One. Tough. Week.
Have you ever had a week where you just want it to be over as soon as possible?
There wasn't really anything BIG this week . . .
but it's just been TOUGH . . .
The Marriage is in a TOUGH spot.
Relationships with Big Kids are in a TOUGH spot.
Younger Kids are going through a TOUGH spot.
Close Friends are going through TOUGH stuff.
I have found myself close to tears so. many. times. this week . . .
about things that usually wouldn't put me "over the edge".
Usually, just one or two areas of Bright Spots
are enough to keep the balance . . .
but when every. single. area. of. my. life. is in TOUGH mode,
it is HARD to keep the focus where it needs to be.
When the marriage is STRONG,
we can face most anything TOGETHER.
When the Young Ones are doing well,
my days go oh. so. much. smoother.
But, when both of the above areas are just. plain. "off".,
the daily dance through life is not. so. easy. any more.
Please keep me in your prayers,
that the Lord would bring . . .
into each and every area of TOUGH.
I hope you all had a better week than I did. (smile)
