barbellenboone While I've recently come to the realization that my heart (sadly) most identifies with Chicken Little's friends in the gardening area... It is so rewarding to walk right outside my door to harvest ingredients in the middle of meal preparation... {Thank you Lord for your provision.. even when I don't always act so... } 2w

barbellenboone E.v.e.r.y R.o.o.m I've declared this 'a kick it into high gear' day over here... (no coffee on the couch. ) l want to serve & be able to enjoy my weekend with my family with a few more things checked off.. #graceingraceout #westartschoolmonday !!! 3w
  •   glrapp Yep. I've talked with several mommas lately, I think many of us are dearly trying NOT to have panic attacks. 3w
  •   rkboone Good goal, to serve and enjoy the weekend with your family. I think I will work toward that too.. although what I really would like to do is come over and enjoy coffee with you :-) ! @barbellenboone I'm one of those mom's, @glrapp, although I think mentally I'm past the point of not having a panic issue! 3w
  •   glrapp @rkboone sending you an IG hug. Are you saying if you walk away from the mess and chaos that maybe, just maybe...it will disappear? Hee! I'm terribly tempted. Or maybe instead of disappearing, maybe it will do itself. That'd even be better. Love you dear and your not alone. 3w

  •   sandrabeachler Go Barb go! 3w
  •   kobyjlong @glrapp I'm one of those who was having a panic attack earlier this week... I think I've worked through most of it.....God give me grace for yet another school year!! 3w
