Scattered

My mind is racing while my heart wants to find its way back into bed and pull up the covers.  Both desire a strong shoulder to lean against and to be held by warm arms.  I need to cry.  It is just that need to let it all go – all the pressure of the Nutcracker, the frustration with the parents, the fear for my daughter and her dental health, and then the  love I feel for her and my pride in all that she did this past weekend.

I am feeling overwhelmed emotionally and mentally.  

It is one of those few times I crave help and know that it is hard to find.  

It is one of those rare times when I need someone to lift the world from my shoulders; hold my hand, and say… “it’s okay” – Just to know that I am not alone…

You are absolutely not alone. I have felt this way so many times...and understand completely.

Thinking of you - You know where to reach me if you need anything.

Everything is okay. You have a lot of people thinking happy thoughts for you.

...and I can be there at your side in 10 minutes. I have no water. Maybe we should make something of this.

Let me know. I never know how to help but I am really good at taking instruction.

Be well, TE.

We are all with you... all tucked in there too!!!

((hugs)) my friend. Some days, we just need to re-group. Allow yourself this downtime.

I can totally relate! I sometimes feel exactly like you described. It's tough being a single parent, disconnected from intimacy, bearing all the responsibility of running a household solo. You are in my thoughts. I'll give you a virtual hug.

It will be okay, even if it doesn't seem like it at the moment. Have a good cry and know we've all been there ~ here's another virtual hug for you!

Thank you everyone. Sometimes I think that the hardest part of this is not having that someone around to turn to... I appreciate all your thoughts and hugs!! They mean a lot!
