I am an older mom 61 yrs old and have 5 children, ages 44, 42, 18, 16, and 14. The youn.gest 3 have special needs. 18 yr old has Down Syndrome a mood disorder and a feeding tube. My 16 yr old has a terminal form of Muscular Dystrophy and requires a great deal of medications and physical help with everything, My 14 yr old has Down Syndrome and is Autistic. I do have home nursing help and a husband but he is a truck driver and is not always here. All of that to say that I need prayer. I am just starting out on this journey and am going to need alot of help from our Lord as I am a stress eater and my life has a great deal of stress. I need to get healthy, my knees are bad i have lower back issues and the usual fat related, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure etc...My little boys need me, if I die there is no one to take them full time. And I need my health to properly take care of them.. Please pray for strength and peace and the ability to mentally do this program for me and for my family. Thank you Joni
Praying for you. You truly have the giving, loving spirit of God within you.
You have heavy burdens to be sure. I can't imagine, but God has allowed you to serve him through your family. I pray that you will be able to get services that you need, and that you will be able to take a bit of time for yourself and to allow God to speak to you through His Word and in prayer. Perhaps there is someone who can sit with your children while you take a walk each day. I love to walk and pray out loud, and sometimes listen to praise music on my phone. I haven't been able to do that for a few weeks, as my husband is recovering from surgery. Hope to get back to that soon. God bless.
Praying for you, Sister. Reach out to me if you just need someone to listen. God sees you.
