Last night was the first night since our sweet Jillian had that horrible dream and meltdown on Dec. 15 that she has been able to go to sleep without 60-90 minutes of thrashing, screaming, and fighting. It is also the first time that she has sleep through the night since Dec. 15. She slept from 10:30-7:00. This is AMAZING!!! It wasn't even too traumatic getting her down for her nap today either. I am praying that this continues for her.
But because God has a sense of humor..
while my sweet Jillian slept through the night..
This momma was up comforting and caring for a vomiting teenager.
Sweet Em was sick all night. She stayed home today and was finally able to eat a piece of dry toast and keep it down. I am choosing JOY today though. I am choosing to be grateful to have these children under my roof and I am giving thanks that I am able to care for them-even in the middle of the night.
Dear Lord, I do love being these girl's momma, but I wouldn't mind a bit more sleep either. See if you can get that worked out for me. Until then, I am grateful to know you and cling to the promises in scripture. I know that this life is a mere speck of dust and I want to live it well for your glory.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3
