Some days are better than others, and this one has been a little crazy. We’ve had good moments – blowing bubbles, taking a walk around the lake, and reading stories – but there has been a lot of screaming, and a lot of crying. Some days are like that, I guess. More than once today I’ve wanted to just lock myself in my room and lay on my bed where I can’t hear all the crying. Or maybe just join in and cry along with them. But now all three of my girls are asleep, which is a rare occurrence. I am thankfully enjoying the silence, and saying a quiet prayer of gratitude for a tender mercy. Hopefully when they wake up we will all be refreshed, happier, and ready to enjoy the rest of our day together.
But for now, is there anything better than a sleeping child?
