For the second night in a row I’m up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep. I woke up at 2 and lay in bed for a while, composing a response to a blog post that’s been eating at me. Finally, I decided to just get up and write it. Then I still couldn’t get back to sleep.
This morning, I’m trying to at least spend some of the time in prayer so that this time and my suffering may not be wasted (Some good advice I’ve received from many sources lately, not the least from Fr. Stan’s homily Sat night.) But please pray for me. I’m really frustrated and know today is going to be another hard day. I’ve been having a hard time recently being patient with Isabella, especially when she gets fussy and tired herself, and know that a lot of that is just tiredness and feeling sick. So pray especially that I will be able to keep my cool when she starts to whine.
