Empty

Y'all, I'm spent.

I'm running on fumes now, and I'm having a hard time finding the time and energy and even the want-to to refill the tank.  When it gets like this, it is easier to just retreat and hide.  In my bed.  On the couch.  Anywhere it is dark and quiet.  Away from phones ringing.  And children talking. 

Today I've hid.

And I'm fighting the urge to not hide tomorrow.  And the next day.  And the day after that.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm so glad that even in the rough days of weepiness and exhaustion, there are some giggle-worthy moments.  Like this pajama clad Super Spy who has taken over my home....

Definitely graduation slide show worthy.....

Amber, Thanks for reminding me that I can still say something when I feel totally empty. The times I "feel" empty seem more than the times I "feel' full.

I have no sermon or prescription. Just know you are loved. My Christian counselor recommemded a book that I have just begun read. The title is "WHEN I SAY NO, I FEEL GUILTY." have only read a little, but I think one point he is making is; to not feel bad about feeling bad.
