Clean Sheet Gratefuls

This week I'm grateful for:

#1, 2, 5.

43. Her courage - talking about it.

44. Gut jarring, eye watering, gotta run to the bathroom now laughter.

45. Girls washing their own sheets and making their own beds.

46. Sleeping between cool, clean, fresh smelling sheets until my eyes are ready to open.

47. New mercies every morning.

Sheets and sleep as baptism, new days born afresh. I like this.

slouching mom said...

yep. the sheets, they resonated with me, too.

why does it make such a difference, i wonder?

Love the double meaning! I like both, but the new mercies have to be my favorite.

gotta go with #44 as my fave. i wouldn't know what #45 is like, although my oldest did rake leaves for about 3 minutes this afternoon.

How old do your kids have to be until you can once again sleep until your eyes are ready to open? I've misseed that, these last 3 years 7 months.
