I wasn't going to write this, but I feel compelled to. I am having a horrible day. Everything has went wrong today. I feel so weak right now. I am scared we are not going to make it at times. I am trying to be strong... but some days it is so hard to be strong. I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. Financially, health wise, children, it just seems like to much to handle at times. I know God is in control, but I need to see some movement soon. If anybody else is feeling this way I pray for God to give you strength and to help you through all your difficulties. And please pray for me. ~Nita~

hang in there. It's OK to be scared. Are there and social workers that can help you?

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Nita, my prayer/Bible study group prayed for you, John, and Elizabeth Thursday night. And I pray for you guys every day. I wish I could do more.

You have gotten so far already - that shows what kind of a woman you are! Don't doubt yourself and don't give up faith!
Sending you big hugs...oxox

Nita, just take things one at a time and live in the moment. You have made it this far and being the strong woman you are you can go much futher. God will only ask for what you are able to do. As always you and your family are in my prayers.

Being scared is a normal reaction-you will feel differently tomorrow. This being the holiday season does not help either! Way too much pressure. I've been through this before, my husband was also injured at work those were some very tough times and I didn't think we'd make it through. Everyone is right, God will see you through this!

Shelley said...

Dear Nita, hang in there friend, and sister of faith. God is on your side.Double up your fist and give that Devil a black eye.
"Greater is he that is in me , than he that is in the world!"

I asure you thru the mercies of God , brighter days are ahead!
Be encouraged, in Jesus name!

Blessings to all, Shelley

Hi Nita!
I came to your blog to tell you that I just tagged you to list 5 things about yourself and I read your post and now I think it's an even better idea. Just make it 5 good things about yourself. I'm sure it would lift you up to write 5 of the many good things that there is about you. I hope everything gets better. Remember, this too shall pass.
Many hugs!

The weight of the world IS on your shoulders but you have been so strong and you will make it Nita. It is ok to be scared after all your future is uncertain. Have faith as I know you do, God is there . Keep praying. I pray for your family every day.

You look really cute in your dog walking hat!

Jeanne said...

Nita, I am praying for you and your family. But remember you don't have to be strong 100% of the time. You have a lot on your shoulders right now and it's okay to have these moments of feeling helpless now and then. Afterall, you're only human. I'm so glad you decided to write this post so we can all rally round to cheer you. That's what friends are for, right?

Fiona said...

Nita, I think about you guys lots, wishing for all positive energy and support to come flooding your way. It can't be easy but you are strong. Some days you just need a little TLC for yourself so you can so what you have to do. Even the strongest get run down and need some TLC to revive. Hang in there. We're all rooting for you.

I know I live on the other side of the world and can do nothing to offer you practical support, but I want you to know that you have touched my heart and I am thinking about you and praying for you and John and your family.

Sometimes it's ok to feel down or's not fun...but it's allowed.
I often find that a good cry can help to release and recharge. Don't give up Nita! You have so many people and their energy behind you!!
