I'll Admit...

...there are some afternoon/evenings that I just have to sit and pray that bedtime will come quickly because I can't take "it" anymore.  

Tonight wasn't one of those nights.  :)  The kids, all four, snuggled up next to each other in the living room.  They piled onto the couch, sprawled out on pillows and were swallowed up by an oversized chair.  They had come together and chosen one movie (after perusing through about 100) and decided it should be family movie night.  I was so tired, that I gladly agreed to FMN!!  

I put the agreed upon movie in, and tiptoed off to my bedroom.  I FULLY anticipated having to yell out to them to behave, stop pushing, stop stealing the blanket, quit tooting...ya know...those issues we all face!  But instead, they stayed still...taking in the green glow of "Shrek" while simultaneously making me happy.  I kept checking on them thinking that each must have fallen asleep.  But no...

I love evenings like this.  God blessed me this evening.  Thank you for sweet moments Lord...when I can see the beauty in my large family.  Thank you Lord for the blessings that come from this large family.  I am truly grateful.

  1. I've said before that I don't know how you do's kinda nice that it's not always your favorite thing! "Shrek" woulda been my choice, too.
