Just One Day…

Three months into Motherhood and my body was adjusting to the lack of sleep and the new pace at which my life was moving.

It was indeed a struggle. I had to gather myself during a few of those midnight feedings. I was happy to have my beautiful baby on a schedule. I accepted the schedule no matter how early it was!

Having returned back to work I had no leave saved and didn’t want to take time off. I was tired. I needed a day. Just one day to rest. Fully aware that I was just getting started on this journey of motherhood, I had convinced myself that if I could just get one day of rest I could handle the next 18+ years with no problem!

So…that night they were calling for a snow storm–in March– so I said oh thank you Jesus. I need just one day off! I called my prayer partner(I call her my faith friend) and asked her to join in prayer with me that this snow would be real! I did not want a delay I wanted the entire day off. I believe in the power of agreement even for the snow. I had reading that I needed to catch up on because lately my reading pleasures have included Dr. Suess, Shel Silverstein, Bernstien Bears, and the list goes on…and on…(to see more books I read to my child click here)

Lo and behold…my job closed, even the government had a delay and I got my one day off! Mind you, I spent it in bed snuggled up with my three month old taking the time to read when she drifted off to sleep. I realized even though I was crazy tired and called my prayer partner to help me pray for this day, there was no place I would rather be…
