Feeling Like an Island

Today, I have just really felt all alone.  My husband had a ton of errands today to run before he went to work, then my parents left within 5 minutes of my husband going to run his errands.  Even with the kids here, everything seemed so empty.  I tried to keep busy, but the feeling of being stranded in the middle of an ocean kept sweeping over me.  I tried getting online to chat with some of my fellow Etsians, but I felt like I was being left out of the conversation every time I commented.  I felt as if they were all rolling their eyes and sighing "Oh great, it's her."  I feel like I have been banished.

An ever widening sense of sadness and abandonment has loomed all day. Even now, writing this isn't helping as I thought it would.  I type on the edge of tears...maybe I'm just being hormonal.  That's just an excuse.

My phone never rings. I never receive anything in the mail that isn't a bill.  One might say, "Well, why don't you do those things for others and it will come back to you. You reap what you so, after all."  Guess what, I do those things already.  I call those I don't see in church on Sunday or encouragement, post encouragement on Facebook, send little happies over text message and through the mail.

We all need encouragement from time to time.  And I am in bad need of some right now.
