This mama wanting to give up at times, is real.
And daughter’s planning weddings and mama’s ideas clash,
words are spent in the wrong way, and the pain is real.
And two kids being sick and not getting to the bottom of it
and trying a new diet and doctors still not having answers
and trying to guess which way to go is real.
Feeling overwhelmed, unappreciated, emotional, raw
and sometimes alone, is real.
But when life seems a big mess dumped on one small plate
barely balanced on my head,
and then a friends 8 year old daughter is discovered this week
to have Acute Myeloid Leukemia
and started chemo the next day —
her life and her mama’s is much more fragile than my stress.
It puts a different, more real perspective on what really is shattering.
And I am reminded again, life is short.
Some things really don’t matter.
But forgiveness and love does.
His mercies are new every morning
and so should mine be.
And we matter to Him.
That is real.

Please pray for Bree,
who will be spending many months at a time
in the hospital for intensive chemo therapy.
