Yes, Karen, so many times. And sometimes if I'm tired I give in. But then I feel so bad about it, I go into my room and cry. So true! It certainly is OK to feel sad and upset. You are a wonderful mother and woman of God. Stay strong. And thank you for this message.

Stopped by to visit and say "hello." I always enjoy your vlogs.

Amanda - Thanks. You're a blessing to me.

Angie - You're welcome. And thank YOU for your kind words.

Melanie - Thanks for stopping by. I was just thinking of you and praying for you this morning! I was grocery shopping, and bought some green onions. Always think of you when I see green onions. *grin*
Anyway, I'm glad to see you.

During the 28 years now that I've been a mom, I have "felt that way" many times. I do have to say since I'm 2/3 of the way to being and empty nester, my boys who have given me a tough time are the ones who tell me they love me and have grown up to be wonderful men. IF I can offer encouragement, it would be "this too shall pass".

We don't have report cards as moms and parents so we don't know if we are doing it right. Thank you for your encouragement and inspiration that helps us through the rough spots.

Ummm. Today. Somehow the rain here has made the kids crazy and I'm just not up to it. Wishing I had a better attitude all day.

Cee - The greatest encouragement is the thought that one day, Joshua will be a wonderful man. It helps me when I hear from other moms who have "been HERE." Thank you!

KM - Sorry to hear today has been rough for you. Things have been kinda crazy here, too. Makes me so thankful that God understands my struggle and cares for my heart.

I have felt that way many times and have to confess I have even given in a few times too. :( The guilt at those times can be overwhelming. It's so encouraging to know that El Roi sees and understands what we are feeling.

Did you know that there is a rainbow over your head in this video? I believe that every rainbow is specifically placed by God. :)

Love you my friend!

Thanks Karen. So needed the reminder that I can go "up" with my feelings and He knows.
