Mom's a Case of Baskets


It's been a Call-Your-Mom-And-Have-A-Good-Cry kind of day, but I was not on friendly terms with the phone.
Instead I cried over everything, and at any time, in the presence of all, for the glory of none.
And do I even feel better for it?
Not yet. I think there's a pretty good supply of tears left in there still, and it's not even 6:00 pm!

"Why?" You ask.
Because I'm a hormonal basket case, that's why. No, I'm not pregnant, and yes, I have a small list of things that would make anyone cry today, but none of them tragic thankfully.

For all the tissue that was used up, there were some *"God Wink" moments:

At several opportune moments Olivia came over and stroked my hair "You're a good momma, Momma." she said to me.

And Zachary took it upon himself to clean the kitchen - wiping table, sweeping the floor, and washing dishes included! After that, I discovered both boys straitening the downstairs - Clayton even made my bed:-)

So here's how I know it was a hormonal day... I responded to these acts of loving kindness how?

By blindly searching for the Kleenex box through the blurred vision of yet more tears.
That's okay, tomorrow's a new day:-)

Thank you children o' mine!


*{A "God Wink" moment is courtesy of my friend Diane, who understands my tears, I think, and still we look for the Blessings that our Lord is faithful to pour out on us anyways.}

Thanks Lord;-)

Oh, Sweetie . . . . . things will get better. Know that you are loved - by your husband, by your children, by your family, by your friends old and new, and mostly by your Savior. It's okay to cry - to weep. It's okay.

Loving you . . . . .

Mrs. King - dear neighbor...

Your call was just what the doctor ordered. Thank you!

I talked to my husband right after I got off the phone with you, and he had the pleasure of a little bit saner wife.
I think;-)

I love you too.
You bless me,
Analene

Oh, deary...

I know this sounds awful... but I almost wish I was having one of those days. I could stand a good flush of the system. I am in more of the stand back and obsurve everything with unreal detatchment mood at the moment.

I just finished:
Christmas - at the in-laws.
A disagrement with my husband - at the in-laws.
Being left without my husband - at the in-laws (for four days)

Yeah, I would think I would walk away with the need for chocolote... Right?,... Nope. Nada, zip, zilch.

Maybe I am still "in the zone" tomorrow might be a whole nuther ball game.

I am sorry you didn't call me. Although mabye you did. I hadn't planned on staying a week at the in-laws so, my phone died.

I love you. I hope it gets better.

Analene,

I am so glad you found some *God Wink* moments in there. And If I would have read this yesterday, I would have called...but I am calling you soon anyway...I am sure you read my email!

Your kids are so sweet. What a blessing. And you are a great momma...so just don't forget that!

Love you, and yes, I understand your tears. So feel free to call. I guess I haven't actually given you my numbers. I will email them to you now.

Love you!
