Day 52: Good Morning

HH had a basketball game this early this morning, but I had already been awake for an hour by the time he got up. That's just how third trimester sleep goes though, I know.

Fortunately, I was able to fall back asleep after he left. And then my dear sweet children quietly went downstairs to play--of their own volition--when they woke up. And I got to stay in bed until 8 AM. I don't remember the last time that happened!

I'm sure it would have been good for me if I could have slept solid that whole time, but instead I was kind of in and out. The good thing is, while I was awake I was able to think up some solutions to some major concerns that had me feeling pretty stressed last night. Getting ready for this third baby is so much more complicated! But I feel very blessed to have had that time this morning to rest, sleep, and problem solve.

And when I finally sat up and looked at the clock, I could not believe my eyes! Truly a Joyful Moment. And it put me in such a good mood that I decided to make HH's favorite apple pancakes for when he got home. And that spread Joyful Moments all around because the kids are big fans of pancakes too.

Wishing you all Joyful morning Moments!

My joy today was landing in the Jeddah airport and having David & Belky waiting for us - with lots of hugs and kisses.
