1-99 SparkPoints 8

Well, I got Rebekah to meet her ride and I was FIFTEEN minutes early and had to wait on them, praise the Lord! Of course, I did not sleep well worrying I would be late, tossing and turning, thoughts going round and round in my head.

My youngest, Jonah (7 years) and I went to counseling today. I knew he would enjoy being able to talk today without everyone else there. However, I thought I would get a few minutes to talk, but he took up the whole hour, LOL! Oh well, we prayed at the beginning, so I think maybe he NEEDED to talk. He amazes me with how smart he is!

Jarod (16) took his driving test today and passed, Praise the Lord, so he has his Intermediate Liscense. There would be no living with him if he had not passed! He took the car to work tonight and i think hubby is starting to worry he will go running around without asking. I do not think he will, but sometimes he surprises me!

Since I did not sleep well, I laid down for a nap, fell asleep and woke up a couple hours later wondering what day and time it was. it took a few minutes to re-orientate myself, LOL! However, I am still tired, so will be able to sleep tonight.

My mind has been twirling in circles again and hubby thinks it is because I am making "mountains out of mole hills." I think it is because I am still trying to make sense of some things and have come to the conclusion I am just going to have to write down my questions or the things I want to talk about and pray for boldness to just do it so those things quit running through my mind.

I think it might help if I write a letter as if I am face to face with this person and then if I feel relieved, I do not have to share it, but if I don't then I do (hope that makes sense).

Yeah, I am being vague on purpose... if you have questions, sparkmail me.


Anyway, relating back to the title of this blog "escape?" I do not want to write the letter now, so I am going to go lay on my bed, turn on the radio and escape into a book! Maybe I will drift off into peaceful slumber and feel better tomorrow.

    Sometimes escaping into a good book helps me work out my problems because I just quit worrying about them.

    I have a service I offer for free, write me with your worries and I will worry them out for you! OR, as I was reminded in an email the other day, make a special box and put God's name on it. When you have worries put them in the box for God to take care of for you!

    BLess you Shannon, you are strong and will make it through!

    I like the letter writing also. Just because you write it doesn't mean you have to send it if you don't want to. Take care & take the time to enjoy things!!

    I think your letter writing strategy sounds great. It will probably be very therapuetic. (I can never spell that word!)

    Your nap sounds heavenly. I was in bed by 8:30 and woke up feeling great at 6 this morning.

    And, yes, I will be DONE until July 17.
