MIA...

I need to take some time away. This week is going to be hectic and to top it off I just really feel like a lousy friend. I feel like a life sucker. I feel that I am sucking away all the happiness from everyone around me. I am taking more than I am giving in friendship now. I am taking more than I have to even give out. After the kids I have nothing else to give.

Although I can totally understand, you know we don't expect anything from you right now. We are here for you, whatever you need, whenever you need it.

(((Michelle))) - You are so hard on yourself. Life in general is busy with kids and you have more than just normal life on your plate. Take as much time as you need and know that there are lots of us who love and care about you and are here when ever you need us.

Sending you TONS of +++++ energy!

Huge hugs sweetie. You're not a life sucker in any way! Each and every one of us needs a way to get it out, esp when we have *ahem* others in our lives who don't get it. I love you and your kids and know that I'm always a text away! Seriously, I even take it into the bathroom w/me :D

Take what you need, give when you can.

That's what friends are for, to be here for you in the good times and the tough times. Sometimes you are the "giver" in the relationship (and you ALWAYS give, my friend). But there are other times when you need to let us give to you, in any way we can. It's time to take and you can have anything I can give!!

((HUGS))

Oh my goodness, Michelle. You're being so hard on yourself. You aren't a life sucker and you're certainly not taking away anyone's happiness. That's the thing about friends - the balance in the friendship is constantly changing as one side needs more support and the other has more to offer. The people who care about you want to be there for you and you KNOW that when the balance of things change, you'll be there for them. That's just the way friends work.
