today i am exhausted. there just hasn't been much sleep around here. lucy hasn't been feeling well and has kept us up for 3 nights straight. we always have something going on, and it fells like there is never a break. never time for rest.

this morning i was feeling pretty discouraged. i have so much to do, so little time, and i feel like i might just fall over.

then i found these pictures...

(this is trey after one of our many adventures. visiting his cousins. he looked like we had killed him off with all of the fun. i got him a happy meal on the way home and set it right by him for when he woke up)

these pictures made me smile...

they reminded me of how lucky i am and how i need to enjoy this time...

i may be a very sleepy...but the things that have exhausted me are the things that are very most important. it's a good kind of exhaustion.
