I heard the story of the crab apple tree today and the call for prayer requests for our burdens that are seeming to be too much, it hit me hard. Yesterday I was ready to quit, not suicide, but just give up, quit trying, quit moving. My adopted son (of 8yrs) has been very non compliant (disrespectful), he just turned 13 and thinks this is just given behavior for his age. Anyway, it took half the day, and we are back on track, but it was bad. Part of it is the lack of "happiness" in this family. I am a single mom for over 16 years now and am very independent, but there are things that are just too much for me and I'm not able to do. I have home improvement issues that are beyond my capacity and I am soooo overwhelmed and stressed with this. I had it "under control" then the company did not come do the work, another company said it would be $10,000 to do it all correctly. Beyond this I do have health issues, but dont like to use them as an excuse, but I never have energy, so my household suffers, and affects my family. I just appreciate this outlet to vent :) Thank you for the invite. I do listen to your station on a daily basis but I believe this is the first time I wrote in. Anyway, pray as you wish for God's will, but the main issues are my home needing to be fixed and my son staying on a Christian path through his teen years.
Again, thank you for this forum and invitation to use it.
