Today exhaustion has set in.... The procedure was suppose to be at 1pm and they didn't come and get her till 3:30. This week has been test after test..... The results will hopefully be in on Monday from the procedure....
Today I had to leave a situation because my heart was aching so much for a little girl.... This journey is lonely! At times you feel forgotten and replaced... I understand those things... Peoples lives move on, people lose interest in the "story," or just can't handle that you aren't out of this season yet... People replace you at your job, others are taking your role in the home and with your kids, etc. It's one thing to be a 32 year old facing that, but another for an 8 year old to be dealing with those feelings.... Today I felt forgotten and replaced... So God put a little girl in my path that felt the same....
Most 2nd grade little girls are enjoying school with friends, playing outside in the cool weather, and just being a kid.... there are several things about this "season" that are hard to deal with, but the hardest is seeing kids whose parents are disconnected.... Kids who feel forgotten and replaced by their families just.... breaks my heart. Please be in prayer for this little girl....
Disclaimer: Please don't think that I need sympathy for feeling forgotten today... This is a feeling that most people have felt or will. The most important part is dealing with the feeling, turning it over to God, and using the feeling to help someone else... Sometimes that's just by saying, "I know how you feel!"
