Feathering My Nest. Our other sister, Kelli, is a sweet encourager and prayer warrior as well, but she was on a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. I am so thankful for both of my sisters!
I am embarrassed that I allowed myself to get down, especially when I have so much to be grateful for. I think this is more than my empty nest issues, I have had a very hard year. I have had a year of two really big losses; my mother-in-law, whom I was very close to, passed away, and my son divorced his wife and has moved to another state (I am very concerned about that situation). Also, my parents health issues and moving them from my childhood home. Not to mention that my son Cameron got married last August and we moved my father-in-law as well. It really has been a crazy year and I think I'm a bit of a mess.
I am being really honest here just in case there is another mom who is wacko like me and cries after big events and to let you know that you are not alone, I too have that problem and it will get better! With God's help, it does get better! Being thankful is a big help along with reading scripture and spending time in prayer. Helping others is really important too. Count your blessings!
