That is something I haven't experienced for a long time until a few months ago.
I've been working with a "sleep doctor" for almost 2 years now. We finally found a concoction of medicine to target my lack of sleep and major muscle pain. Hooray it has been working! I still do not sleep perfectly, but aprox 4 nights of the week I sleep pretty soundly. Let's just say the first time I didn't have to toss and turn a gazillian times was a miracle. Then, to actually feel myself melt into the pillow...wow, made me smile the next day!
The other day I was moving around like a normal person would, cooking, cleaning, engaging in good conversations. For a good 8 hours. A glimpse into what used to be. Could it be again? Maybe...
I put smiley faces on my calendar that represent the good (less painful) days.
There used to be NO smiley faces, okay, maybe one every few months.
Now, since I've been sleeping more, smiley's are popping up at least once a week.
Our lives are a journey towards knowing God and experiencing the power of His presence and the fullness of His Deity. With each step we take we are discovering His unfailing, gracious Love and the beauty that comes when we walk with Him.
We have been married for 18 years and are grateful to God for matching us up so perfectly to encourage, support, and love each other. We have three awesome children who God prepared uniquely and specifically, even before their birth, to be a part of our family. Everyday we are speechless as we stand before the grace and love of God and are thankful for every breath He gifts us with, looking hopefully to our eternal home in His presence.
