Messages I Can't Ignore

Here's the really cool thing about blogging and connecting with people through my blog... When I call out for some support, a little help... the response is astounding. It's not the number of comments in the past weekend... it's the quality of them. It's the private messages I've received on Facebook- concern, support, ideas, understanding. It's the chat with a friend. It's the hug from a friend at church. I've received all the right messages today. I've been reminded of where I've been and how far I've come. I've been assured that this is normal, that I'm not failing, and that it's my job to love my kids in even the hard times. Learning how to love the important people in my life, especially when it is hard to choose love, that is my challenge. I feel less alone, more supported, uplifted, and reminded of God's grace and timing. Thank you.

His grace is often revealed to me in precisely what you described by the responses.

I have found in the last several months that my blog friends seem to be there for me in a way that my real life friends haven't been. I'm not sure why it's turned out that way, but I know it's nice to have SOMEONE in my corner when I'm going through the hard times.

Meltdowns are understandable - lately it seems like I'm having them weekly!

I've found w/ "internet" friends in general, sometimes it's easier to relate b/c you found one another via shared hobby/lifestyle/purpose. Since they may have gone through the same thing, they are more likely to understand it than your lifelong BFF who is a CEO w/ no kids or whatever.

I see your in Indy - my hub grew up on the east side :). We really may be new BFFs!

You are welcome. You are welcome to know that you are not alone out there.

Keep it up— you'll do just fine.
