I wasn’t prepared to write this post today.  In fact, it’s been on my list of possible topics for several weeks now, and I still don’t know if I can do it justice, but I feel I have to try precisely because I don’t feel up to it.  You see, I’m overwhelmed.

God has blessed me with six beautiful, healthy, children (plus one little saint in heaven).  They are rambunctious and loud and lovable.  And much as I love doing so, in caring for their physical and emotional and spiritual needs, I sometimes don’t have time to care for my own.  Some days, as I crawl into bed well past midnight knowing that I’ll be awake again in only a couple of hours to feed the baby, it dawns on me that I haven’t prayed.  At all.  All.  Day.  Long.  I have no idea how it happened, but there it is.  And I wonder why I’m feeling overwhelmed.
