A Blessed Day

LittleBrother slept all night until 6:30 this morning, nursed for about a half hour, and has just started to stir at 9:30. BigBrother slept all night until just after 7:30, a half hour later than his usual waking time. I started off my morning without temper tantrums or crying. I feel somewhat refreshed. FireDad made me coffee. The sun is shining a bit even though the storm clouds are looming and making a dramatic backdrop for my apple tree blossoms. We have dinner plans tonight as just adults and all feels right with the world.

Twenty-seven is starting out nicely, no?

I’ll let you know how it feels after a few days, but when it starts with a card from your Great-Grandma (82? 83?) that makes you feel so very blessed, well, it can’t be too bad, now can it?


Text: May God’s blessings be upon you always. I’m so grateful to God for you and [FireDad] and your beautiful boys. You are doing such a good job in raising them and taking them to church and anting to raise them to know the Lord. Blessings upon you all. Much love, Great-Grandma.

I think it’s going to be a blessed and glorious year.
