We returned home safely from vacation Sunday evening. I was feeling recharged and ready to go so I started making a VERY LONG list of things to do over the next few weeks. This week I was going to to plan menus and work on some new printables ~ it didn’t happen. Monday night my Husband found out that his Mom passed away. Tuesday morning his bags were packed and he was heading to Georgia. After much prayer and discussion we decided that it would be best if I stayed home with the kids ~ a very tough decision. We knew that this week was going to be emotional for the entire family because one year ago today my Dad passed away after having a massive stroke during surgery.
My way of not dealing with my emotions is to stay busy. I jump from one thing to the next ~ not really getting anything accomplished. I end up becoming agitated and short with the kids. Sad to say I have not been much of a comfort to my family. I’m sure God is sighing and shaking his head as I write this! This is something God and I have talked about and I continue to struggle with. After reading a WONDERFUL post from (in)courage about refueling your spirit, I decided I need to STOP and BE STILL. So today the only thing on the “To Do List” is spending time reading my Bible and hopefully getting a few minutes of silence.
I’ll be back to normal posting next week.
