You Are Not Alone

Sometimes in the midst of everyday life, you can feel as if you're stuck in your own little world.  But you're not.  Believe me.  You Are Not Alone.

If you've ever taken something for granted, but didn't mean to....you're not alone.
If you've ever raised your voice and immediately regretted it...
If your child is happy after a 20 minute tantrum and you're still on edge...
If you can't seem to get everything done on your to-do list, ever....you're not alone.

If the only time your kitchen counters are clean is while you're asleep...
If you can't remember the last time you cleaned the toilet or vacuumed...
If there's more stubble on your legs than you'd like to admit...
If you just don't feel like cooking dinner some days...you're not alone.

If the kids just drive you crazy sometimes...
If you drive yourself nutty sometimes or most of the time...
If you can find a million other things to do than what you're suppose to be doing...
If you can't seem to clean, fold, and put away the laundry in one day...you're not alone.

If your house doesn't look like the ones in other blogs or in magazines...
If you wonder how other people do what they do...
If you have moments of self-pity...
If your children don't always behave as you think they should....you're not alone.

If while playing with the kids you feel guilty for not doing chores...
If while doing chores you feel guilty for not playing with the kids...
If you feel something is missing...
If you just can't seem to balance everything in your life...you're not alone.

If you're running on a lack of sleep...
If you've ever fed the kids pie or cookies for breakfast...
If you've ever used your own spit to clean your kid's face or flatten their hair...
If everything that you consider bad happens all in the same week....you're not alone.

Even if you're in the midst of the ho-hum, you're not alone.  Some one's been there, some one's done that.  You Are Not Alone.  I'm there in your corner.  And Some One is always with you. 

Here's hoping you find the JOY in midst of the trouble, in the midst of the average, in the midst of everyday life. 

When I'm feeling all alone
With so far to go
The signs are no where on this road
Guiding me home
When the night is closing in
Is falling on my skin
Oh God will You come close?

Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky
To show me You are with me
I I I can't deny
No I can't deny that You are right here with me
You've opened my eyes
So I can see You all around me
Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me
That You are with me
"Light Up The Sky" from the album "Light Up The Sky" by The Afters
