Gotta unload.

  • My mom has been sick.  Very, very sick.
  • A friend's daughter is in the hospital with pneumonia...she's just a preschooler!
  • Another friend is supposed to deliver her baby on Friday and they already know her son has a serious heart issue.
  • There was a massive earthquake in Haiti.  Thousands dead.
  • A friend's father passed away this weekend.
  • We are relaunching the orphan ministry at church this weekend!
  • My heart is longing to adopt, but I haven't heard God clearly say where or when.
  • My girls are growing up at an alarming rate and it makes me sad.
  • Tony's Mamaw has been really sick and in the hospital.
  • I'm trying to lose weight, but I'm totally struggling.
  • I'm thinking and praying more and more about homeschooling.  Not ready to discuss that, but I'm sure praying about it.  Call it a dream, right now.
  • Debt.
  • Our country's leadership?  *sigh*  Enough said.
  • I want Tony to be happy, challenged, and blessed by his job.  Not sure if this is the case.
  • I'm not a "focused" teacher right now. 
  • I really want to go to Di*ney World.
  • Our laundry pile is beyond ridiculous.  I mean it.  It's like, call the TV show therapists in, high.  Do I care?  Not so much.
  • Blah, blah, blah...there's more...but that'll do for now.

Is it any wonder I don't sleep at night?  That could also be the reason I don't blog.  I have a whole lot in me, but it's too overwhelming to dissect right now.

Just had to pour it all out there.  I know God reads blogs, right?  So He'll see my heart.

Poor friend...I am so sorry. I have also been having "over load" feelings myself. Last night I had to stop myself from posting a blog that just said "I feel grumpy!"
Shall we uphold each other!

Maybe Dr. Phil reads blogs and he will help? Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you.

Of course the Father reads blog...NEVER doubt that :)

I am praying for you, my friend. I hear your heart--so full of concern, dreams, realities and everything in between. God's got it ALL!!!

Thank you for sharing your heart and for being so vulnerable.

Sending you a HUGE hug today.

Ahh, little sister. Unfortunately I can not help you in your challenges other than lend an ear to listen. That offer is for anytime..day or night. But, I know with your faith, you will get through this. Just take a moment and look at the responses you have gotten. You are very blessed to have friends who care and are praying for you! Just breathe...I love you! And really..how boring life would be with smooth flat roads to travel?
