Today, I’m writing with the Five Minute Friday community writing group, and this week’s word is Surrender. If you’d like to join in, the linkup is here.
I am not a morning person. Typically, I’m not fully awake until about 9am. Thankfully, my nearly 2 year old loves sleep as much as I do, so she graciously allows me time in the morning to awaken, spend time reading my Bible, scribble in my prayer journal, and have my coffee before she opens her eyes. I have about 5 weeks left before Baby Girl #2 decides to make her entry into the world, and much of my alone time will then be filled in with feedings and diaper changes. I have no idea what this new baby girl’s personality will be like. I have no idea if she will be as laid back and easy as her older sister, although I sure am praying so. Until we meet her, we can only speculate and daydream. These next few weeks are going to be ones of anticipation, spending as much quality time with my oldest daughter and husband as possible, and letting go of my need for control (and sleep).
