If Ever I Needed This Verse. . .

If anyone would've ever told me that having a parent go through a major surgery would have this kind of an effect on my family and me, I would've laughed in their face.

I cannot begin to explain the stress.

The weariness.

The sheer exhaustion of it all.

I go to bed worn down and tired.  I wake up. . .worn down and tired.

There aren't enough hours in the day for extra visits, running errands with kids that normally I don't have to do, extra laundry, the additional "dog" who doesn't realize she is a dog. . .I guess I'm whining, huh?

I try to keep this verse in the back of my mind at all times and decided this was the one that I need to truly commit to memory for my SSMT verse.

Prayers are always welcomed and appreciated, though!!

Come unto Me,
all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

~~Matthew 11:28
