There was once a point in my life when nap time was the time to get everything done. Dishes cleaned, dinner prepared, a little "me time" here and there. But, since Lily turned three two years ago, she quiet gave up the nap altogether. So, we have been doing school work off and on during Addy's nap time.
Sometimes I look at it a little begrudgingly, like my quiet time has been stolen from me. Whoa, hello selfish me! It is like when you are walking in a beautiful park and all you do is stare at your crummy shoes! Looking at my girls today, I was so pleased and cheerful. One sleeping babe, and one hard working school girl.
My attitude took me by surprise. Then my surprise took me by surprise. I feel so grateful for what God has gifted to the mister and me. We don't deserve this, but He gave them to us anyway. They take time, and energy, and pieces of me that I don't always want to give away. I am determined to keep my eyes up, taking in the view here in my home. What a lovely view it is.
