Time Out!

Did you ever have one of those weeks where the weight of the world seems to rest on your shoulders? Where even if it's not happening to you and your family, it feels personal anyway? Where you just wish that time could turn back and everything could be alright again?



That's where I seem to be. It's a heavy way to start a new year, so the plus is that it's only gonna get better. We're healthy, we have each other, and we're a family full of love. We're so blessed. And yet there is so much hurt and chaos all around us. It's hard to not be affected by it.



You'll forgive me if I take a few days here and there when I need time to process things. My mind is preoccupied elsewhere and that leaves very little left over for blogging. If only my mind was as sharp as it once was, but alas I think childbirth has taken it's permanent toll.


I'm just trying to be prepared for what the future might hold.

I'm sorry things aren't going well right now. I hope it all calms down soon. Keeping you in my prayers.

We love you, Karen. I hope you get the resolutions you need & take all the time you need. I just hope you aren't preparing to take a bottle of laxatives, because I cannot imagine needing 17 rolls of tp otherwise :)

Michelle said...

Ouch. Good luck, Karen, and I hope life turns soon. And yep, I totally know what you're talking about with the weight of the world.

And the weird thing? Today I was thinking about how quickly we go through tp and debating how to assign each person their own allotment. The picture you describe is much what I designed mentally earlier today ;)

Leanne said...

Hugs. Come back soon. Oh, and I love the picture.

Just lean on the Lord . . . I'll be covering you with prayers.

I've always got the teakettle ready for a sing and a visit if you find yourself in the neighborhood (virtual works too . . . you know my email address).

Take care of yourself and your sweet life -- I'll be here whenever you pop in for a chat.

I know exactly what you mean about the weight of others' problems sitting on your own shoulders. I think it's called "bearing other's burdens". And it's okay. Keep talking to God about it. And know that He's in control of what's going on. Just be open and available for Him to use you in this season. And let me know if I can be praying?

Great poster.

Take the time you need. More time to get my google reader down. ;)

Oh. My. Gawd. It's like you've been living in my house.
You probably resent that as you have quite enough shit to go around in your own. Yeah. Don't we all? ;-)
