It’s 3:00 a.m. and I’m up writing. Tomorrow is Maraya’s 8th birthday which alone is enough, but life itself has been eventful lately. Honestly, I’m a bit over-stimulated.
Maraya is so great because she’s been talking about her birthday, but last night she very curiously asked “What are we doing for my birthday?” She used her sweet little tone, too. She knew I wanted to take a trip, but I hadn’t committed to anything yet. She trusts me, but with her birthday being 2 days away she was obviously concerned. 🙂
Maraya’s birthdays are extremely important to me. I try to make them very special for her. The trend has been every other year we go on a birthday trip. 4 was Disney World, 6 was D.C., and 8 ummm it’s tomorrow, remember?
Yesterday wore me OUT! Mid-term, lack of sleep, plus surprising news at a car repair shop. I shut down to the world at 8 p.m. Good rest makes a huge difference. I feel rested now. It’s 3:00 a.m. and I’m up writing and cleaning. I have a kid’s birthday tomorrow, and a trip to make. Here goes!
Please pray for us. Stay tuned for pictures. Dallas or Houston, who knows?! We’re just going to get up and GO! 🙂
