so exhausted

i cannot explain to you how exhausted i am. i can not imagine how mark has been handling his extreme fatigue over last 2 months. i have just had a rough couple weeks which is NOTHING in comparison!!
today was a good day for mark, he made it through the entire day at work and we had a "normal" night at home! it feels so good to see a glimmer of progress today! mark remains positive and upbeat....i on the other hand feel numb and beaten down. it feels so embarrassing to admit i am so exhausted when my husband is the one who has the disease.
tomorrow we were supposed to be flying out to riviera maya for 6 days...change in plans :)
we are headed to our "colorado mexico" :) my aunt and uncle have a BEAUTIFUL mountain home in grand lake. they were gracious enough to let mark and i escape there till saturday! i cannot tell you how excited we are!! i cannot wait to take some time with just mark to process what has happened this last week. i also can't wait to just SIT...TO SLEEP....TO RELAX...
my mom & dad are going to watch the girls...thank you :)
mark PROMISES to blog in the next couple days!
here is a picture from kya and i's tea party today :) it felt so good to take some time with just kya and have some normal mommy kya time! she makes me forget everything we have been going through and just enjoy the moment

I'm soo excited for you and Mark to go away! You really need the rest and I know you recharge by spending time with your hubby! Don't worry about the girls, Dad and I will be having a great time with them both!
Love you all!!!

you should be exhausted, brooke. You are probably carrying a ton of the burden. I'm sure there is so much on you as 'wife' and 'mom' and keeping it together in your 'new normal'. hang in there! praying for you. Have a great time away! Matt. 11:28-30 Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
