Another day, Another self made drama....

You may be starting to figure out that my pregnancy hormones are in overdrive. My house is a disaster area (I know, what is new), my car is filthy (I will let Maria tell you about that one :), and my laundry is piled high. After church today we decided to take a little drive around the surrounding area to look for property for our soon to be expanding clan. The prospect of change seems refreshing even welcomed, but after today I am not so sure. Decisions are not something that I enjoy making these days, and especially if we are talking big ones!! What can be bigger than where you live!! I am optimistic that everything will work itself out in the wash so to speak.
I am happy to report that I survived Friday nights slumber party, and a Saturday night Football Game with my husband. It seems like a lot of people I know are facing major dilemmas. I am reminding myself to stop and smell the roses more.
Friday afternoon Anna wanted me to rock her to sleep at nap time. I was reminded of how the simplest act can turn into the biggest blessing. There is nothing more precious than holding your sleeping child in your arms. She was covered with Doritos dust from her afternoon snack, and everything about her looked perfect. These are the moments that I never want to forget as long as I lived. So.....rock your children to sleep because one day they will be too big. If they are already too big then go into their rooms and lay down next to them while they are sleeping and remember what that blessing feels like!
