A GOOD CRY
Brian and I got to bed last night around 10:30, and we were both so tired. He quickly dozed off to sleep, and in spite of being so sleepy, I picked up a book I've been reading since before Anna was born. Needless to say, I haven't had a lot of time for books lately. Growing up, I didn't care much for reading, but it seems I'm growing to have a love for reading now. A few months ago, I started reading the Redemption Series by Karen Kingsbury, followed by the Firstborn Series and am currently reading the Sunrise Series. Last night I finished Summer and found myself having one of those good cries. The tears came forth from being so overwhelmed with gratefulness for our 4 beautiful, healthy children. After I finished reading, I got up from bed and went and laid hands on each one of our precious children, thanking God for them and praying for His covering and protection over their lives. I woke up this morning with my eyes all puffy, but I've found I need a "good cry" every now and again.
