    Thank you for sharing your experiences, and please know we all go through difficult times and struggles, whether we allow them to show or keep them tucked inside. I’m sorry for your loss with your Grandma, and I know how painful that is. I’m glad that you are writing, especially about her, don’t worry about not finishing or publishing them right now. Healing takes time, and eventually, you will be able to share them when you feel it’s right for you.

    Yikes! Those are all valid reasons for a writer’s sabbatical! I hope things turn around fast and you can find some uplifting positives to focus on!

      Debra, it’s funny how fast things change and can turn around. Sometimes things change for the better just as quick as they went downhill. I’m happy to report that a couple of the issues have resolved themselves. God is good!

      This warms my heart….not that you are struggle but that my writing is relatable. Know you are not alone in any struggle. There are always people going through similar issues.

    I really enjoy reading your blogs probably because it’s very relatable to my life right now (minus the two year old). It always reminds me that I’m not alone in what I’m going through. Our a/c, that’s over 20 years old, went out. Luckily, it was the fan motor and just a few hundred dollars. My baby girl is also a freshman this year and that brings on a whole different set of emotions. Hang in there.

    I get it. Totally! Right down to the terrible 2’s and 3’s especially when the 3-year-old has special needs and the meltdowns include beating up on his mama and throwing chairs and items IN PUBLIC! Plus I have the teenager who lives in another world ENTIRELY and I have a 6-year-old who has a pretty traumatic past. PLUS…..I’m 56 years old and I’M TIRED! However, I still wouldn’t change my life for anything! Oh, and I’m also a fairly new homeowner only my warranty can be renewed every year, which is what I have done. We live in Florida and my house has two very old air conditioners so I get the suspense.

    I’m not really comparing. I’m just saying I get it. It is pretty stressful and I hope you can find ways to relieve some of the stress. God bless!

    Hi Amy, you’re being real and honest. Your readers appreciate that because they probably struggle at times too. Let’s face it – everyone does. Sometimes everything just piles up and hits hard, doesn’t it? Keep writing about your Grandma, even though you don’t click publish. One day, you will possibly want to publish them, but right now, it’s probably therapeutic for you to write. I hope everything settles down soon. Life can be pretty tough sometimes.

    Sounds like a lot of change going on at the moment – that often knocks us for a six until we adjust again.

    Life can be crap sometimes and hard! My blog is just muddling through, because I feel that I literally just muddle through. I lost my grandmother years ago but I still miss her. I also get upset and sad when I visit the care home she died in.. (I go there for work reasons) thing is thiugh as time goes by then that pain gets easier but you will never forget her.

    Just keep on going, a day at a time.. and you are okay.. keep writing x x

    So sorry about your loss! Sending love your way <3 <3
    Having been in a similar situation, it really doesn't get enormously better – 8 months or 14 years. Does get manageable.
    So true about everyday struggles – get overwhelming at times! My go to was to stress bust is to get some fresh air, armed with my favourite book!

    I like your ‘down to earth’ honesty in writing about what a usual day is like that we all struggle with from time to time. Keep writing.

    I love your post – it is so raw and honest. It reminds me that I am not alone in my struggles – we are all dealing with the difficult parts of life. Thank you for sharing and being so open. I had to giggle though about your son setting a timer while brushing his teeth. That is kinda cute…

        I’ve been so emotional lately…I didn’t make it through without crying… And I’m not even sure over what. But I wanted to let you know here that I love that we met and that we get to share a little life together on here. Lifting you up, my friend!
