Little blessings

Miss A had a cold, and is now teething.  That means little/no sleep for mama.  The other day daddy had to leave VERY early for work.  I was sleeping on the couch in the living room so that I could be close to Miss A; she was sleeping in the baby swing.  I started hearing the pitter patter of little feet, fully expecting to be greeted by some sweet faces soon.  Instead I heard some whispering.  Then I heard Miss A give out a large cry followed by some quick hushing.  Then silence.  A couple of minutes later I heard the sweet sound of all of my children singing "Amazing Grace" trickling down the hallway from the girls' room.

They had sweetly conspired to try to let me get a bit more sleep.  Our baked oatmeal was even started in the oven!  My kids had gathered together to do the family Bible reading together.  What a sweet blessing!  After taking a couple of quick pictures I joined them.  Each of these sweet kids are truly a gift from God (yes, even the one that was keeping me from sleeping)!
