Hidden journalling is on a tag... simply because maybe tomorrow I'll decide to rip it up and write something less harsh.... but regardless, it's been very therapeutic!!
Just when I think I can't take it anymore... That's it! I'm DONE! Cameron is infuriating me with his constant whining and refusal to eat anything I prepare for him.. nothing seems to work!! And Ruby is so high maintenance, she only wants her mommy. I leave the room and she cries... so I carry her around all day and my arm is ready to fall off. And Simon can be so stubborn sometimes, it's driving me crazy! But then out of nowhere Cameron starts to sing "Jesus loves me" in his sweet little voice and I melt. they come to me later for their goodnight hug and a kiss and I choke out the words they need to hear... "I love you". Cameron says "why do you love me?" and I say "Because if Jesus can love me, I can love you." Tomorrow is my 38th birthday... we're going to have a better day.

Powerful journaling - gorgeous page! These are moments in time - accept them and do not be sorry for your feelings - don't tear them up latter! God doesn't allow us to have more of a load than we can carry, just remember to constantly go to Him with your questions and burdens - your help is coming from the Lord if you stay close in prayerful thougt.

Scrapbooking is therapeutic and definitely less expensive than a shrink. (Well... that last statement could be argued.) I think journaling can be very powerful and it's what makes the difference between a photo album and a scrapbook. This is the true story behind your life. Sometimes, I think we hesitate to scrap the "not so nice" moments, but they are part of life.
Your journaling is hidden. You can take it out to read it again or leave it hidden in the pocket. But I think you should keep it as is. Someday when your kids are older and have outgrown that phase, you can read the journaling over again and smile.
Thanks for sharing!!! :D
