Have you been in a place where you were pressed by way too many needs? Worried about the outcome of something in your life? Wondering how in the world it will turn out?
I’ve definitely been there. Mine came most heavily after Dan died. I was not just crushed by grief but also overwhelmed with the immense task ahead of me. Dan and I had entered this parenting thing together and I could not imagine raising seven kids without him. Teen boys that needed a strong dad, a little boy just coming into his own and our littlest girl who was just starting to know her dad.
On top of all that, Dan’s death brought with it lots of paperwork. I had so many decisions to make, forms to complete, errands to run, calls to make, accounts to set up or close, people to meet with, issues to manage.
