Today has been a blah day. I just wasn't feeling too well. I didn't do any housework or watch TV or play with my kids. I asked Mars to take over today. I needed to get in bed and sleep or lay down in complete silence. Mars is the best husband in the world. He encourages me take time outs and have "me" time. After all, he wants his wife to stay sane, right? I think maybe everyone's problems sort of take a toll on me. See, I'm the listener of the family. Everyone confides in me and tells me about their problems. Not necessarily needing advice, just wanting someone to listen. I love the fact that they trust me and feel comfortable confiding in me, but in listening to their problems I kinda take on some of the weight. I worry about them and am constantly thinking about what I can do to make things better for them. Well, I've just now realized (better late than never, right?) that the best thing that I can do is PRAY. Take deep breaths, IN....OUT.....IN.....OUT.... and hand over all those troubles to the Lord. Hand them ALL over. Ahhhh, I feel so much better now. He's the best, isn't he? Thank you, Father. I love you.
