In the silence of the night...

I am able to reflect on my blessings. It is after 1 a.m. and I am just finishing working for the evening. This is one of my favorite times. I am finally able to put my computer away and take a minute to remember the highlights of the day. Like today, eating ice cream with the girls and laughing as their faces are covered in stickiness or getting the proud report from Hunter that his hard work has paid off and that he "rocked" his spelling test or having Kadan ask me to bundle him up like a little baby so I can carry him up the stairs to bed. These are the times that bring me great joy. Yet, my most favorite time is when I check on my sleeping angels and give them one last kiss before the sunlight sneaks through the curtains, just as my mother did when I was a child. In this peaceful silence I am reassured that they are priceless gifts that came from our loving Father in Heaven.
