Feeling fragile

I have not been managing my day well. I took Jessica to her autism therapy this morning, and she would not get out of the car (this is the 4th straight week this has happened). I went into the center and started to cry. This is not my normal coping skill. I just don't feel well. I cannot handle anything well. I took the boys to their dentist appointment this afternoon. They have not taken good care for their teeth and the Dr yelled at me. I felt really awful. First he should yell at my sons. They are 16 years old and I do not brush their teeth for them. But normally I would not take the criticism so hard. I'm just feeling so sick (still). And it really has me feeling both emotionally and physically tired. I hate feeling so fragile, but unfortunately I am still sick.

Lifting you in prayer today, sister!

Dear Jesus, place Your peace that passes all understanding on your child, Amy, today so that she feels Your love, grace and mercy heavily as she moves through her day. Amen

I had a sense that something wasn't right I know God is bigger than us and yet, He cares deeply about us. Have peace in that today. Love you.
All who know and love you are very much aware of what an amazing mother and person in general, that you are. All the hardships will pass. We are praying that you will be lifted up in spirit and healed physically. Mom

sorry this happened.
Your right the Dr. obviously doesn't have good people skills and shouldn't be yelling at you for a 16 year olds behavior. They are big enough to take care of themselves. He's the one who should be yelled at, if he expects to have patience he needs better people skills.

I hope you feel better soon.

You do have a lot on your plate.

Pray for encouragement and strength to get through each day.

Love, Ya Shell

I'm so sorry about your rough day, Amy. I'm praying for you now. I will 2nd what Rick said. God is bigger than us and our circumstances. God Loves you so much. Eric

chicken coop idea

Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.

I love the idea

I think I've loved old stuff my whole life. I love 2nd hand stores so much more then new stores. And a container house is really just taking what is old and using it in a new way. It's cheaper to build with and good for the earth.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Juergen worked all day at the old house. This is after working every night there after work. My poor sweetheart is so tired! And he showed the house to 3 different families. It was too big for all of them. 2 families had no children, and one had a baby. It has 5 bedrooms, why do they look at all? And Sarah had a 2 hour cry over cleaning her bedroom. I think the cry had more to do with Juergen being gone all the time. We are feeling a little beaten up. I'm sure it will be OK, but it's hard not to feel discouraged. Part of this is just being too tired. "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. " Proverbs 13:12 We are feeling the pain of a sick heart, but still hoping for the tree of life. I hope it all get’s resolved soon. And for tonight, that we can rest. Everything looks dark when you are too tired!
