Dear God, please don't let me get sick. Motherhood is hard enough without a runny nose and a sore throat. No one is going to come take care of me and let me whine while wiping up green goo that runs down my nose. No one snuggles sick mothers. I... Continue reading

Thank you, God. Thank you for sleep and impromptu coffee dates. Thank you for chocolate covered marshmallows and successful supper experiments. Thank you for opening up my tight places gently. Keep me growing, always. Continue reading

God, I know that a nagging wife is not a good wife. Neither is a whiner, a scorekeeper, or a passive-aggressive sulker. You have to help me avoid being these things, because I really want to be a good wife but I really hate feeling hard done by. I need... Continue reading

God, I need more energy. I'm wiped right out and I feel like I'll never get off the couch again. I know this means that I'm still trying to do too much, and I should work on slowing myself down, but I feel like my only sense of worth comes... Continue reading

O fantastic God, thank you for the gift of dreams. Thank you that I am able to conceive a reality beyond the one in which I live. God, help me to realize the two-edged nature of this gift, that too much dreaming can lead to despair when the road between... Continue reading

Lord, please help my baby to sleep tonight. She's in a place she's not used to and she never sleeps at other people's houses anymore. We've all been sick and had a stressful week and a good night's sleep would be wonderful. Please keep the nighttime fears away. Help her... Continue reading

God, I hate money. I hate it because I can't control it. I hate it because I need it. I hate it because we don't have enough of it to not worry about it. I want to be good at it. I want to emerge victorious from an epic battle... Continue reading

Oh God, why do these things happen? Why? How am I going to sleep in a stinking, wet apartment on our small sofa next to my sick, snoring, thrashing husband? What am I going to do with the baby while our bedroom stuff is in her play space? I can't... Continue reading

Motherhood is hard. Motherhood is full of emotion. In the darkest, most exhausting nights, I have realized that I've never acted out love the way I have for my baby. When I am away from her, my heart reaches back to her. Motherhood has brought me great joy, but it... Continue reading
