Battered and broken

I'm feeling so overwhelmed and broken right now.  Please pray.  We have 4 family members sick with some sort of stomach virus.  I'm hoping and praying that the rest of us don't come down with it.  (The 3 youngest children and I are currently well.)  I'm thankful for friends  - one who brought some food for us and many others that are praying.  My precious best friend has been over here helping me some today - please pray that she stays well too!

I'm still trying to pump and nurse Eliana.  Today has been very difficult though.  I don't want this to be what ends our trying to nurse. 

I'm also trying to deal with other news which is breaking my heart.  It's not mine to share yet.  

ETA:  Wanted to share a sweet moment today. I was holding Eliana and asked her "Do you love Mommy?"  She responded with the biggest smile I've seen to date!  It was just the right answer when I wasn' expecting one at all.

I know God is with me, but I'm feeling incredibly beat up right now.  I've more than passed my limit.  I have been sobbing all day long and am just worn out - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.


  1. Oh my dear Leslie.

    I'm free tomorrow. Would it help if I came over for a bit?

  2. (((Leslie)))

    Praying you find peace and comfort tonight.

  3. How sweet for her to smile for you!

    Praying for your family...and protection for you and Eliana and anyone else who is still well.


  4. WOW, she has gotten so BIG. I know you are struggling with feedings but you can really see how she is growing!


    <br>She is very pretty too! She looks like you!


    <br>Leslie, we are all praying for you and your family.


    <br>You know that Footprints in the Sand poem? You're in the middle of it right now. Hang on...tightly.
