It was a rough start to Mother's day with the girls up with the sunshine beginning their three year old disagreements. After some hugs and a bath, we were out the door for breakfast (yummy!) that mommy didn't have to cook.
Quickly we hopped in the car and headed to church where our pastor provided an awesome prayer over all the mothers. You know, I have to agree with him, the best thing you can do for a mother is to pray for her. What a gift!
I still need lots of prayers! Prayers of patience, strength, understanding. Did I mention patience?
And then the second best gift of all -- my husband took the girls after lunch and try for a nap. You see, I say try because over the course of the year, the naps on the weekend have dwindled or provided me with much frustration because they never nap, and instead, enjoy some loud jumpy play time in their bedroom.
This day, Daddy grabbed a pillow and blanket and took a nap with them on their bedroom floor. Everyone was quiet.
Oh, what I could accomplish in the next two hours! There were many items I'm my to-do list, but instead, I decided to take a nap too.
"There is a house
a napping house
It was the best two hour nap in a long time.
Thank you God for the gift of prayers and naps.
