I woke up at 2:00 am. And then was up. I was hot. I was cold. I was crabby. Mike snored. The dog walked across the wood floor. I have a million things to do tomorrow. It was 4:00. I got so ticked off that I couldn't sleep. My mosqito bites itched. Katie was talking in her sleep. The sky was getting lighter. 5:30. Doze. Alarm. My sweet husband hugs onto me. I tell him of my night. He tells me to sleep and he will take the kids to school. Love that man. Try to get back to sleep. Remember getting up without any help for school when I was young and how I felt. Up I get. Hug on my kids, grab them some breakfast, do hair and help pick clothes. Kiss my husband and hold him for a bit and thank him for taking the kids to school for me. Close the door, walk into the quiet of my home. I am dead tired. But my kids know that I love them, my husband got some lovin' and I have a blessed life.
Sleep will come tonight. But I only have a little time to love on my family. I will take that time and make sure they know I am here, and I love them.
