Silence = Emotional Health

I had a really hard day yesterday. My hormones are raging (no big surprise) - and I miss my husband like crazy - especially in the evenings when Jace is super fussy. We have a lot of stress in our family right now. And, yesterday just proved to be too much.

But, today is a different day and God's mercies are new everyday (thank you, Lord!) And, I'm so so so so blessed to have great friends. We've had meals every night for a week now from people at church - and even a couple freezer meals came today from a friend in our homeschool support group. Its amazing what a huge help that is.

Then, this morning, Amy came and took my kids to play at Jumpin' Jacks with Pastor Lori and Micaela. They fed them lunch and then took them to Amy's to play for a while. I can't even begin to thank these ladies enough for the time today. I didn't even realize just how great it would be. Jace is sleeping and my house is quiet. I feel like I've been given a little slice of sanity!! Thank you, ladies! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have been a real blessing to me today!

I know it was really good for my kids to get to blow off some steam as well. I'm sure they needed it as much as I did!

So, thanks everyone for all your help!!!!

I can assure you that for my small part in your 'slice of sanity', it was totally, totally my pleasure. You have always done so much for me, and for our family, I was so happy to give you a few hours of serenity:) And to top it all off, we all had a blast today!!

You are truly an incredible wife and mommy and you more than deserve a break and I'm so glad that you got one today. I wish I was closer so I could help you too!

Thanks for letting us snag the kiddos for a little bit. It was fun to hang out and I'm sure glad it helped. We have to connect again when we get back from vacation. We can have a packin' party!!
