Prayers Needed

Okay, this is hard for me to admit, but here goes:

I need prayers. Desperately.

I am trying to adjust to being the mother of 3 children under 4 years old. My oldest is NOT taking this adjustment well. That is an understatement! Lily is doing great, it is just a struggle to find the time I need to give all 3 of them the attention they deserve and time for my husband as well. And the sleep deprivation is getting me pretty good. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, I am blessed beyond words and I know that. I am just admitting my need for prayer to handle the job of raising these beautiful babies & to be the wife that my amazing husband deserves. Anyway, just please remember me & my family in your prayers. I thank you so very much.

Love,
Julie

The adjustment to three is so hard - you & hubby are outnumbered now. (I'm really not looking forward to that sleep deprivation in a few weeks.)You are wise to turn to the One who can give you peace and rest. I am praying for you - you are a good Mommy!!!

I hadn't been by in a while and was so glad to read the next post where things settled down for you. I remember even at 2, the roller coaster that the entire family rides when a new member joins. It takes a while for everyone to adjust and everything to even out. And as the mom you have so much more added pressure of keeping everything running smoothly, everyone content and satisfied - all that on no sleep! Sometimes it feels like trying to make your car drive across town with no gas in it. I'll keep praying for you as I'm sure more adjustments are in your future. If it helps, remind yourself it is a season and seasons always have an end. I remember the tug of war my feelings had with wanting the season to end, but wanting to enjoy it at the same time. Sending up prayers for you (and your sweet family) today.
