This has been a hard week for us emotionally. The new "normal" is sinking in and taking hold. It's hard to breath sometimes under the weight of it all. It's hard to function and it's especially hard to plan. We are trying to live in the moment, but those moments can be scary and raw and hurtful. They can test your patience and resolve. They challenge my mothering skills to the core and unfortunately those skills crumble and fail more times than I want. I listened to the sermon from our pastor on Sunday which described so vividly how I've been feeling lately. Please listen if you would like.
I find comfort in the fact that I am walking each moment with a Savior who knows my pain and knows the end of the journey. I am but an untrained, out of shape athlete who has just been thrust into the marathon of her life and I'm just at mile 2 and I have so much left to run. Praying for strength, resolve and grit.
