Grouchy

I've got to admit that I'm grouchy right now. We're doing one of our shows on the conference tour in Nashville. It's difficult to do a show in your hometown. We've had friends come to the show and go to dinner and lunch with us. However, it's sorta like when you are in school and it's the day before some kind of break. You don't want to do any work.

Also, my sinuses have been acting up everyday for the last two weeks. They're not getting better. I don't know what to do. I've been taking medicine, trying to eat right, getting as much sleep as I can. It doesn't seem to be working. My right eye waters constantly and I feel like I'm on the brink of a sneeze every few seconds.

We are just plain tired. For the last nine days, we've been driving or onstage. I'm emotionally and spiritually and physically drained. I don't know if I can make for 15 more days just like the last nine.

I know that this is very negative. Just pray that we'll be able to make it through the next few weeks. We leave tomorrow morning to do a Freedom Experience in Springfield, IL. Then, we drive to Dallas to do another weekend on the tour. We then drive to Portland, OR, get on a plane, and fly to Rock Island, IL to do a show. Then, we fly back to Portland for another tour date. The next day, we drive to Vancouver, WA to perform. On the 31st, we start to drive back home to Nashville...Ugh!

The best advice I can give you is to just take it one day at a time. If you look at the whole big picture it can be very overwhelming. The Lord will sustain you. I bought an Amy Grant cd last night. Her music always makes me feel better when I am upset about something. Especially the song, "In A Little While." I know what you mean about allergies, I keep a box of kleenex with me at all times. I sneeze ALL night long and I look over at Chad and he is sleeping like a baby. Soetimes life is just not fair! Hang in there!

Hi Auny, I'm praying for you and Brock to find some time to rest on the road. It's amazing what the day looks like when you've had just even a mini-break. I think finding a way to relax is the key more than just rest. Love, Mom
