10. Felt neglected when call got cut off and thought that represented their lack of concern

11. Looked up the number for the Samaritans

15 Continued work as normal, my ‘stuff’ tightly shut in a box

16. Took up the offer of a place to run away to

Hoe do you cope with the lows? How can you be a blessing to people during their lows…when they don’t feel able to ask for help?


Too much

The words for today are too much.

Too much work

Too many referrals

Too many needy people

Too many people telling me different things to do.

Too much stuff to sort and declutter

Too much stuff to pack

Too much stuff to do

Too much for the time

Too many meetings

Too many people talking over me

Too much tummy ache

Too many tears

Too many emotions

I am too much

Too much of a burden

too much effort

too much broken

Too many issues

just too much for other people’s busy lives

I am too much.

But my grace is sufficient for you and my strength is made perfect in weakness…
