mentally exhausted

Dear Brian,

I cannot muster the mental energy to write to you lately.

Everything else in my life - from establishing my trust, to researching counseling, to handling life insurance and social security, to managing a constant stream of whining and never-ending fighting that is physically escalating each day - is draining all of my mental resources.

I am spent. I am sorry.

I miss you, Brian. I love you.

KEEP BELIEVING

    sending you some roses,
    a rose for you being my friend for 13 years
    a rose for you showing of your inner beauty
    a rose for the love that you are
    a rose for peace of mind
    a rose for the one that can help with the paperwork
    several roses for that special touch in your heart, that might bring you comfort at this stage of Summer vacation. How to keep the boys busy. I so remember those days.
    a big Bouquet of roses, to many to name, yet each one to bring a Joy to you. Making it for an easier day with the boys.
    Angie, in my heart and spirit I see myself right there with you. I so wish I could take away your pain.Believing that these words are making you feel a little better. Love you Marjo

  2. Angie, I am one of many blog readers who seldom comment but often pray. I am praying for you and the boys. Asking God to comfort you with his peace and surround you with his presence.

  4. I am praying, praying, praying. I pray for you and the boys every day Angie.

    I know God will see you through minute by minute, day by day, if you just hand over the reigns and let him take over.

  5. I understand the feeling. Life is hard. It throws us curveballs. But God is faithful. And in control. I just keep handing it back to him.

  7. I wish I could offer some actual help, but you don't know me and I don't live where you do. So, all I can say is that I hear you, and I feel your pain. And I wish wish wish wish every good thing for you and your family.

  8. Angie, Good News! Many of things that are stressing you out right now are temporary items on your "To Do" list. I know it sucks, and they are necessary evils, but you can do this. Some things we just have to plow through. Soon, they will be done.

    As for the boys, take a deep breath and please do whatever it takes to protect your sleep. We all function better with sleep. Take a breath again and try not to overreact to the bickering and fighting. You can always seperate the kids into opposite sides of the house without anything noisy to do for an evening. As much as they are fighting they probably would hate being away from one another also and a little boredom might be helpful too. Hang in there! God will show up in the details just remember to ask Him!

  11. Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
    There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
    Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
    As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Morning by morning new mercies I see.
    All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
    Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

    Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
    Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
    Join with all nature in manifold witness
    To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Morning by morning new mercies I see.
    All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
    Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

    Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
    Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
    Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
    Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Morning by morning new mercies I see.
    All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
    Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
