Sometimes it seems that this house cannot function without me being directly involved every second of the day...which can be draining and frustrating...but this is life...and apparently I'm just supposed to suck it up and "get with the program"...

Any advice?
Steph, sounds to me like you need some TLC - maybe a little break or some down time. Do you have anyone that you are close to that would be a good listening ear or a shoulder to cry on? Certainly we are here for you but you may want to talk with someone on a regular basis to help get you through this rough patch. Have been where you are and was fortunate to have a really good counselor to help me recognize what was my fault and what I had no control over teaching me to let go.

Sometimes as wives, moms and daughters, we tend to over extend ourselves and need a different perspective. Please pray asking the Lord to help give you some direction to get back your peace, love and joy in Him.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
