Wow, I have SO much to be grateful for today!
Baby did get a bit fussy before our preschool trip, but settled down once his car seat was buckled in and even fell asleep on the return trip. I put his car seat in his brothers’ bedroom with the sound machine running and he slept ALL afternoon! This means that I got a really great nap!
Then, he woke up just before my piano lesson was to start, but was in a great mood. I brought his car seat out by the piano and he happily remained in there until the very end of the lesson.
Once the “big” kids got home from school, I helped my daughter bake a cake–for fun. Some of us enjoyed a slice as a bedtime snack.
I even got the older three bathed and into clean beds–all without any major screaming fits from Baby. And did I mention that he peacefully drifted off to sleep in his swing during devotion tonight at supper time?
To quote the words from a favorite childhood song (done by the Maranatha kids, from a “Kids Praise” album with Psalty, the singing song book): “Whoa! I give the glory unto God!” 🙂
Some day I’ll look back at this day and just smile. Maybe some of you are already thinking, “She’s excited about only accomplishing THAT?” The answer is a resounding “YES!” Sure, in other phases of life, I’d be itching to get much more done. But, today I find myself incredibly grateful!
I even killed a spider without screaming or having a panic attack!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I’m just praying that everything isn’t going to fall apart tonight, like have someone wake up with the flu or Baby having a restless night. As of now, all four kids are tucked in and peaceful.
Lord, thank you for the gift of a quite-smooth day!
