Yeah, I'm there. It just seems like everything happens at once.  Let me run down the last week -

*Found out that we couldn't move forward with the referral we received.
*Found out my mom fell down an entire flight of stairs.
*Julianna gets sick.
*Water company calls - it "appears" we have a leak.
*After investigating, we do have a leak. We just don't know where.
*Our dog has been sick.

Seriously. It's enough to make a person looney. Along with all of that comes worry for me. I am just naturally a worrier. I try not to be, I just can't help it.

I am worried about my mom. She really messed up her foot. I am really worried about why/how she fell. Did she just lose her footing? Or, did she black out? She has a strong family history of brain aneurysms (her mom and two sisters), and it just makes me worry. She promises me that she just tripped - it was dark and she recalls it all happening even though she was unconscious when she reached the bottom.  Other than her foot, she really seems fine now though.

Julianna is better, thank goodness. I just hate it when one of my babies gets sick.

We aren't sure about the leak yet. It appears to be outside, there are no indications that it is in the house. We do have an area of our yard that stays wet. So it is probably there. My worry is how much is it going to cost to fix it?

And don't get me started on the adoption stuff.  Ugh.

I think a good cry would do me some good.

I'd have a good cry too. I always say a problem (or problems in your case) shared are problems halved so thank you for sharing with us that we may pray for you today. I cannot help but think your blessing is just around the corner.

God loves it when you give your worries over to HIM.
I'm so glad your mom is okay. That sounds so scary! It sounds like it's been quite the week ... and I think it's really going around BIG TIME. (There IS a Spiritual Warfare going on beyond what we see ... it gives me goosebumps.) Stand firm that God has it in hand and He will work things out in time. And what a praise that the leak was identified and that it's NOT in the house--what an added headache that would be!
PRAYing that you receive a re-referral soon!!!

We all need a good cry have it out and don't feel at all guilty about it! I agree with Valerie that you are under attack from the enemy, and that only happens when he's got a good reason to try to keep you down. You're obviously doing something right!!!

It's OK to cry. A lot if you need to. ((hugs))
