Growing Pains

What Not to Wear and I had a blast at a waterpark yesterday...just the two of us. No timeline, no agenda. Just us, water, and fun. An especially memorable moment came when we were in the wave pool. WNTW is not a full on swimmer yet, so she's pretty clingy when the waves come, even though she is laughing hysterically and loveing every minute of it. A wave came at us and it knocked my sunglasses off. I had to spend a few minutes searching the wave pool floor. In the mean time, the waves kept coming....much like my emotions this last week.
I can't decide what to do with all of the different emotions I am feeling. I am trying to process them one by one, but it feels like they are coming in waves and are knocking me over! I can't get my bearing. I very much know that I don't stand on feelings, but on facts, and I have some sweet promises to hold onto. However, in the midst of some MAJOR decisions my Deadliest Catch and I have to make, those promises seem just out of my reach. Where does that leave me? I can tell you where it used to leave me - knee deep in ice cream and any other sweet I could get my hands on...but now I am making the choice not to eat my feelings, even though I really want to. So I'm just trying to go to the Lord with it all. I have a feeling I may end up in the fetal position at His feet. Thankfully, He knows what to do with me when I'm there.
