_MG_0758There are minutes.

Hours.

Days.

When it’s all too much.

When everything hits at once and I just want to collapse.

Cry.

Crawl in a hole.

Run.

One child with autism – now on ADHD meds.

Two with CF.

One of those that’s currently ill – and facing possible hospitalization for the second time in a year.

One of those that also has behavioral issues that make me wonder just how to handle it all with her.

A dad with Parkinson’s…which is rapidly growing worse.

A mom I want to help, but am clueless as to how.

A brother I haven’t spoken to in 2 years, with whom I’m now making baby steps to repair that relationship.

Finances.

A new job I never wanted, but needed to get.

A surgery to “Fix” a problem…that didn’t work at all, and might have made it worse.

The list goes on.

And on.

And I forget how to breathe.

I forget which way is up.

But I move on.

I continue on every day as I have every day.

Eventually I remember how to breathe.

My brain remembers how to process.

I find solid ground again.

Today I’m upside down.

Tonight sleep won’t be easy.

But maybe tomorrow…

Tomorrow will be better.

      Thanks, Michelle. The hugs are welcome and needed today. We got some good news (no hospital stay)…but it came on the heels of a broken heart for the boy…so this silver lining held a dark cloud. ~sigh~

    Sorry friend. Times like this are so hard. Praying for you and your family. Let me know how I can help?
