While hot, it is a lovely day-perfect weather for the pool. We are stuck indoors, baby napping and my trying to play with Charlotte this morning (not going so well because she is punishing me for leaving her yesterday - you know acting out, getting into things, etc.). Doug is back at school and our lives now adjust to a new way of life for a while.
My loneliness is not a new struggle. It is something I have been dealing with since before the first of the year. With Doug gone, my sister back in Texas, and most of the rest of my family out there waiting for the arrival for my little niece (who is due tomorrow but seems to be taking her time) my loneliness has just welled up once again.
At nearly 31 years of age I am learning a lot about myself. I am a project person and sometimes I think I focus on projects so I don't have to "deal" with things that I need to. There are lots of things that play into my current lonely state - some are my fault and some of this is just the place the good Lord has placed me. I don't have any encouragement really to offer here just a request for prayer for me and to ask that you take the time to talk to someone you haven't talk to in a while. You never know what they are going through and how they may desperately need you right now.
A happier post about friendship is coming soon. I am looking for pictures that I can use to post - I may have to dig in some boxes to find a few. :) Praying you find peace and rest in whatever you are dealing with today!
