Small overwhelms are felt daily such as right now when I know I should be vacuuming, cleaning the toilet or some such activity instead of sitting here writing on my blog. But I can usually ignore the small ones.
Then there are the mid-range overwhelms, usually at work when I have three or four people wanting something from me while I am in the middle of something else. Little harder to ignore.
The really big overwhelms are when something happens and I cannot control it. When the kids left for another state; when I have to return them at the of their visits. These are times when I can't ignore and sometimes feel like I don't want to go on. But I do and thankfully.
