I wanted to write a quick little note to thank those who prayed for me yesterday/last night. I know lots of people were around here like my parents, siblings, husband, some friends and more.

Last night we went out to dinner with only little Shiloh. It was great. On the way home I was feeling really sleepy.. I'm not sure if it was all that Italian food or a long ride, or just God! I said to Jake that I felt like I actually was tired enough to fall asleep. After we were home I laid down around 10:30 and promptly fell right to sleep! Then my dearest darling husband (who said he tiptoed in and gently climbed into bed in an effort to not wake me) let me sleep to 8:30!! :-O

I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to be well rested after not sleeping for so long. I also can't believe the same night I asked for prayer that it worked (silly me) right away! God is so good!

After some time of getting out of routine we accomplished 5 fingers today, and all the kids did their morning chores. It's funny how grouchy they are about getting back into the routine and then Giovanna independently got out a dust cloth and chose to dust the piano this morning on top of her regular chores!

With feeling well rested I have a mountain of things I need to do today, but part of me just wants to enjoy the time with the kids and do fun things and just enjoy feeling GREAT. But I do need to finish up a little present for a dear friend's baby shower tomorrow that I'm really hoping to complete in time!

So off I go, just a note of thanks to those who prayed for me!

Wow! That's great. I know how wonderful it feels to be rested after desperately needing it!

Oh my goodness, that is heavenly. I am SO glad for you. Good job, Jake! ;)

Really, though. It made me happy to read your post. I will continue to pray!!!

It was nice to meet you yesterday and finally put a face to your name. I hope you don't mind I may need to tap into your cloth diapering expertise. I typically change Truman at least once at night (usually at the 2 am feeding) If i use cloth diapers, even with two inserts his little onzie still seems to get a little wet. What do you do for night time? Currently I am using the bumgenus diapers from cottonbabies; maybe a different brand would work better for night time?
Its not really a pressing questions so don't worry about a quick reply. Have a great weekend!
