Sweet Sleep

No day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap. ~Carrie Snow

There is something about a sleeping child that tugs at my heart. Especially when it is my Luke. Nap time for him is a restful time for me. This little boy is quiet, but he has always used up a lot of my energy. And although he can be so frustrating at times, I cannot describe how beautiful and sweet and earnest he is. Achingly so. Unfortunately, naptimes are becoming fewer and farther between.

I sent him for quiet time on my bed after he refused to fall asleep in his own room. A few minutes later I peeked in on him and found him sound asleep. The moment begged to be captured, as it will become a rare sight around our house in the days to come.
