Point Taken

OK Hashem. I remember having this conversation with You recently...I mean I know I'm getting older but my memory isn't going yet.

I remember saying basically I CANNOT take it anymore.

Too much. Too much stress. Too much worry. Not enough of what I need; money being tops in my mind, but other things as well.

I can't take it anymore! Let me off this ship! Let me sleep and do nothing for a month. I want quiet. I want rest. I want, most of all, to have a break from worry.

So what happens? YOU GIVE ME MORE!

What gives? WHY? You don't believe me? You really think I can take more on my plate? You want to prove me wrong....

Oh...

Point taken.

Did you read my tweet about my silly dog? I give him treats every day but he still cries and whines AS I'm giving it to him as if I won't. HASHEM may be saying to you, "I made you, Daughter. Do you not trustt ME to know how much I can ask of you?" A child never thinks s/he can learn or do until s/he has. Trust & walk forward. The G-D of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob is with you. -Arieliondotcom

Rachel Ann, I know you are stressed to the gills so I want to give you this little clip of inspiration. Rabbi Brody teaches that when we feel down we should only thank HaShem and not complain. Easier said than done, I know. I hope this helps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r0FEfS_mP8&feature=player_embedded
