Sweet Slumber

Today I got the ultimate gift -- watching my child sleep. I heard him making noises in his room after about his typical three-hour nap, so went in to investigate. He was awake, but looked pretty sleepy still, so I lay down beside him and soon he was asleep again.

Oh, the joy of watching your beautiful child sleep. I watched him breathing, watched as his head rolled off the pillow and he readjusted it, watched his eyelashes flutter. So peaceful. An amazing gift.
