I am feeling super emotional today.

I am wondering again what the future brings.

I am grateful for friends showing up at my house when they knew I needed them more than I did. Turns out they were right.

I am hugging my kids more tomorrow than I did today. They need to know their mommy loves them.

I am going to try to get some sleep and eat more healthy because my body deserves it.

I am blessed that I have my hubby close by to hold me tight and assure me it is going to be ok.

I am going to look back on this time in my life and know without a doubt that it is my faith that gets me through the day.

I am thinking I need to start looking at the good in all things instead feeling like everything is a struggle.

I am meant for something great.

I am determined to find out what that is.

I will find it.

You already ARE doing great things my friend.

You are totally right, sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the "man this is difficult" thought process...but guess what? it is...and you are doing amazing.

You should try to sleep more definitely and eat do deserve it. Sometimes I read a book in the bath while the kids are reading independently before bed. It is so nice, relaxing, and really helps me destress. I am not sure how feasible that would be for you (I think my kids are a little older).

Hang in there...and please up-date us on how you are doing today.

Sometimes it's one step, one breath at a time....but always moving forward, no time to look back. You're doing everything you can do and it will get better, I promise.

Shannon, you and I have never met IRL but you have made a difference in my life. You've made my struggle a little less. You do and have made differences!

You are such an amazing mom! I am sure you find what you are meant for, and I agree, it will be something GREAT!

I'm sorry you are feeling the way you do. It's ok. You're allowed to be human and get emotional. What you do every day is hard. That being said, I think you are an inspiration to everyone around you. Hang in there and know you are loved. Even by people who have never met you!

I think another person touched on this, but I think you're already doing the something great that you're meant for.
Your raising three great kids - two of whom have extra special needs. Not everyone could do that. You're growing a strong family and a strong marriage. Don't take that for granted. Many couples are driven apart by adversity and you're coming together.
Or maybe your "something great" is inspiring those around you. Or being a great example of sacrifice and unconditional love for your kids.
What I'm saying is, keep on keeping on. You're already doing a great job.
