I have been overwhelmed lately.
With heavy emotions and sadness over all the tragedy happening all over the world, but especially so close to home. With worry about the future of the leadership of our country. With busyness in our everyday summer schedule. With stress over the things on my to-do list. With frustration, when my kids are at each others’ throats and not doing a darn thing I’ve told them to. With, with, with.
I need to breathe. I need to pray. I need my friend.
Luckily, she is literally on her way to my house right.now.this.second.!!!!
And with that thought, I feel some of the weight fall off of my shoulders. The thought of an entire week surrounded by my children and my God-daughters rekindling their relationship with each other, while being in constant proximity to my best friend….just soothes my soul.
Usually, we go to Montreat during the summer. Or at least hide out in the mountains for a week. But this year, the whole crazy train is coming to my house, and I couldn’t be happier. So I’m signing off for the week for some much needed Betsy-time. Follow me on Instagram if you want to know what we’re up to!
Have a Blessed Week!
