Sometimes I look at the world around me and see the horrible things that are happening to other people, and I feel extremely guilty for EVER complaining about anything. My life is not that hard.
Having said that, I have to confess that sometimes my burdens get so heavy that my eyes start to water and my nose starts to run, and I use piles of tissues trying to keep from flooding the general area. Today my burdens are so heavy. Can't I find some way to put them down?
You know when you're exercising and your muscles start to burn, but you keep going because it's good for you? And you keep going until the burn is so bad that you can't do it anymore? That's when you stop and walk for a minute and just breathe. The burn goes away and you can start again. I feel like I need to stop and breathe, but when I try to, it just hurts more. I don't see a way that this burn will ever stop.
I have heartache today. It may last forever.
