Stuttering Shell: falling to pieces?

Friday, July 2, 2010

falling to pieces?

it sure seems like it.

last sunday, my marriage was very close to being over.  very close.  we yelled.  we cried.  we accused.  we fought.  we hurt.  we blamed.  we {almost} gave up.

and then...we made up. things are fine now. 

there's a lot of stress weighing on our shoulders at the moment and we're slowly, but surely, drowning in it all.

more stress & uncertainty was thrown at us just yesterday.  top off those three hateful letters in the mail with a very sad, unsuccessful phone call to adam's father and it's easy to see why we're stressed, on edge & barely hanging on. 

but, i'm not quitting.  not on adam.  not on myself.  not on my family.

Hang in there.
I am telling myself the same thing too.
I have come upon a lot of things that are hitting me in the face right now and there are times I want to give up.
But I remember hard times in the past and I got through them.
It has been a saying in our family that God only gives you what you can handle and I am trying to be strong for that reason.
All the best.

I am so sorry life is just taking stabs at you guys left and right. Keep your chin up and hang in there.

I really think 2010 is a year of tests. Like she said above God only gives us what he knows we can handle. You will only come out stronger in the end.

I'm here for you remember that.

Sweetie, I am so so sorry. I don't know what to say to you - I am praying for you and thinking of you, seriously all of the time! I'm so sorry that you and Adam and the kids are having to go through this. I don't understand why things like this happen. Seriously I'm here for you - if you want to cry, talk, go for a walk. Whatever - you name it. And I have lots of unopened wine in my house too!! xoxo

thinking of you! i read this quote a few weeks ago in an oprah magazine at the nail salon and ripped it out - i keep it by my desk for moments of greatest desperation: "to live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly... to listen to stars and buds, to babes and sages, with open heart; await occasions, hurry never... this is my symphony." -william henry channing

Bravo for you! My marriage has come close to feeling over a few times, but we've worked through it all and are stronger than we ever were. I wish the same for you!
