Being totally exhausted

This is how I feel today….


Have you ever felt this way?

I know that most of you answer yes to this.  It is normal, life is exhausting.  Being physical or emotional or at times just both.  Today, I’m emotionally exhausted.  The last couple of days did me in.

Sometimes I just sit back and think, oh you are stronger than this, hell you spent almost 2 years living in a hospital with your daughter.  Seeing my husband only on weekends, then dealing with watching my daughter at the beginning get weaker, then after the transplant watching her struggle to get better.

The nightmares do not go away, they fade, but they are always there.  Whenever Lauren has a procedure done, it takes so much out of me.  I say to myself, “I can’t do that again”, but if I needed to, I know I would be able to find the strength.

All the news was good, so it’s time to take a deep breath and take a little time for myself.  I think I only need an hour or two.  Maybe, I need to watch a good Life Time movie to relax.

All of our lives are different, some the same in ways and others totally different, but I do know we all get emotionally exhausted at times, no matter who we are.  And I guess that’s ok.


Thanks for listening


It’s about nurturing,

After a month and a half of watering, weeding and pruning I finally picked my first tomato.  There are many to come, not ready yet, but soon.


When you nurture something or someone, you take so much pride in the outcome.

Nurturing can take on so many meanings, depending on your life style.  It could be a new puppy, a vegetable garden, your lawn, and to some of us our children.

Here’s a thought, it may not always turn out the was we expect, or anticipate, all we can say to ourselves is we did the best we can.

Maybe you can take a moment and think about everything or everyone you nurture in your life.

Just a thought for the day.
