Friends are those rare people who ask how we are, and then wait to hear the answer. – Ed Cunningham

I got a sweet e-mail from a great friend yesterday, and this quote was right at the top.  Then she asked me how I was, and here is my answer:

Me?  I’m ragged.
I’m actually really good, I just feel like I’ve been run through the ringer about 10 times without a break between.  Between hunting season, three schools (mine, Emma’s, and the girls’), building our house, and all the other various activities that have been going on, I just don’t feel like anything is getting done with any quality.  I hate to say this, but it’s a blessing Aaron’s at hunting camp this week and only Katelyn and I are home because I feel like I will actually be able to get caught up on some of the housework I’ve been slacking on.
I am treading water, keeping my head above water, but that’s about it.
I feel like I unloaded on her (sorry, Lindsay).  I feel guilty for dumping on her, but I actually felt better.  It is amazing to me how quickly my mood lifted after only 6 sentences.

It seems to be the season for everyone to be running crazy, and it just made my day that someone took the time to ask, even through her busy schedule

Thank you, Lindsay!  You are amazing, and I hope you know how much you are appreciated!

  1. and here I was feeling horrible that I hadn’t responded back to you yet when I took the time to ask…

    Amy … I treasure you and I hope you know that even when you’re feeling like you’re “unloading” … that I am listening and I do care … and I will pray.

    Love you friend and thankful that I emailed you when I did!
