One of my best friends is spending the night, and like we were in college again, we've been up late talking. It's way past my bedtime and we have to get up at 6am but I wanted to make a quick post.
I just ask for your prayers. This single parent thing is tough [as some of you know] and lately I feel like I'm failing to give Emrie the consistency she needs. So much of my life is different now. Simple things I took for granted when Amy was alive are accentuated on a daily basis. Like this morning for example. In order to make an early hospital call, we had to spend the night at my in-laws. This provided me the opportunity to slide out at 6:15am and Ann would be there when Emrie got up. Over the past 9 days she has spent the night in four different places, she's with a different sitter every day, and though she rolls with the punches I feel guilty. I pray for wisdom and discernment and ask God to let me know if something needs to change. I'm willing to do something different. I just don't know what to do.
I've always admired single parents. But I now feel their pain and sense their struggles in a way unlike before.
