Thanks to MOPS mommies

I just wanted to say a thank you to my wonderful friends at MOPS (mothers of preschoolers). I did what I hate to do yesterday- cry in front of people. It just makes me feel silly. Although, I am a big cryer- I do it alot, happy and sad. I am not a pretty cryer, get blotchy and my nose runs. Anyway, after the prodding of my friend Shelley, I spoke a prayer request for the sleepless nights and utter frustration I have experienced lately. And, generally I don't like to publicly announce my prayers requests, again- the silly feeling. There seems to be more important ones than mine. Long story short, just the encouragement from these wonderful ladies made me feel better. To laugh with them about their experiences lifted my spirits. I am so thankful for this group of moms in my life. If you are a mother of a preschooler, please check out MOPS- it will change your life and your parenting!

And, just to update, we had a better night last night, just one waking and right back to sleep!! Praise the Lord!

(By the way, I am pretty sure I did not spell cryer right, or even if there is such a word, but I know you will understand)!!

I must agree with Shelley, you are beautiful, no matter what. I am glad that you had that moment at MOPS, oh how I miss you ladies. Sadly, this would be my last year to be a part of the group :( I am so glad you had a better night that night. I pray it continues. Love and miss you!
