I know most people would like me to not write, but just post pics of my cute adorable kids on my blog, but I am having a week and I need to vent! This week (or more like today it seems) has included the death of a friend's husband, the end of a job, fighting with a spouse, lots of tears, a funnel cloud, and abuse of trust, just to name a few. And all of it has driven me to being overstressed and not coping! I say all of this not for sympathy, but to let it out, so my husband and children do not have to hear it or poor people who happen to call at that moment (thanks Anna for listening about one issue and poor Brooke another). I know all of this stress could have been prevented, I know, I know, I know. I also know I put the Lord's time on the back burner this week and have not laid it at his feet, but tried to cope with it all by myself. Why do we do that? Why does it take a daily sacrifice of laying it down? None of this happened b/c I did not read my Bible or spend an "x" amount of time praying, but I do know I could have coped with it alot better had my tank been full on the Lord and turned to him for strength. That's all just needed to talk it out. Thanks for listening.
