Mulligrubs VS. Motivation

imagesCAZID70N1 John 1:4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Winter is often a difficult time of year for many people. I am one of those many. If there is such a thing as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) I definitely have it. I’m not going on anti-depressants for it, though, just popping a lot of vitamin C and dreaming of springtime! In the south we have a term for this sullen, yucky, pitiful, “Woe is me” attitude. We call it “the mulligrubs.” You can’t really put your finger on it, but you just feel like poop, whether it’s winter time or not. So I’m posting this to encourage myself and others that may be having “the mulligrubs”.
