day 341: more than i've got

Today between the wedding clothes shopping and a couple of other little things that came up, I felt insecure and unworthy.  Too many blessings.  Too many signs of trust.  It was overwhelming, and once I got home after a great, but long, day, it kind of hit me a little.

Often lately I feel like I am in a bit of a fog.  This kind of fog is one where I am progressing and learning and growing, not one where I feel stilted and frozen.  I finish one big thing, and right when I am ready to breathe a little easier new things come along to keep me thankful, and humble and counting.  Blessings.

I can relate, in many ways. There are times where it feels like the trust that people have placed in me is too much, that I can't possibly be what they need me to be.

And yes, fighting through the fog. I think that fog is called motherhood.

Keep counting -- the fog will clear.

I'm waiting for a fog where life is happy and calm and relaxing. Do those ever come?

I relate to your post, completely. Counting blessings is a great place to be, realizing the learning, stretching, at each turn.

PS: I love shopping, wish I could help you with some of that! ;)

You are doing wonderful. Fogged and stretching....ya, it's wonderful.

Gratitude is a great place to sit. The view from there is always spectacular.

But never think for one second that you aren't worthy of all those blessings. Humility and insecurity may be cousins, but they are not interchangeable.

I love you.

Thanks, Lu. And it is kind of a comfy, warm fog. I am not too bad off. Just feeling very gooey, like I am being molded.

Ain't it the truth! In all respects, the blessings and the over whelming list of things to do!

Love Luann's comment.

That sounds like the best kind of fog to be in!
I love your ability to look at everything in a positive light.

It's the kind of fog needed for real growth. That's my learned opinion!

Oh the fog and the molding--those can be the be best combinations and some of the best days of life.
