It's late. Another sleepless night. Someone needs me. They need my hugs and my cuddles. They need me to care for them. I'm tired, not just tired, but exhausted. I wonder when with this cycle will end. When will I sleep again? My days go by in a fussy fog. I'm tired, I didn't get much rest. Coffee has become one of my best friends. Sometimes I get frustrated for the lack of sleep and the daily responsibilities I have, but... But then I remember there is someone who loves me. He didn't just endure lack of sleep. He endured rejection, beatings and death. All of this the pain of my sin. Somehow I'm given new resolve to stay strong, to continue to love, to be patient (or at least try to). I know in an instant that if my reasons for lack of sleep were gone I would cry "I want them back! I want them all! I will do it again!" So in my weakest, sleepless moments I draw strength from my Saviour's love and the love he has given me for my little ones. The love that lets me know I would do it all again.
