I don't feel like going anywhere or doing anything. Right now it just seems like nothing brings me any joy. I just want to be left alone. However, that's not really conducive to being a good mommy! It would be nice if 5 whole minutes could go by without somebody needing something from me! I'm not sure I have anything left in me to give right now. I'm empty.
Just now, I went to Esther's blog (where I go often to be spiritually uplifted) and guess what was there???? This precious, precious prayer:
Heavenly Father,I awoke this morning in a bad mood
and I have been unable to shake it so far.
Everything bothers me
and everyone rubs me the wrong way.
I just cannot seem to get my true bearings.
Help me to think of your salvation-your countless gifts and overwhelming love for me.
Let me relax and forget life's cares by placing myself wholly in your hands.
Grant that this mood will soon pass and I will be able to bask in your love
and communicate it to others.

Thank you, Esther!!!!!!
