As a working mom I wake up, get the kids ready (with the help of my husband), get myself ready, get both my kids and myself mentally ready for the day on the way to work and also teach and be a caregiver at work. I am a mom at home and a mom at work and I love every minute of it, but does it have to make me so tired? I’m sick and tired of being tired all the time. I wake up tired (if that makes any sense) and by the time I go to bed I’m so beat down from my day that I just don’t want to do anything. Sometimes I wonder if I did get the sleep I needed would that even help? I’m pushing myself through my days just to wake up and do it all over again. I’m a zombie shuffling through my day working with the energy that I have and pushing myself to make it to the end of the day.
Lord I come to you this morning tired and run down. I try my best to be the best mom and wife to my family, but being tired takes some of my best away. I am praying that you grant me more energy to face the day. I am praying that I can successfully wake up in the mornings and go through the day without feeling so exhausted. I wake up sleepy and go to bed with one eye already closed. Please grant me the ability to find a way to combat this tired and exhausted stage of my life.
