I have some cute things to blog about... a trip to the Art Gallery with my daughter, a Tiger Party attended with Scrag... but actually I am feeling too blah to be cute today.
We had a night visitor (the big boy with nightmares) so me and Mr G had pretty rubbish sleep after that. I am aching all over, my mummy-shaped body is feeling every day of it's nearly 40 years.
I had a disappointment last night. Something hard I had been preparing to face just got a little bit harder when I received an email from someone I had been counting on to support me (sorry can't make it, you'll have to do it without me). I went to sleep on Mr G's chest with tears still in my eyes and feeling the weight of years.
So instead of being bright and perky, I'm offering a window into my tired, sad soul. And sending out a big cyber-hug to anyone else who's feeling overwhelmed.
Here's a verse I am going to cheer myself up with:
"We are hard pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken; perplexed, but we don't give up and quit; persecuted, but God never abandons us; we get knocked down, but we are not destroyed..." 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
