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…
