Overwhelmed by Others Love

My last post talked about me forgetting about me.  It's not that others have forgotten about me.  In fact, I have more people that care about me in my life right now that I don't know how to take it all in.

Sometimes I am so overwhelmed with the care and concern people have for me that it brings me to tears.  For years I helped my husband through sickness.  For years I have lived my life for my husband and children. 

  How can I be so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life?

Can my heart take more?  With it already so full how can I handle more?  

So now, my heart is overflowing and pouring out even more to those around me.

That is kind of how the Lord works.

He fills us with so much love that - 

We can't but help others.
We can't help but serve others.
We can't help but pray for others.

What About Me?

I've been so busy lately. Between my travel, writing, kids, being a wife, and sports agent -
 I seem to have forgotten about me!

It is easy to do. 

I forget me all the time.  

Sometimes that can be good - 

Focus on others
Bless others
Serve others

All really great things.

But What About Me?

Lately I forget -

To eat
To exercise
To take my vitamins
To get enough sleep
To read my bible
To pray more

While focusing on others is important we cannot forget about ourselves.  There is a balance in serving others.  People can demand our attention and time and other times we put expectations on ourselves that aren't realistic.  Right now I am afraid of letting my clients down, so I get up at 4 or 5 AM and start work and forget myself throughout the day.  It is time for me to slow down and remember me.  

I am worth remembering.
