In the interest of being authentic, I am simply exhausted today. It’s been a long week, and there’s no doubt that the waning countdown is contributing. Henry is an absolute bundle of energy–he must think I’ve totally lost my edge since I can’t possibly keep up. I love our little chatter box…I’m just not feeling at all chatty lately. My mind is certainly taking a break whenever it can.
I don’t remember ever being this tired when I was pregnant with H, and I worked far more back then. The toddler factor has it’s influence now–I suppose I’m more aware of it than I’d hoped. We’re so close! I just want to somehow be storing up energy to get through labor and delivery well.
If you’re the praying type, I’d covet your prayers for good sleep and energy to fill the gaps where I’m lacking. I know that God sees my need and can meet me here…and in labor when the time comes! I’d be so happy to have better reserves for Henry and everyone else around me, too.
I’m going to keep this short tonight, since I’m fading fast. Regardless of my exhaustion at the end of this day, I still meant every word I wrote yesterday! It’s a different kind of joy to press into God for strength, and I’m going to go to bed tonight focused on that very thing.
yawning through these last days, but so grateful for the reason!
