It has been a really full day and I am beat. Tomorrow and the next are just the same. I need supernatural strength and endurance from heaven. There have been a few times this week when I wanted to just sit down and cry. I pray my sleep would be multiplied tonight. Good-night.

For crying out loud! Buy some rabbit ears!

I just wanted to tell you something just as encouraging as what you told me when I was crying out for help. I hope it helped you as much as it helped me!

Love ya!

And they call you a "stay at home mom". You're a gem. You can do whatever is put before you.

Wow, whenever I am exhausted from getting up making breakfast getting dressed and getting then to school, going to work, seeing patients and their illnesses, stresses, all day long, get dinner, do dishes, hang clothes, or clean the stinkin bathroom, ughh, I will try to remember you did at least twenty five more things and have a life sucking the life outta you and will simply be grateful for the life I have. I will pray for endurance to run the race. You are a great mom, great wife, sweet friend and always have time to encourage others. Be blessed.

I know these days well! Well, except the burrito part. I'm always amazed on those days how I get through them gracefully, even though sometimes I too want to cry.

The Lord is faithful to the busy.

I think the word "said" is being totally overused in blogville. Other than that, thanks for blogging!
