a rare treat

This morning I am up and ready to go and actually have a few minutes to spare with nothing pressing to do… sure there are dishes in the sink and laundry in the basket waiting to be put away and lots of clutter everywhere, but those can wait.

Eila, my fabulous 1 year-old daughter, decided to wake up at 7:15am this morning instead of her usually 8:30am, but at 8:30am went back down for a nap. This provided me with the perfect opportunity to shower and eat and even curl my hair in peace. I even took a few minutes to thank God for the wonderful rain outside!

It is a great day today. Last night, Brian (my main man) and I went on a much needed date – just the two of us. We were able to see a movie, walk and talk, have dinner and enjoy each other’s company without too much worry for Eila’s safety. So, I am feeling particularly refreshed after a fabulous date with the best man in the world and a really good and mostly uninterrupted sleep.

It is amazing to think about how my life has changed in the past year – I never imagined how much I would value a few minutes to myself and not mind a dirty house or how my heart would melt each time a tear falls from my little girl’s cheek. It is remarkable that this love I have for her, which is greater than I ever realized it would be, is only a fraction of the intensity of love that God has for me as His daughter… Wow!

Well, Eila is up and singing, so I will go.
