First...thank you all for your kinds words and rejoicing with us in Titus' adoption finalization - we just feel so thankful!

Do you ever have a day where all you want to do is crawl into bed and never come out? That was my yesterday...

I'm struggling with a situation (nothing to do with any of you or my husband or kids, I assure you :)) and I'm pretty sure I'm blowing things out of proportion but I'm frustrated. I think that was the start of my bad day but I just felt myself emotionally falling apart throughout the rest of the day - and no, it's not my monthly visitor. My very sweet husband came home, fed the kids and put them to bed so I could have a little space. I'm praying that the situation will be resolved and really won't be a big deal and I'm praying for renewed emotional energy today - I need it!

I have made a practice of not dealing with upsetting things (thing that upset me - not disagreements involving another person) in the heat of emotion - usually if I give it 24 hours or so, my perspective improves. I'm not espousing going to bed angry but rather seeking a better outlook, a more Godly response and hopefully a more gracious attitude.

Praying that things get resolved today. It is tough to deal with "life" when something is bothering you.

I am having that day today. I will pray for you because I share with you. Thank you for sharing.

Rejoice with those rejoicing, weep with those who are weeping.

Sometimes life is well. . . frustrating and confusing. At least for me that is for sure. I hope you are doing better. . . know you have many, many friends.

Oh sweetie! Sending you some positive vibes and prayers! Hope things get better!
(BTW I would crawl in bed EVERY weekend if I could! LOL!)

I can SO relate to that. I have been dealing with *stuff* lately too. I am so thankful that God doesn't change no matter how my moods and struggles affect my outlook.

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living!
Wait for the LORD;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the LORD! (psalm 27:13-14)

I'm so sorry, Alaina! I obviously had not caught up with your blog when you called yesterday, or I would have asked how you really were =). Hope things get better soon.

I so can relate and I'm so happy that I have our Heavenly Father in my life to help get me up everyday!
But there are those days that isn't going to happen and that's when I have to give my body a rest. That's when it's a blessing to have my husband and son in my life. Just as you have a terrific hubby in your life.
