Save the Couch Campaign: A Mom’s Plight for Sanity

My 2 year old's handiwork.

Peeling this couch is how she copes with the stresses of life.

I can't invite my pastor and first lady over. This is embarrassing.

I am in a season of frustration. I have no idea why. I’m thinking the Lord is trying to teach me trust and patience, but I’m growing more frustrated every day. I know the one thing the Lord is telling me is that the battle I’m in is not mine to fight, it’s the Lord’s. However, it is very hard for me to stand still when bills are due, creditors and student loan people are calling, things are breaking and falling apart and I feel like I’m on the verge of a breakdown every day! The Lord gave me a vision and call of what He wanted me to do with my life over ten years ago, and none of it is panning out. It actually feels like everything in my life right now, the circumstances and trials, are working against that vision. It makes me feel like throwing in the towel on those “dreams.”

The straw that is breaking the camel’s back is my children are destroying everything in my house. My couch is the perfect example. I’ve only had it three years, and my daughter has completely destroyed it. I know couches are not a necessity, but luxuries. However, I thought that I could start a funny campaign to save my couch and my “mom sanity.” Here it is. Don’t take it too seriously because it’s a joke, so the hate emails are completely unnecessary. However, if you feel led to help me save my couch, by all means, your donation is appreciated! You have not because you ask not right?
