QuestionsFor the last couple of weeks I’ve had an overwhelming sense of anxiety lurking just below the surface of my skin.

It is like a burst of adrenaline just sitting there waiting for something to attack so that I can sprint.

I have no idea why this is. Nothing has happened. Everything in my life is the same as it has always been. I just feel like something is going to happen. I don’t know what and I don’t know when, just something… soon.

Lately my daydreams for my future have changed. I don’t know if it is just a normal “what if” this happened in my life type of daydream, or if it is a true wish that something would change.

Do I want to take the fork in the path that is just up ahead out of sight, or do I want to continue down the road that I’m on? Which is the right way to go?

And if this is not just a daydream. If this is a real thing that could be good for me and for David and for my children… can I do it? Can I have the courage to step on faith again? And what if I do, what if I take that step, and I fail? What then?

I am currently full of life questions and have no answers. An open-ended life full of possibility and change is not a comfort for a planner.

I’m linking this post up with Just Write.


  1. That feeling of SOMETHING impending is so eerie! I hope it is something good, positive and beneficial for you!

  2. Hugs, Mama! I know you’ll figure out in time what is best for you and your family. You’re probably finding some answers just by blogging about your feelings.

  8. You are one of the strongest women I’ve even known. Whatever lies ahead, I’m sure you will handle it. It might be great and I will be among the first to line up and high-five you. It may be rough but I’ve never seen you crumble in the face of adversity and I’m sure you wouldn’t this time either.

    You’re a wonderful example for your children about how to handle whatever life throws at you with a deep breath and a smile. :)
