This week has been testing me...........my mom once told me, "The Lord will never give you more than you can handle". I have found these pearls of wisdom to be pretty accurate through the years, my mom gets wiser every year. (grin) The reason I bring this up is because the last 4-5 weeks have tested me in a number of ways, and this week seems to have been the time it just kinda caught up with me emotionally. Turns out, that same phenomenon has been happening to a number of my friends.
I can't speak for the others, but today I woke was laying in bed at 2 a.m. and thinking, "Where did I put that paper that my son needs, did I give that ewe enough antibiotic, and I have to remember to get that A/R report printed for my boss today." I drift off to lala land for a few minutes and wake up from a bizarre nightmare that hasn't reared it's ugly head since my husband got killed in 1989!!! Finally, it's 6 a.m. and I give up and just get out of bed. Just think of all the things I could have gotten accomplished if I had just gotten up at 2 a.m. !! : ) sigh.
As the day has progressed, I have been reflecting on all the things that bring me joy and the many blessings in my life. I get to spend another Mother's day with my mother!!! How can that NOT bring me joy? And no matter how rough life may seem, I always have 100% support of my dear hubby, my son, my parents, my sister & brother, a huge extended family (ps-I have fantastic in-laws) and my friends. God chose to bless me with some pretty wonderful people in my life and everything else simply pales in comparison to the love they give me and the love I feel for them.
Happy Wednesday everyone,
