A Little Overwhelmed
I'm having a bit of trouble lately feeling overwhelmed. You know that as a Mom, we feel like we have to take on everything and make sure things get done. There seem to be so many BIG things in my life right now in addition to the normal things. I know that this season will pass, but for right now, it is taking so much energy. In addition to my normal life (i.e. raising two teenage boys and maybe giving a bit of advice to my two college girls, working, and serving in my ministry at church), I am trying to plan my daughter's wedding which will be in January. I am trying to get all of the planning done by the time that my youngest son, Davin, has hip surgery. He will be in a body cast for 4 - 6 weeks and during that time, I do not anticipate being able to do much except care for his needs. There just seem to be so many details for both of those major events and yet I don't want this time to pass by too quickly. At the end of this time, my daughter will no longer be sharing our last name. We will no longer sign her name when we sign Christmas cards and she will have another home. I am very glad that I know I have a Savior who cares about the details in my life and I don't have to do it all alone.
