A Year of Gratitude: Day 117 (a day late)

Today I am grateful that I got to (inadvertently) take a brief nap with Baylor.  He actually fell asleep during his rest time, an unusual event these days, and it was time for him to get up so he would still be able to get to bed tonight.  I leaned over and gave him a hug, but he didn't stir at all; not an eye flutter, not a groan of recognition that I was even there.  So, seizing the moment, I snuggled in with him and closed my eyes, happy just to be close to the little guy.  I didn't intend to fall asleep, but I did for a few minutes and it was wonderful.  I know these moments, these close and easy moments, aren't going to last forever, so I'm trying to soak them up while I can.

Have a wonderful day!
