What.A.Night...sigh, and not in a restful/relaxing kind of way. Nope, more like an oh-my-goodness-I-may-lose-my-mind kinda way.
My husband was away and I had both the little ones by myself...no big deal right? Well, foolishly that's what I thought too. Then one woke up...wide awake 2 a.m Then the other woke up...yep, you guessed it, wide awake 2:30 a.m.
I thought there was a good chance I was going to shrivel up in a big pile of tired on the floor, but amazingly that didn't happen. Eventually everyone went back to sleep...even me.
You can imagine the next morning. The first thing I saw when I opened my weary eyes was my invitation to a pity party...you better believe I R.S.V.P'd to that.
So I grumbled around the house for the next hour....honestly I was being a total grump.
My little ones were being as sweet as pie and so I decided we should all go outside. The conversation went a little something like this:
"Hey lets go outside." ('cause what else are we going to do?)
"Let's put your shorts on." ('cause it's 218 degrees outside, with 1000% humidity and the mosquitos are going to pick flesh from bone.)
"Come on sweetie, let's go." ('cause I'm already tired of standing up.)
......shameful, I know.
And then we went outside.
AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. No, not just pretty, not just nice....but absolutely beautiful!!
The sun was shining, a cool breeze was blowing, and the sky was a perfect shade of soft blue. Within 5 minutes everything was right with the world...amazing isn't it?
My tiredness never stood a chance.
That's what this place seems to do to me...set all things right :o)
My older little girl wanted me to make her a crown out of morning glories. So there we sat, out in the field, weaving a crown of morning glories on the most glorious of all mornings.
Sometimes life will surprise you.
