Update

While busy, overwhelming, and sometimes spirit breaking, life is not unmanageable.

I apologize for my recent absence.  I have been trying, very unsuccessfully, to coordinate the Keep America Warm coat drive.  Sadly, due to a lack of interest and volunteers, I don't believe this amazing program will be coming to fruition.  I do encourage you, if you have extra coats in your home, please find a place (not a Goodwill or an outfit that sells your donations) to donate them. There are countless men, women, and children right in your own city that cannot afford to buy themselves a coat this winter.

Also, in case you missed my #PINT post, I am having some serious struggles with my daughter.  I am exhausted and worn out from putting out her fires. I have been endlessly disrespected, manipulated, and stepped on by this little girl and have come dangerously close to my breaking point with her.  While I don't think I'm ready, her in home therapist (Sanity Support) is once again looking in to the option of a residential behavioral therapy center for her. 

While I do have some things coming up - giveaways and such - I am at a loss for content otherwise.  There are many things going through my head, I am just having difficultly forming them into coherent statements worthy of typing.  I have several posts in my drafts that have maybe one to three sentences.  I'm just not able to find the words to continue. I even got a text from one of my BBBishes last night asking me where the hell I've been.

Please know that I am well, physically. Mentally, I'm a bit frazzled, and emotionally I'm a bit broken. While I try not push my Christian beliefs on to others, I am currently taking hope in knowledge that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." ~ Philippians 4:13

Hugs to you all.  I hope to see you again soon... Maybe even this week!!!

I know how hard it is to have to make such difficult decisions. I work at an RTC so if you have any questions let me know.

I knew I was thinking of you for a reason! I am so sorry to hear these struggles are taking a toll on you. Sometimes our kiddos stretch the unconditional part of our love as far as they can. My heart goes out to you. You are a strong woman, and you will get through this. It was nice to catch up with you yesterday. If you need an extra shoulder, I'm here. *Hugs*

take it one day at a time. No one can expect anything besides that. You'll be back in stride when you are able to.

My mother is having similar issues with my little sister. My thoughts are with both of you, as I look at my little girl and hope and pray for our relationship and well-being, too. Feel better soon love!

Sending prayers your way. That's one of my favorite bible verses.
I have a cross a dear friend gave me several years ago when I was newly widowed. It says.."One day at a time" Such a simple statement that says so much. Hang in there. This too shall pass.
