My Clutch is Out

I don't even have a manual transmission, but I must be missing something because my ability to switch gears is gone.

For a little over a week I have delegated other people to watch over my kiddos so I could be up at the hospital with my Dad. I would return to my house and do some cleaning and maintenence work, then head back up there where I played a different role than I have been playing as a Stay-at-home-Mom.

So now that Dad is home and ready for "normal" life to return, I'm finding that switching gears back to this life is extremely difficult for me. I am emotional and unable to make decisions.

The Lord timed it well because I have a retreat this weekend. Please be praying for refreshment for me to return to my job well!

Seeing as what you have just come out of, it is not surprising. That's a lot to deal with, and the adrenaline that got you through and the "need to do" tasks, are now gone. This retreat is definitely perfect timing...only God! :)

I sympathize with you. I'm still having a hard time adjusting after my surgery. I'll be praying for you. Let me know what you learn, it might help me as well. I didn't even realize that was the problem until I read your blog. Thanks!

AnD you think you are having a difficult time changing gears....I can't even find the car, much less the clutch!!!! I do know how hard this has been for you and your family. Thank you for being with me in all of it. I love the unity of heart we have, especially in the hard times. We can take the new driving lessons together!!!
