Hey! If you need help, I am totally there. Let me know what you need. I would LOVE to help with ANYTHING!
Megan-What do you need help with? Please call and let me know, I am happy to help! Mel :)
I'm feeling the same way with 4 kids now. So grateful for everybody who's so willing to help us so much, but still feeling overwhelmed at my responsibilities and how tired I am all the time. I just try to tell myself "it's okay to be tired" and also to let people help as much as they volunteer. I'm glad Dan's picking up the slack. Joel's been doing that, too, and I just let him while I go to sleep (again). It's good for your husband to take the lion's share, sometimes. We all know it's usually the other way 'round with the house responsibilities.
Last week I was so sick, suffered a little depression, and slept through most of my life, but my sweet husband did it all. He cleaned the whole house, got the kids up when I couldn't even think about getting out of bed and a million other things. I guess I don't totally hate those times because it's when I realize what a truly wonderful husband I have. I sort of get to fall in love with him all over again or at least my love goes a little deeper. The hardest times in my life have often turned out to be my sweetest memories with my husband. I guess as time passes I look back and realize that I'll take a little hardship to have those times with him. And that goes for everyone else who helps out. The past blessings I have gotten have talked about how my time of hardship will bring people into my life to help me and through that I will gain life long relationships. So I think your are so right to let people help and let people take care of you...from that you'll gain deeper relationships with those around you. Look at me going on! I am such a nerd! :O) I love you and I think you are wonderful! I pray every night for all my family member that are pregnant - that means you! :O)
As ridiculous as this sounds I believe it sometimes is a blessing from Heavenly Father to have too much on our plates. I think it gives others a chance to help and serve in our behalf. We all need times like those because you receive blessing from serving as well. You are an amazing girl...to be a mom, to teach a bunch of kids, to be pregnant, with twins no less, and moving....I have faith in you...you are doing a great job. It has been so fun for me to get on your blog and see those numbers on your baby ticker go down and while it may be overwhelming for you to see that time getting closer, I can't wait to meet your sweet children. Becca told me you are moving this weekend, so good luck with everything and you are in our prayers even though we can't be there with man labor and all! We love you tons!!
