throwing it out there
Just a bit of craziness going on on this end….. Now I don’t know if anyone really reads this blog…but I thought I would go ahead and bite the bullet here and be really transparent. For those of you who do not know my mother is bi-polar. This has been something I have dealt with my entire life. My mother can be quite amazing in some respects but mental illness is a nasty thing to deal with. I have been very thankful that the last few years she has stayed on her meds and has been without an episode. However, last Monday she completely de-stabalized. She was admitted to the hospital. And due to her being uncooperative and bilegerent she was admitted to a state facility.
So last week was a bit of a blur for me…with her condition comes an amazing range of emotions for me. However all I can do is keep taking one day at a time. While I considered heading to Alaska and letting Jessica and Jules cover things this weekend…I decided instead to go ahead and come to Memphis. So I had a 10 hour drive from Atlanta to Memphis to think, worship, pray and process (and realize that I am a southern girl) Now I am in Memphis w/ the girls…..we headed to Beale street tonight for some blues and tomorrow our show starts.
Any prayers are obviously appreciated.
