Feeling Crappy

How’s THAT for an honest post title? Feeling crappy. Not just physically, but emotionally. Maybe even spiritually right now.

Not only do I not feel a whole lot better after 7 weeks and 33 pounds of fighting this stomach thing, but now my kids have just left for Youth Group. I know … shouldn’t I be feeling GOOD about that?

Well, yeah. Except for the fact that I was yelling at them on their way out and that I’ve been short with them the last couple of hours. Let alone that some of what irks me is that I had to FORCE them to go to Youth Group.

Your next thought? “Really, aren’t you the Pastor?” Uh …. yup!

I’ve actually tried my darndest NOT to force my boys to go to church. They’re under enough of a microscope being Pastor’s kids, even though I think our church is GREAT at letting my boys just be kids. I don’t want to add to the pressure by forcing them to go. But sometimes, ya just gotta!

I don’t necessarily feel crappy about making them go. I just feel crappy about being short with them. They don’t deserve my frustration.

‘Nuff said.

On the health front, another test tomorrow morning, then we meet with the GI doc next Wednesday for results of the liver blood work, yesterday’s test and tomorrow’s test. In the meantime, honestly? Just feeling crappy. Thanks for letting me!

    I think it’s okay to feel crappy sometimes. As long as it doesn’t last too long. ūüėČ As my devotional said to me yesterday: “Be willing to obey God even if you don’t feel up to it. He has great things in store for you!” (Joyce Meyer)
