We’ve worked hard and played hard for quite some time now.
I’m stressed and I’m tired.
My boys are exhausted.
Dinners consist of arguments, whining and crying.
And so we work to fix it.
We all hunker down for a little snuggling and story time.
We all get into soft, comfy jammies.
We close the curtains to shut out the lingering summer sun.
We go to bed long before the fireflys come out to dance.
And in the midst of our dreams we hope to find peace that will bring a calm back to our lives.
We will remind ourselves that sleep and rest is as important as the play we work so very hard at.
We will take time to breathe and relax.
And in the morning we will rise and greet a new day with a new attitude.
