1. Hugs, Cristi!! I have totally felt this way. I would bet that I think this “run away” thought about five times a week. But the good news is that it is just a fleeting thought. Because whenever it pops into my head, I let it sit for a moment, but then it goes away. You know why? Because all the reasons I love my life come rushing to the surface to pop the “run away” thought like the bubble that it is. We have so much to be thankful for. It’s important that we recognize these feelings, and realize that they’ll pass.

    Can’t wait to meet you in person and give you a real hug at the Overnight! It’s coming up so soon!

  2. Oh yeah…….I think that at least 2-3 times a week myself. Everybody wants to run away from something at some time. But, we power through…..keep truckin’, my friend.

  3. Show me a mom who hasn’t ever felt like running away and I’ll show you a toddler who never ever whines.

  4. I’ve been known to say, “I QUIT this thankless, exhausting job!” You hang in there, dear. You’re amazing.
