Rest is needful

I've been in PAIN today. For whatever reason, my shoulders keep getting so tightened up that it hurts to even be awake. It hurts to move. It hurts to be still. It hurts to sit. It hurts to lie down. It hurts to stand. You get my point. IT HURTS!! Throw in a little one that has wanted nothing but to be held and close to me today, and you get me--a very tired, slighty grumpy me.

I am also very much missing Ryan. He's been gone for over a week now, staying with Grandma for a visit. It's been so long since she has been up to having him, but I'm more than ready for him to come home. As it is right now though, it will be another week and a couple days before I get to hug him again. I'm sad. I may not make it that long. I may just have to call to tell them to bring my baby home!!!

It's nearly eleven now. Brandon has finally cried himself to sleep. Poor baby has chosen to take the hard road these last few nights and cry it out, instead of peacefully being cuddled to sleep. Boys are that way. Are girls? Maybe one day I'll have an answer to that.

I think that my body is tired enough now to possibly fall asleep even with the pain. I still can't hold my head up straight without sharp jabs down to my fingertips, but I need to rest.

Until the next moments of quiet, I'll leave you with this quote from my A Mother Is Love calendar.

For God is sheer beauty, all generous in love, loyal always and ever.
Psalm 100:5

Sorry you're so miserable! I feel for you (sisters of compassion are like that, you know!). Hope to see you tomorrow. Thank you so much for your beautiful piano playing. You can do it like few others. I appreciate you!
