Can you catch me?

Oh Ladies, I need your help... I know so many of you can relate. I do so much all the time and I am so tired. So, so tired. I just want to feel like if I fell down someone would catch me. I surrender. Being so strong all of the time is utterly exhausting and I just want to feel as light as a feather floating in the air. You know that game "light as a feather stiff as a board" that used to be a slumber party favorite? Well, I want to feel so light that pointer fingers could actually lift me up and the air would hold me there.

i used to believe in fairies hiding under mushrooms and sprinkling star dust to make dreams come true. Where did all that go? Where did the time go to actually think of that and a free moment go to even feel like that was a possibility? I want to bounce on clouds and ski on a perfect powder day. I just want to float and know that everything is ok. I want to feel alive! I want to be able to trust. I want to be able to sleep. I want to hold my babies like they were newborns again when time just stopped or stood still while I looked at their tiny toes, cheeks, ears, fingers... 

Feel free to just jump if you need to feel the same as me right now. I will catch you.

Oh, Mama!  Just let it all out.  We'll catch you!!  I understand some stress-free time to just enjoy life instead of the constant run around would be nice!!  Hugs!

I need someone to catch me too. Life is a little overwhelming right now and I feel like I'm failing before I've really even got started. The more I try to prepare the more unprepared I feel. Sigh.

We will always be here to catch you. Hugs. Everything can get so overwhelming sometimes. I know that my life is getting busy again and I will soon be saying the same thing.

I wouldn't mind feeling like that for awhile!  It would be nice, wouldn't it?  You catch me and then I'll catch you!  Hugs....

Beautifully said. I love how we all take turns catching each other in this group. I'll definitely catch you, Hadley. Soon it'll be my turn to fall.
