Tonight's post will be a short one, since I am literally nodding off as I type, but I needed to take a moment and say THANK YOU.
Thank you for the comments and e-mails of encouragement after yesterday's post.
And thank you most of all for the prayers. They were truly felt & effective. While I can't say that yesterday will go in my scrapbook of the Top 10 Best Days Ever (if such a scrapbook existed), and while I may have had a little less patience with my children than I should have, and there were definite moments of weakness and sadness... I can tell you that overall the day trended upward and it ended with me in a much better place emotionally than where I started. And today has been SO much better than I anticipated! And yes, that was helped along by a visit with a dear friend who I hadn't seen in 10 years AND a beautiful 65-degree day... but ultimately, it was the prayers of my friends that have kept me afloat.
And good night. ;-)
