Family Alive

Brian, Kristine, Analise, and Josiah Toone

I love…

13th October 2008

my sleeping babies.  Each night I peek in on both Analise and Josiah before I go to bed.  I check to see that they’re covered, which is silly, because both of them toss and turn so much the covers are probably off minutes after I leave.  Josiah is always on his belly, often with his knees tucked up under him and his butt in the air.  Too cute.  Analise usually looks like she’s been fighting something, arms and legs sprawled out, hanging over the edge of the bed.

But really, the reason I peek in is to see their sweet sleeping selves.  There is nothing sweeter to me.  My heart nearly bursts with gratitude for what God’s given me.  I find a quiet moment to whisper a prayer over them, and to thank God for blessing me with such a joyous responsibility.  And I remember how very very much I love them, in spite of all the messes and grumping of the day.
