She fell asleep on me the other day.
This is normal, our afternoon nap routine. I turn on a movie or a TV show that bores her to sleep and keeps me on the couch for a couple of hours to rest. I'm not so good at sitting down and resting.
But the waking - that was different.
She turned toward me with a soft, happy gasp as she opened her eyes. "Mommy?"
I smiled and told her "I'm here."
And she smiled back and cuddled into me with one of her sweetest hugs, perfectly content to be with me.
It doesn't happen often. I unwrap it again and again.
My friend Emily at Chatting at the Sky hosts a weekly "noticing" party - giving us a chance to unwrap and share the little gifts (and the big ones!) God gives to us in the midst of our dailiness.
It is good for me, this learning to notice Him.
Do you have a gift to unwrap today? Stop on by and link up with Emily, and share in the (mostly) paperless unwrapping!
