The last few days have been very interesting around here. Our kindergartner started school and our 2 preschoolers. This has left me at home with our 2 1/2 yr old and our 11 month old (plus I am tending a 3 year old and today my grandson as well).
Anyhoo, I haven’t been sleeping well for the last few nights. Or maybe I should say my littles have been having a really hard time sleeping.
So, I laid down on the couch in my room with the baby playing and the 2 yr old watching a show. I promptly fell asleep. John, my husband, had picked up the preschoolers and came home with them. They rang the doorbell (because I put the chain on). I heard nothing. Then, they went through our gate and around the house to come in. I was sound asleep.
The reason I am telling you this is because I went downstairs ( I had only been asleep about 10 mins). The whole house was a mess. 🙂 There were graham crackers everywhere, the laundry was strewn all over the room, toys all over etc… ( I am sure you get the picture). I should have taken a picture. It was awful.
But, then I smiled and said “well, I am only human”. I can only go so many nights without sleep before I am exhausted. I hadn’t meant to sleep. The day before I was straightening a chair and I was kinda leaning over the ottoman. I fell asleep right on the ottoman. :/
So, we are only human. But, what a great thing to be. I have so many imperfections but this morning I looked in the mirror and was able to tell myself how much I love me. I am proud of who I am becoming. More importantly, I am thankful to realize what is truly important in this world. I am glad to be able to have one more day to change imperfections into perfections.
I am thankful to wake up breathing everyday, knowing I can share my day with those that matter most to me.
Finally, I am thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who made me experience what I need to learn and grow and return to Him. I have a long way to go but then again I am only human. Isn’t that great?!
