Today I am thankful I kept a promise to my son. I told him we would have a sleepover one night in our family room next to the Christmas tree. That night was last night. We pulled open the lumpy, uncomfortable sofa bed, piled on blankets, stuffed animals and pillows and read a bunch of Christmas stories. We turned out all the lights except those on the tree and curled up together whispering long past our bedtime.
Am I tired and does my back hurt today? Yes. But my heart is happy.
