To the woman who’s lonely in a house full of people

To the woman who’s lonely in a house full of people

As we sat down to dinner, I watched the faces of my husband and children as they dug into their meals and happily discussed the events of the past week. My own family had no idea what was going on inside of me; how I really felt. They would have been shocked to hear the truth—that while on the surface I appeared bubbly and engaged, I felt like I was dying each day on the inside.

For the Exhausted Momma: It Can be so Hard to be Needed by Everybody

It can be so hard to be needed by everyone. The husband wants a back rub, the baby wants to be carried, the dog is whining for her dinner and walk, the cat is weaving between my legs meowing incessantly for some attention.

When you’re a Christian but you hate your husband

When you’re a Christian but you hate your husband

He had just let me down again. My heart splintered and my emotions raged. I glared at him across the table and all I could feel was hate. This really isn’t what I envisioned married life would be like at all. I’d given up on ‘happily ever after’ a long time ago.

To the woman awake in the middle of the night

Hi there, friend. I just want you to know that I see you and I’m here with you tonight.
