Grandparenting with Grace: Caughht in the Middle

So, Yeah, that's definitely it; life is Hard. I won't ever sugar coat it again. Life is hard. My father is dying. (I can sob all I want, no one is there to hold me.) And my darling grand-daughter can feel the stress. Add that to Sensory issues and what do you get? Happiness? Hahahahahaha. So i will suck it up. And be a good soldier.

Grandparenting with Grace: Five-minute-friday writing prompt- Notice

So it's been a  long time since I visited the Five-minute-Friday bunch. And it seems no one has noticed. That's tonight's prompt-"notice" http://katemotaung.com/2014/11/20/five-minute-friday-notice/

I've been walking around for a while now wondering what it takes to get noticed. Does one have to send out a "Notice" stating: "Hey life has gotten really hard here-Help!!" Or, should a public notice be published in the community paper? I just don't know how to get noticed.

Here is what I've tried in an attempt to get noticed, and in this order.
1). Prayer
2). Verbally asking for prayer
3). Verbally asking for help.
4). Whining
5). Crying
6). Stamping my feet at God.
7). Giving up

Yeah, I may be a bit overwhelmed with a child with  sensory issues, my Dad has been ill since June, fell late August and fractured his spine, and is now in Hospice dying. I'm tried of Facebook friends; not to burst your bubble or anything-but THEY ARE NOT REAL. I have noticed, I'm tired. I've noticed I feel alone. I've noticed--no one has noticed.
