I am Invisible

So I'm not gonna sugar coat it.  I'm struggling right now.  Lack of sleep is the big issue.  Sleep deprivation . . . does things to you.  Ugly things.  Fuzzy things.  Not warm and fuzzy things either. 

It's the classic December pain of too much to do.  But it's more than that.  It's feeling a little bit alone, a little bit unappreciated, a little bit overworked and not paid.  A lot invisible. 

This video is well worth the watch if you've ever felt this way.  I've never watched it as a video, but received it over email a few years ago and I cried so hard, I immediately saved it to my computer so that I could have a good, cleansing cry whenever necessary. 

It's called The Invisible Woman by a woman named Nicole Johnson who has a website called Fresh Brewed Life.  Ever heard of it? 

So I needed the cry yesterday - and this made me feel better.  Her words, the concept of mothers being invisible women is so true.  As unheard as we all feel sometime, we must remember that we are building something great with our sacrifices.  Something we will never see completed.  And that's OK. 

Watch the video.  It's 5ish minutes long and well worth it.

Let me know what you think.  And telling me to stop the whining is fine.  I plan to - as soon as a get a little more sleep.  And thankfully, last night I got 3.5 extra hours.
