And You are Loved Too

Monday morning when I came to work there were chalk drawings and sayings all around campus. I don't know what they did over the weekend but it was nice to see this one and to be reminded that I am loved (though I've never much doubted that). Somehow this simple chalk message touched me.

I've been trying to deal with some personal things. Things I am not ready to talk about on my blog. My kids are all okay. I still like my job. It's just me. There is something that is exposing some pretty major dysfunctional cracks in my facade. I know I need to deal with the situation but I can't seem to make myself do it. It's kind of like needing to throw up and fighting the need. You know you'll feel better if you just get it out there but you hate throwing up. I need to puke and I am fighting it.

I'm sorry I did not post any sooner and appreciate the concern of those who have wondered where I am and what has been going on. I'll slowly be coming back around and I will be trying to catch up on my blog reading and commenting. I've saved blog posts in my Bloglines reader and I know some of you have been quite active lately.


  1. Good to see you post, Annie. I was wondering how you were doing in the aftermath of the hurricane season and hoped you were okay.

  2. (((((hugs)))))
    Missed you bunches. Write if you need to "talk".

  3. VIrtual hugs and real prayers for you, my friend.

  4. Whew! You've had me wondering if those waters came up farther after you took the pictures. So good to find you back. The wind from all that blew through here a few days later and, with a lot of damage, stripped this area of electric power, some losing it longer than others. In my prayers, Annie...

  5. I know what you mean about the throwing up thing...nothing I hate worse. But you're right you know, you always do feel better after you barf. Barfing can be a good thing. Keep the faith girl..... and know you are loved!!

  6. Just go ahead and barf it up... you know we'll stand by and hold your hair back.... because that's what friends do.

  7. Glad you're still with us! We'll still be here when you feel more like yourself again.

  8. are loved. I like how flutterby said it.

    We are here anytime sugar...anytime.

  9. Ditto on Cynthia's comment...whatever the "major dysfunctional cracks" are, know that you are not alone (even if it feels that way)...


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
