Last night I did not sleep well. Having had a rough night I had a hard time falling asleep. I woke up tired and still feeling blue. All I wanted to do was be alone but with a husband and three kids to take care of that is not usually an option.
After Steve and Zack headed out for work and school I surrendered myself to the call of the couch and blanket, and decided there was no need for me to shower, change out of my pajamas, or do anything to be honest. Then my little sunshine Elliott came to me asking for a new diaper. As she layed down she began to sing You Are My Sunshine. This is the song I always sang to the kids when they were upset. Coincidence maybe but I think God was trying to send me a message and knew Ellie was the best messanger there was for it.
You see Ellie is one of the happiest and funniest kids I have ever met. As soon as she realized she could do things to make others smile and laugh she has been a clown. I am sure this will cause many extra conferences with her teachers in the future, but for now it is a pure joy! It was just a short interaction over a menial task but it was the boost I needed to turn my day around. I am still in my pjs and still have not showered, but I might which is a big step from where I was a couple of hours ago.
