Sleep is a beautiful thing

For the last three weeks I have been planning an event (God gave me the idea, never mentioned the scope) that benefitted an organization very important to me- Young Lives.  Last night we held the event at our local mall, in conjunction with the National Mom’s Nite Out.  The culmination of hard work, excitement and a VERY successful event left me- in ONE word- exhausted!

The good kind of exhausted but exhausted none the less. 

And, the best thing about today, the finer thing, is that I slept until 11am.  My kids got themselves off to school and even snuck in and turned off my alarm so I didn’t wake up.  (one of the benefits of having adolescents and a hubby who gives them great ideas).

With chronic illness I can’t afford to stay exhausted. So today, I am so grateful for an understand family and a comfortable bed!

    You did an awesome job on the Mom's Nite Out! Hope you are able to get all the beauty rest you need… you deserve it! Way to go! God is amazing how He gives just enough to move forward in His plans… thank heavens He doesn't reveal all of it at once, I'd probably run the other direction!
    Did I mention you are beautiful even with lack of sleep!?! 🙂

    • thanks Bridget! I just woke up today (3pm) lol. I really had catching up to
      do. Thanks for all the encouragement and for helping out!

  2. What a sweet family you have. Shutting off the alarm was a perfect way to say they love you:)

  3. Almost forgot…Happy Mother's Day!

  4. I'm so glad your family gave you the much deserved rest you needed after coordinating such an awesome MNO! Hope you had an amazing Mother's Day!
