I must confess that I’m suffering from a little bit of the ‘baby blues.’ Not that I even have a new born yet, or am feeling stuck in the house, or having a lack of sleep, but this first trimester of pregnancy #3 is hitting this momma hard! I have been more tired than I can remember and just generally a little blue lately. I tend to be encouraged and motivated by the list of things that I have accomplished in a day, and that list is much shorter than I would like it to be these days!
All that said, I wanted to encourage those of you who are in a stage of life where you might be more tired than the average day. Be it due to a long work week, pregnancy, having a newborn, chasing toddlers or staying up late to talk with teenagers, there are plenty of times when we can use a little extra care! I have been soooo thankful that my two overactive toddlers are both still taking naps in the afternoon! And this tired momma has been curling up on the couch the minute they are in bed :) It’s hard to pass up the ‘to do’ list, but important for me to know that there are times when I can serve my family best as wife and momma when I am well rested (and not bummed about the missed opportunity to nap!)
