Sleepless night #2

So last night was awful for several reasons.

1. lily woke at 11:30 and then again at 2:30 and stayed awake until 5:30 when I finally fed her. Then didn't fall back asleep until 6:15. That equals about 2 hrs for me. Feeling a little off kilter this morning.

2. I had dinner club, which is always, but when I spend time with alot of people I get wired and have a difficult time coming down.

3. a parenting issue with Eloise that had my mind racing ALL night long.

4. I am the world's worst sleeper. it takes me forever to go to sleep w/o all these other things going on.

So what is this teaching me? Well, this morning, one thing in particular strikes me. As I am trying to soothe this child into a place of rest, I feel the Lord trying to do the same thing for me. To settle me and allow me to rest. It is interesting to me how much more I learn about my relationship with God through my children and especially their sleep.

It gets me thinking about Yoga again and possibly teaching a class. I haven't done yoga for about 8 months, but I love it. It was the one thing in my week that allowed me to take a deep breath and spend some rest time with the Lord. So I think I may look for a studio around here and see how it inspires me to get back into it and possibly teach it to other women to rest too.

I really need a facial at Dosha.......laying on a table with soft soothing music and sitting in their steam room....ahhh bliss. Maybe someday soon.
