Oh Jesus, I'm so tired!  My heart is a hot mess of emotion. I'm emotionally tired from worrying about the well being of some of my children and physically tired from running after others.  Sometimes I feel like I'm in the movie Groundhog day because it's the same thing everyday.

I'm tired of not having the same energy that I once had.   Tired of feeling like I don't meet everyone's needs.  I'm tired from the burden of responsibility that comes with having 6 children.

I need a nap or an early bedtime.  I need a night out with my husband.  I need a friend to listen. I need a Bible study.

I need a peace that passes all understanding.

I need to remember that the sun will come up tomorrow and that this too shall pass.

I need to remember that in all of these things, this is how I'm serving you Lord.  Please give me the strength I need.

Do you ever feel just plain tired?

I need you to know that I am listening, and sometimes I feel the same. Sick & tired of feeling sick & tired. Love you!

Oh Gina, I feel this way now. I pray for you and all mothers for our Lord to give us the strength that we need to face our everyday challenges.

I'm exhausted too. Sometimes it feels like all I do is just get through each day and if that's all I'm doing, I'm really missing out on life.
