I am unbelievably tired.

Early mornings with this child...

...and late nights with this one...

...and making sure this family member is exercised...

Have left me so tired by day's end that I can barely move.

I am feeling very frustrated with my post-surgery, post-chemo body these days. My body doesn't look or feel the way it once did. Recovery is slow and there are some things that have been irrevocably changed. I have moments every day that I want to cry from frustration and my feelings of loss.

But my dependents pictured above also take me out of myself, provide love and distraction and remind me of the things I am still able to do.

They're good for me.

I just wish I weren't so damn tired.
