And So, To Bed

I am writing this Monday post on Tuesday morning. You'll see why...
Last night I slept like a baby. Heavenly.

Actually, I fell asleep at about 7:00 during our bedtime routine for Sloane. My sweet husband covered me with a throw and let me sleep. Once Sloane was asleep, he made up our bed with fresh sheets and got a washcloth piping hot. He woke me only enough to give me a hot rag for my face, and to guide me into bed. He even remembered to put an extra blanket on the bed because it is too cold without him. I woke early this morning. Wide awake and with a song in my heart. Refreshed and ready for another day.

Oh, I am grateful for sleep.

I am more grateful that I share my life with someone who knows just what I need. And gives it to me.

The gorgeous sleeping baby is Sakura*Aya's daughter. See many more amazing images here.

What a sweet little angel she is.
Print those pictures to have them at HAND when you need them and not on the computer somewhere.
