Depression Supplement – Christian Audience – Nanotechnology “Daddy, why is mommy so sad?”
There I was, frozen just outside my daughter’s bedroom door.
I had just been about to join my husband Seth in tucking her in for the night…
But her question to her daddy about me hit me like a gut punch, stopping me cold.
I could hear the fear and worry in my daughter Mary’s voice, and it ripped my heart in two.
Then, her next question I overheard really knocked the breath from me
“If I pray really hard, do you think God will make her happy again?”
Tears filled my eyes… because I’ve been praying for the same thing night after night for the past several months.
Yet there are still those mornings when I wake up staring at the ceiling, sadness sitting like a giant rock inside my chest.
I don’t want to feel this way.
In fact, I shouldn’t feel this way! I have a wonderful husband, three beautiful children, and a lovely home…
But before where these things brought me such vivid joy, this sadness now feels like it’s painting my world a dull gray…
And now my blues are stealing my precious daughter’s happiness.
I know this has to stop. But I have no idea how to make that happen.
