Always the sameA year ago I got a very special gift. The emoticon stress balls from deviantArt were perfect for me. They were cute, and I just loved the expressions. I didn't pay much mind to how often I squeezed them, since they usually made me feel much better. It got hard, but they stayed solid. They never gave up. They didn't yell at me or tell me to stop. They just did what they were made to do, and kept their expressions through the entire time.Now the times have changed, and. My stress balls have been packed. I can't use them as I once did. I just wait. For my move to be over in hopes that the stresses don't come again. My four little buddies are as safe as can be. I love my little stress balls. They make sure I'm able to handle the stresses of life without asking anything in return. Someday, I hope to give my kids these little stress balls that I love. I want them to know that there is little that these balls can do, but what they have inside of them makes them worth their weight in gold.
