I posted last week about the crazy load that I feel like I’m carrying and how sometimes I don’t think I can manage it for much longer. And I got some really great suggestions/support.
But the more I thought about it (and the more I talked it over with Jessie), the more I realized I had it wrong. The picture should have looked like this:
Yes, I do a lot to support, encourage, accomplish each of those “blocks.”
But each one does a lot to support and encourage me. (Well, maybe not the finances and cleaning bits. Those are just draining…)
Particularly DB and the girls. They give me a reason to keep going. They give me hugs and kisses and awesome moments to remember when things get tough and I’m tired and just want to run away.
So when I think I don’t have anything left to give and I’m going to go crazy if one more thing needs my time and attention, I just need to look at them and see all the things that they give back to me.
