I can't do this

I should be in bed, asleep. But im not. Im up and must be awake. Just like yesterday, and the night before, and the night before...

This entire week has been so difficult for me. Katy is teething and is up every hour. Six to ten times. Every hour. And just to spice things up a bit, my husband has been getting a fever every night. So, if its not katy with her teeth, its my husband with his fever. (He went to get some lab tests done, and will get the results tomorrow. We think he may have typhoid fever). I have not had more than two hours of consecutive sleep for a week, and sometimes I feel like I cant do this. But then, I can.

That's what so amazing about God. The way He put us, moms, together. There are some things that we feel we could never, ever, muster up the strength to do. Suddenly, we're at a bridge and we find ourselves crossing it. Miraculously endowed with enough strength to do so. So I don't worry about what will come. I know I can do all things through the strength that I get in the moment of need. I am so blessed to have a family to take care of. There are many who dont.

So, here I am. Awake at one-thirty in the morning. With a smile on my face.

Just happened to see this title and took a look. I've been in your shoes and understand the toll fatigue can take on you spiritually, physically, emotionally! Sounds like you have a good perspective (trusting God for strength) - just try to care for your own needs as you can. I used to think my job was nurturing everyone but myself, when in reality I couldn't keep caring for others if my own needs weren't met! God be with you!!
