A few Saturdays ago, I asked my husband if he would be joining us for church the following morning. I should start by saying my husband has only come with us a few times. His response: “I feel like I should go, you know, to check it off the list.”
I keep hearing people say “new year, new you!” The problem is, I don’t feel new. The year is barely a week old and I feel overwhelmed and overburdened. I feel like I can’t do even one more thing, that the tasks ahead of me are too many. Work. Home. Friends. Family. Laundry. Dinner. Cleaning. I feel pulled in so many directions that I can’t possibly do it all, like I am not enough. I feel like the needs of those around me are too great. I just can’t do it.
