This evenings agenda is all about me/myself & I.
I have been feeling emotionally, physically & soulfully spread thin. Switching off between the many hats I’m currently wearing wears on me - especially if I am not taking time to decompress. One of my necessities: downtime in the form of ✨ALONE TIME✨ .
For me, me time looks like: no expectations, zero external responsibilities, endless possibilities - possibly in form of exercise, sleeping & rest, catching up on a task that will make me feel more peaceful, a dinner solo, Netflix & chill, etc.
Tonight I’m going to catch up on my h2o intake, snack, cuddle my cats, do the laundry, relax in bed, & go to sleep early.
Because this is months over due - Goodbye, farewell, see you on my better, post-alone time side. ✨

"In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety" ..... Als ich vor ein paar Jahren an mächtigen Schlafstörungen litt, hat mich der Herr - Dank sei Gott - zu diesem Bibelvers geführt. Jeden Abend hatte ich Angst davor, ins Bett zu gehen, weil es mir unmöglich war, zu schlafen. Erst gegen 5:00 Uhr morgens, kurz vor dem Wecker, nickte ich ein und war den ganzen Tag wie gerädert. Bis der Herr mir diesen Vers zeigte!!! Nachdem ich ihn jeden Abend bekannt und Gott gedankt habe, dass ich mich in Frieden hinlegen und schlafen darf, wurde ich vollkommen frei!!!! Höre nie auf, das Wort Gottes zu bekennen!!!
A few years ago as I suffered from sleep disorder the Lord led me to this scripture - praise God! Every night I was fearful to go to bed because it was impossible for me to fell asleep. Shortly before the alarm clock rings at 5 a.m. I was able to doze off and felt the whole day like I've been hit by a truck - 'til the Lord showed me this vers!!! After I confessed this scripture and gave God thanks, that I can lay down in peace and be able to sleep I was totally healed from this sleep disorder!!!! Keep on confessing the Word!!! #givegodthanks #dankseigott #schlafstörungen #sleepdisorder #psalms #Psalme #sleep #schlafen #
We had such a rough time coming to Phuket we slept 3 out of the 19 hours it took to get here. We were so exhausted yesterday and towards the end a bit delirious. But we've just now woken up from 9 hours of sleep and are feeling refreshed. 😃

This is probably the best sight in the world. Camille slumbering on my couch after yet another best night ever. We had quite a few of those back when she hadn't fled the country to pursue her dreams of living and breathing in Toronto. But what about my dreams of cheap vodka, impossible nights, hangovers in front of the TV and long talks about all the stuff they don't teach you in school They're on hold for now.
Eight months ago the day of her return looked like a black pearl in a sea of olives viewed from a 100 kilometers away. But we passed the halfway point and I'm counting down until I see her again. My only real concern now is that when I finally do get to see her again I might embrace her in a hug so fierce and full of love it might kill her. -

Tonight I held my niece while she fell asleep.
I did the same thing just last week.
I cuddled her close. Sang gently to her, held her hand (and her foot, just like Aimee used to love when she was a baby!) and waited.
I waited until her eyes drifted closed, I waited until her breathing deepened and her body took on the sleep heaviness that means they are truly asleep.
... And it was such a precious moment to have with her.
I remembered all the times I did the same with my guys when they were little.
I STILL sit with the girls now.
We read, sing, and quietly talk until they drift off...
I watch their eyes close and listen as their breath deepens and I bask in the perfect peace they present.
They say they can't sleep unless I'm there.
I created this... This rod... - But it sure doesn't feel like a bad thing.
My oldest no longer needs me to sleep.
It's such a bittersweet feeling... Sweet that he's reached that level of independence, that he'd rather play with his toys and fall asleep doing it, that he has all those memories of me right there with him for all those years
... And bitter, because I miss that time with him.
We won't ever look back and wish we had spent less time with our children. We won't regret the cuddles and the closeness... We will cherish this, forever!
