I cried as I washed the dishes tonight.
I try to keep things in this space light and cheery and happy but some days, just are not that.
He snapped, I snapped.
No one’s mood could really be changed.
He’s stressed, I’m stressed.
Life is full of stress.
Of course there is much to be happy about and there are still smiles but most of the day, I just wanted to cry, so at the end of it, I did.
The kiddo’s projects for school become my projects.
One child isn’t feeling so well.
Another fusses and gets fussed at.
It’s not perfect. Ever.
He feels it, I feel it. THEY feel it.
I want to feel different than today. But some days it just all seems so insurmountable.
And then I feel like I shouldn’t feel this way, like I’m being ridiculous because I’m so blessed, so loved. But I’m only human. So I still think, how could someone like me feel this way? How do I have the right to feel this way?
Surely you have days like this too? I cannot be the only one. But sometimes those around us just seem so “perfect”, like this type of day would never happen to them.
I don’t want to be negative or sound like I’m “whining” because that is not who I am. But today I did not feel very positive. I just wanted to crawl under the covers and not come out.
Not an option.
Valentine’s to assemble when my heart just isn’t in the mood.
Cookies to be baked and yet I’m just not feelin’ it.
A pit in my stomach that won’t go away.
A mood, a way of feeling that I hope I can shake with a good night’s sleep and new day dawning…
Even though I’m a bit frazzled, I’d still love for y’all to link up… xoxo
