I cannot be everybody's everything.

I just can't.


Lately I have been exhausted.
You may have noticed that I haven't played in the tea room lately.
"Moon River" and "San Antonio Rose" just don't have the appeal to me.
Plus I'm tired
of everything.

My dear mother has been in a rehab facility. That does not keep me from taking care of her.
She needs so many things.
(Yet thankfully she so wants me to take care of myself. -Thank you, Mother.)

And my little grandchildren (one of whom is a special needs child) are so dear, but me telling them I'm too tired to play with them just doesn't 'cut it'. They want Grammy to play!!! (Well, sometimes I say 'no, not now' and thankfully they play by themselves.)

Sometimes, though, I need to stop the world and get off... even as the world keeps spinning and spinning.

I'm writing this, I guess, for sympathy.
And need for prayer.

Yeah.
Would you pray for me... that I would have strength, and patience, and wisdom on how to deal with everything?

THANK YOU.

(I wasn't going to write this blog post. It seemed too 'needy'.
But I'm thinking I AM needy - and it is okay for me to be.)


(And yes, I know I have blessings galore... and should count them more.)

I will pray for strength for you if you will for me. Some days you just need to rest, regenerate and be at peace with yourself. I am sure you are missed at the tea room but when you are ready, they will be overjoyed to have you back. Love sent your way!

Lordy Lordy, Look Who's Forty!!!

It's Cap!!! His mother was my identical twin, so he is MORE than a nephew to me. And he was (is) the first grandchild of my parents (and...
