissue. 

Somebody?  Happy?  Hello?  Any happy out there? 


  1. Sorry hun but I have been feeling blue all week myself. How about a long-distance hug?

  2. "Count your blessings again, again, and again! Start with the one where He saved you from sin. After you number them all, give the praises to Him. Then turn around and count your blessings again!" -Collingsworth Family, Chours from 'Count Your Blessings'

    Our family learned this song recently and it's a really peppy happy song. Great words and message too. :o)

  3. I believe anytime a Christian is faced with sad news it can really hurt because we are like Christ & have a love & compassion for all. Even when it doesn't directly involve us. Unfortunately there is alot of bad in the world today...but also there is alot of good. One of my alltime favorite scriptures Phil 4:8 is a great 'picker-upper', LOL! Think on the goodness of God & it will bring joy!

    Love ya Friend!!!

  4. K is getting adopted & S didn't have to go back to bio mom, that;s my happy :)
