True Colors…

For the last 10 days I’ve been sleeping on an air- mattress in the basement of my sisters house. Leyton in the closet (with the door open, of course) and Adriah on another mattress right beside us. We drove 17 hours there and back! AND spent every day out touring, visiting, hanging, eating and my kids weren’t on any schedule at all. It really catches up with you after a while. I’m one of those who really needs to get my sleep or I get sick. So, I spent most of the time away battling a head cold. It really exposes my ugly side. I’m not very patient and get easily frustrated. It’s amazing how I really believe I’m a good person and then I get glimpses of my ugly heart and I realize what I am and what I’m not. You know what I mean?

I only get to see my family all together once a year and so we all come with super high expectations to re-connect, get to know each other, and have fun! We did just that. I love being with my family. We don’t get as much one on one time with each other but we have a blast being together. I’m blessed to be in this family.

I’m home now. Just want to be still, get rest and spend time journalling. I need quiet time. If I don’t get it…I’m not the same person. Weird for an extravert to admit that but, it’s true.

Whew! Just in time to gear up for 2 weddings this weekend. I’m totally excited and thankful I love my job!

My daughter says something about sleeping close to the floor seems to bring on head colds for her. Now, when she travels, she tries to sleep on something a little elevated and it seems to help. Crazy, I know, but worth trying!

Being away from home and not getting enough sleep is bound to take its toll on anyone. You can’t judge who you are based on temporary conditions. I have read enough of your blogs to know that you are a good person with good intentions.

I am extrovert and a redhead, too, and I crave me quiet time. Usually my quiet time starts around 10:30pm and even though I know I should go to bed – I revel in it for at least an hour or two.

Anyway, I hope you got the rest you needed and are back up and going…
