Today I am thankful for rest.
Seems like 75% of the time now, we go (or at least I go) 90 to nothing. Our days start and end pretty blurry! We're up, coffee, breakfast, school, errands, play time, chores, chores, chores, emails, phone calls, more errands, dinner, bath, bedtime routines. I love it all (ok, maybe not the chores), but it sure doesn't leave me worn out and weary on occasion.
Once the kids are down, I usually have some sort of project to work on...cakes, cookies, decorating, home projects, still unpacking boxes, the list is endless. And finally, bed.
For a few hours at least until waking once or twice for sweet Maryclaire who is not yet sleeping through the night.
But on occasion (like 5 occasions so far!) I will get a glorious 6 hours when little Miss sleeps like an Angel. And I do mean glorious...I'm pretty sure I can hear the Hallelujah chorus when I wake up. And last night, dear readers, was one of those nights.
And for that, I am very thankful.
