The long and winding road

Somehow today doesn't quite feel like a "Frivolous Friday" so I think I'm going to skip the funny signs and just share with you from my heart. This has been a really busy week for me. I mentioned in an earlier post that I had to fly out to Texas after church on Sunday so that I could help deal with an emergency that called for my intervention. I returned on Monday night, only to head out to the doctors office on Tuesday morning with my son. He was having his finger checked since it was still swollen and didn't look like the surgery had managed to solve the problem. We ended up having another surgery scheduled for yesterday morning. We were at the surgery center from 10.00am until 3.30pm and it turns out his little finger is broken. They fixed it and want him to lay off football for at least three weeks and possibly more. So here I am... exhausted, dealing with a frustrated teenager, thinking that I am so not ready for my Lead Team meeting on Thursday evening (not to talk about service on Sunday!), and all this is just the tip of the iceberg. Have you ever had one of those weeks? One of those weeks when you want to crawl back into bed, pull the covers up over your head and just let life make it without you? If you have, you'll know exactly what I'm going through. If you have, then you won't mind me asking you to spare a prayer for me today will you? Have a great weekend. I'm really working hard on ensuring that I do too!
