Instead I’m resentful and mean.
Lack of sleep is absolutely awful, but the worst part is how I let it control me.
I’m not perfect, nor will I ever be, but I can definitely try harder.
I should try harder.
I should try harder to be calm, patient and even try harder to get to bed earlier.
So, I am thankful.
Thankful for my family for sticking by me.
For my kids who don’t always understand, but who always love me.
And I am the most thankful for my dear, dear husband.
He may not understand what it’s like to wake up every 2 hours, night after night, but he is always there for me. And always there for our family.
He tries his best to let me have time to sleep, even though the kids are constantly calling for me. He tries to take them out, even though it’s tough with so many small kids and we’ve been having really crummy weather. He really tries to keep everything together.
Because, when I am so overtired I cannot keep it together. I feel like everything is falling apart and I’m losing control.
But I have to remember to be thankful. Thankful I have someone by my side that has by back. He can pick up the pieces I drop and he can help me keep everything together. I really don’t have to do it all alone.
It’s just hard to come to that realization sometimes.
So, thank you to my DH, who through it all is patient and kind. You’re the one who encourages me to take chances and the one who supports me when I fail. You’re always there for me and I know that have to try harder to be there for you.
What/who are you thankful for today?
Until next time,
