Have you ever felt so tired you doze off at the computer? This morning I keep doing it!! Last night Jacob had a few bad dreams and ended up in our bed. This doesn't make for restful sleep for Colin and I but it makes Jacob feel secure.

Emma decided it would be fun to wake at 5.45am and then proceeded to wake her big brother! So today I feel exhausted and I am not long out of bed! I keep staring at the screen then nodding off! I closed my eyes to pray and nodded off! Not good really but once I get going I will be fine!

Who would be a mum? It is the most challenging 'job' I have ever done in my life! We receive no training, no salary, you don't clock off at the end of the day and you can't take a sick day off!

I know that I have a hard day ahead of me if I am already tired and unrefreshed from sleep (or lack of it!). However, I know that I have a wonderful Lord who hears me and knows my circumstances. The Lord hears the prayers of mothers all over the world. He wants to restore us and gives us the strength to face the day ahead. In the darkness of night, when you feel like the only person awake with a child in the world, God is close to you and hears you.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28


  1. Oh my friend, I wish I could tell you that you'd get more sleep as they become teenagers, but I would be lying to you!..With my two working and having such odd schedules...then when they are not working they want to spend time with friends...sleep is a very precious commodity!!! Like you, my eyes are burning as I type from lack of sleep, but if I were to lie back down, I'd feel like I was wasting precious time. Just remember, even as Moms, God will always provide wherever He guides!

  2. Collette,

    We just have to remember that we too, are God's children! He is always ready and waiting to take care of us, talk to us, or just listen and comfort.

  3. I fully remember how tiring motherhood is. Nanahood can be tiring too!

    But sweet child, you are doing the BEST thing you can by being home with your little ones. That is so awesome and I praise GOd that my girls are able to be home with their children.

    Hang in there friend!

  4. Sometimes being a mommy of little ones does seem so lonely and you just feel so tired. But it is truly such a blessing and as you said, the Lord is aware of how tired you are.

    Fortunately He gives us strength for each day!

  5. Oh, I know that exhaustion. I am praying for you to get full restoration of body, spirit and mind! You are so precious to me, my sweet friend!!


It is always lovely to hear from my readers and I enjoy all you have to share!
