Emma: Mom, can we play a game?
Mom: Sure- what would you like to play?
Emma: Can we play that game where we make your bed and then Sara's bed and then my bed?
Mom: *A little stunned* Absolutely, we can. What should we do after that?
Emma: Ummmm, then I can lay down and take a rest.
No joke- this really happened. We played the game and she had a blast! She is now resting on her bed reading books and listening to music. Sara is napping, and I now have at least 20 minutes (the average length of Sara's mid-day naps) to clean the house and get some work done. Someone knew I needed a bit of a break today, and I am grateful for His timing.
