Lost in Thought . . .

There are some days when I just want to be able to stop. I want to be able to put all the thoughts out of my head and want to just be able to relax. Lately I haven't been able to do that; it's just been so crazy with work, kids, family, etc. Of course, since the scholarship deadline was yesterday, I have had that on my mind also. Wondering when I will know something or even if I will ever hear anything from them at all.

Well, the scare of last week concerning my dad is on hold for six months; he goes back to be retested to see if there are any changes. And my mom is home sick now with some type of allergic reaction. It is times like these when I really get worried about them; I know that they are not old, but it is something that I really don't know if I could deal with or how I would be able to deal with it.

Which leads me to Wanda's challenge for this week at ASF. It really has created some soul searching for me and I know for the others who have done it. I haven't put anything to paper yet, but I have already shed a few tears trying to figure out where/what I want to do and if I am strong enough to complete it.

I feel the same way. Sometimes there is just too much in my head and I can't function.

I hear you with the challenge. You are strong enough and it will feel good to express it on paper. I am needing to get on mine.

I have faith in you Penny and if you decide you want to do the challenge then you are strong enough to complete it. I also understand if you decide something are just better left on the inside. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!!

Penny - HUGS and more HUGS. Sometimes there is just TOO much going on, but it'll get better. Sorry your folks have had problems. I know I worry about mine alot,too, and whether or not I can take care of them if I need to.

And, just in case you were running out of things to blog about, I'm tagging you (sorry, but I love you!).
