A Prayer for the Joyless Mom

4 min / Published

In hard weeks like this one has been for me, I am reminded how far I've come from the burned-out, exhausted mom I was 5 years ago. I also am reminded how easy it is to slip back into that joyless space. How easy it is to pursue the to-do list instead of rest in the gift of Sabbath. Today's prayer is for the joyless mom who loves her people, but struggles to love her everyday life. The mom who is struggling to find the joy because she is just so tired.
