They wouldn't be cliches if they weren't true so often.
My mom e-mailed me a quote from a Joyce Meyer book she is reading this morning. "
It didn't take any explanation as to why she sent this to me.
We're both worriers. We've had to address those issues over the years and have worked together to try to overcome our faults, but we both still struggle with it.
The parts of life I worry about have changed over the years, however, I still worry. I try to trust God, but often, when I can't see the answers, I find it difficult. That's not really trust at all.
Last night, I got an e-mail from my boss detailing upcoming projects that go on top of my normal work. I was OK with it, because I have gotten used to the number of extra projects to take on. At the end of the e-mail she said, "I hope I haven't overwhelmed you, but I see how it could."
After a little bit, I started worrying about not feeling overwhelmed. Should I be overwhelmed? Am I not doing a good enough job that this isn't overwhelming?
My mom said the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
It's not great that we both worry so much, but I guess at least we have someone to encourage us in the struggle - each other!
