Night Life of a Single Mom

Standard

I am so tired
I feel it in my bones.
I’d love some energy for me
now that day is done,
time to write, to think,
to dream about what is to come.
But with kids in bed
I’m so out of my head tired
all I have the energy to do
is brush my teeth
and get to bed myself.
What a party animal I’ve become!
This is when the old thoughts return,
and I have to fight
to keep them from taking hold again.
I pray for rest, for blessed
deep sleep,
for tomorrow is coming soon
and I have promises to keep.

  1. Bless your heart! Mother’s never rest. And those of us who are Mother’s are Mother’s for life!
    You will feel sexy and alive again! Rest comes when we die!!😁

  2. ‘Reconstruct’… Nice beginning! I wish you all the best? I really am enjoying your blog, when I can get here. Bless your πŸ’“ and Always remember you can get through anything motherhood may bring to the table! πŸ™‚β˜€οΈ Love.

    • Thank you for this. I just need to keep remembering to trust…to cultivate faith, to realize that faith doesn’t come without necessary trials to strengthen it, to make it necessary…βœ¨πŸŒˆπŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ

      • …and dang those darn trials! There is No getting around them! Hi! So nice to have you drop a note! I was just thinking of you yesterday, and wondering where you had gone, but figuring that you are/ were busy living life!☺ Take good care, and be good to yourself! Don’t forget to laugh out loud!!😁

      • Thank you, such good advice. I will gladly take it and laugh as much as I can! πŸ˜„β€οΈπŸŒˆβœ¨πŸ™πŸ»

      • Oh how I understand your reply! I had my first baby at 21. My dad died at my age of 27…and I had my second baby right before my dad passed. Oh man, adulthood, it took time! But through it all, looking back, I was more of an adult than I assumed. I remember not even having a free moment to have a good cry! When you finally fix the trust insecurities, the kids are grown, and then your independence comes into play. And it’s a whole new ball game. Always trust you gut! Insecurities will subside! And you will begin to find your confidence! Like when we are with good friends where we can be ourselves and no insecurities are present! Step at a time my friend. Take care of you. And everything else will fall into place! Trust issues are not fair when they come by way of someone we loved screwing everything up out of selfish acts, etc. Boundaries can also help feel secure, empowered. Feeling in control helps soften hurt and slowly repairs trust.Trust is never the same once broken, but with the right love, the right people in your life, oh it feels so good again to be free of the gawd awful anchor! Just my thoughts. Love to you and yours Lorien! Happy Holidays! (Hug)
