This prayer is being shared on social media and it reminds me to remain calm in the craziness of my life. It is hard to rank the ten items because I have complained about every thing listed. When I look closely, it is the lack of sleep that makes me grumpy and thus I start complaining about everything else.
Nate wakes up with his dad at 5:30 AM. Every night I pray that he would sleep in a bit longer but it never happens. Nate seems to like the extra time with dad and enjoys seeing his big brothers off to school. Often I find myself counting down the minutes until nap time so I can squeeze in a nap myself.
Untimely, I am reminded of the baby I do have, the baby on the way, and the two boys that are growing into smart young men. The boys in the house are health and playful and I remind myself to forget about the to-do-list and have fun.
My house is full of love, though messy at times. I step back and examine all that I am grateful for and I know that there will be a time when I get more sleep and I will have all the time in the world to explore more roads on my bike.
