Tired


Today, I got a call from a homeless woman I've been helping for a while. Her boyfriend has been pounding on her, and I gave her a ride to a friends place.
This just kills me to see people in such a state as hers, but I'm maxed out on what I can do.
I'm physically and financially at my limit, and I can see no end in sight.
I helped her get into treatment and counseling, but as soon as they let her out, she was back with her boyfriend, getting stoned and thumped on, repeating the cycle.
To make matters worse, she came to my office once for my help, and I almost got fired.
My boss claims to want to help people, but I guess she's not what he considers "people".
I have so much happening in my life now, with closing on my new house, working on the old one, Kittys health issues, and EVERY BODY calling me for help. And a full time job to boot!
I would normally think I need a vacation, but if I take time off, the pile of crap needing my attention will just get bigger.
I remember something in the Bible about "the sweat of your brow" and I can sure relate.
This has to end soon.
I prefer to end my posts on a happy note, but I'm just too tired.
