Life's Ups and Downs

I always loved roller coasters.

When I was growing up, we lived thirty minutes from Six Flags Over Georgia. Whenever a new roller coaster opened we were among the first to try it out. 

My cousin and I went to Six Flags and rode one of the roller coasters 41 times. The last fifteen or so was in the rain. We stopped riding because we got bored.

The last time I rode a roller coaster I got so sick. Nothing came up but I sure thought it would...I couldn't wait for it to be over.

Now I just want this emotional roller coaster ride to be over.


  1. I don't care for most roller coasters. I don't mind the fast turns, but the steep dropoffs don't amuse me at all.
    When I was a kid I went on the 'scary' rides, but today, I would not do it.

  2. *hugs*

    would this be a bad time to tell you that I gave you an award? Also, I don't remember if I told you or so if I did well congrats again!

    chin up chest out I always say...usually just saying that makes me crack a smile...

  3. I had those rides! Never liked 'em, ever. I'm waiting at the bottom to pull you out next time you pass by. . .

    Hang in there . . . XO XO XO

  4. I love how you compared a roller coaster ride to life. I don't like roller coasters either. I don't like the high drop offs. Make my stomach feel funny. Once I went on one and I held on so tight to my cousin's arm that it was bleeding a little.
    I know life can be "fun" at times and sorry if you are having problems right now. Ride it out and it will be over soon. Remember to not carry it all yourself. The Lord and friends are there to help you carry it.

  5. I hate rollercoasters and if this compares to what you are going through I'm sorry.

  6. *hugs* times a million!

    We're here...I'm'll get through this!!!! One hill, twist and turn at a time!

  7. I love roller coasters, but since having a child (11 years ago) my stomach doens't like them so much! They make me feel sick!

    I hope that this ride you are on gets better~ ((hugs))

  8. All I can and say right here is (((hugs))) and tell you that you're always in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. *hugs* You're in my prayers, right this very second.

  10. Used to love roller coasters and then my life turned into one, too! Sigh.

    Great post.

    And I loved your Census post, too. I promise I'll be nice to you if you show up at my door!

  11. I grew up near a six flags too, magic mountian in California. They had the best coasters and I used to ride everyone too. And now, they totally make me sick too. Sort of like the real life ones as well. I hope yours works out. Thinking good thoughts for you...

    Lots of yummy love,

  12. OMG, I hate roller coasters. Hate them. They scare me to death.

  13. real roller coasters? love 'em.

    emotional roller coasters? not so much. hope you're alright.

  14. Very clever comparison. I just prayed for you, Leanne, and I hope peace floods you so that you can "get back on track" to where you will not be moved by your situation.


  15. I am truly so sorry about whatever you are currently going through. There is so much anguish with emotional roller coaster that all I can do is pray for you and send my best. Hoping all is well...soon.

  16. I used to love Roller Coasters. Not so much these days. Hugs to you and hope yours is over soon.

    Love your blog title - by the way! ;)

  17. I am so sorry I have been away from your blog! You are in my thoughts. Hope things are looking up for you now.

  18. I've always lived about 45 minutes from Six Flags over Georgia. Do you remember back when they ran the Scream Machine backwards? I LOVED it, it was so awesome! We rode it so many times I couldn't count. Of course, that was many years ago when I could still do things like that! I would never be able to do it today, even if I wasn't sick.

    I'm stopping by from SITS. I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e. I'm sorry to hear that you are having some tough times. I haven't read enough to figure out why but I plan to. I will also say a prayer for you.

    I just became your newest Follower as I really love to meet new bloggers, especially fellow sister in Christ! I would be really honored if you would stop by and check out my blog, too, if you have a minute.

    In the meantime, I hope you and your family have a wonderfully blessed weekend!
