My good friend of several years has two daughters (almost 6 and 3) and is pg with her 3rd due in june. she's always struggled with finding patience with her kids and part of the problem is that she and her dh work different shifts and both work full time. she works first shift, monday through friday, and he works second shift, monday through friday. basically they see each other either after 11pm, before 8am, and on the weekend. this also means that they constantly have to be the single parent at home - they never get a break. i offer to take the girls in the evening but she rarely ever takes me up on the offer b/c she feels bad getting help. her youngest and my oldest are like bff and i've known her oldest since birth and she's taken my kids several times so it's not an issue of trust. she just doesn't want to feel like a burden.

anyway she texted me tonight and pretty much said "i really think my kids would be better off without me" she doesn't mean suicide, but I don't know what she means exactly...like...leaving? she went through a really rough patch with her dh a few years ago and they nearly separated but since then they've been much better. they even came to church with us for awhile and i got her involved with some volunteer stuff too. they've since quit going to church, though i'm not sure why. she's always got an excuse. anyway...i guess my point is, please pray for her to find some peace and to allow people to help her. i know she was just venting but it still worries me, especially with her being nearly 20 weeks pregnant.

and pray she has a boy LOL! she finds out this week. they need some more blue in that house!

She's now stressed b/c her DH wants to move and it's such a terrible market right now...I have no idea why they need or want to move. They have put so much time and energy into their house in the last few years that they'd be taking such a loss if they sold. And coming from someone who lives in a small 2 br house with soon to be 3 kids, her house has room for her family.

I pray everything works out as it should for your friend. I will also pray that the Lord give her strength to get through all of her trials.
