Processing the Last Two Months

There is much to write. Too much, in fact. And I’m determined to do so. But there is much to process first. Too much, in fact.

I’m tired. My brain is tired. My body is tired. And my heart is tired. Exhausted, in fact. And it’s not over.

I still need to make a list of everything that’s happening/needs to be done in September. What happens if I don’t want to do any of this?

  1. Hi Krista-It’s Rebecca again-the crazy stalker lady! I would love to hear more about your trip to Guatemala. I followed you through it on Instagram but I haven’t heard the story of why you went, feel like sharing?

  2. I just read this and it brought tears to my eyes. That is way too much to deal with all at the same time. Did you say you started therapy? I think that is the smartest thing you could possibly do while dealing with all these major life changes. I love you and I’m praying for you.
