Growing hard work.

For me it's so draining emotionally, physically & mentally,
it's taking away my appetite...
but at the same time making me really want comfort food*.
And hugs. And a party that I did not have to plan.

I can see why I put off growing up-
I was not ready for it and probably just could not have handled it.

I am thankful that God has brought me to the place
where I truly love and appreciate my Mom,
I could not be doing this right now if it weren't for her love & help!

To the younger girls reading this post:
1. Make your Mom your best friend & confidant.
2. Do not fear growing up. We only grow up once! =)

".....But dreams do not develop without fearlessness
To step outside and face the biting winds
And when you step outside, you'll feel the need to close your eyes
But keep them open wide
You need to see the barriers to tear them down along the way
Don't despair, shatter your glass house
And You can breathe fresh air
Destroy it with the stones you've had for years
Throw your stones"
taken from the song: A Glass House, The Fool's Cage


*I know that it would just make me worse, so I shall content myself with other things that are on my diet. (The last 2 weeks, I have been trying VERY hard to be a good girl again.)

I love you honey and I'm honored and BLESSED to be the one to help you through this rough time. I'm sorry I didn't realize before that you had these things to deal with. We've just been so busy over the last few years that it's been easy to miss. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hang in there! He is faithful and merciful. You just need to LET HIM work in you and TRUST HIM for the outcome.
Your dear, sweet mama!

And really, the "growing up" is basically spiritual growth that all of us need from time to time whether or not we think we need it. :-) We all tend to fall into the traps of worry and fear, not trusting Him. Rest assured, He WILL bring trials (large and small) that will drive us to our knees to keep us focused on Him.

We've grown a lot this summer and closer through it all. For that I'm very thankful. We are getting "shinier" by the day! :-)

And remember, we often go through trials so that we can comfort others and lift them up when they experience similar things. You really should start writing that book. :-)
