What is keeping me up?

When I go to bed at night sleep doesn't come quickly. My mind races with insignificant stuff like "I wonder what time Lily will wake me up in the morning" to more important things like "When will I ever get around to organizing my office!?" and even more mind boggling topics like "God...will we be expanding our family again...ever? Do you have a sibling planned for Lily?"



That last one occupies my mind quite a bit. I am happy/content with one child. I don't feel like we are lacking. BUT, I have always wanted two children. I've always wanted Lily to experience life with a sibling. Afterall, you know how much I love my sister -- I don't know what I'd do without her. But, I don't know what the future holds...so for now, Lily enjoys life with her cousins. She and Payton (turned 2 in August) are very much sibling-like. They laugh and play...and fight like siblings. I'm so thankful for these sweet relationships, but that doesn't always help me sleep at night. I am, however, a fabulous nap taker. I can fall asleep no problem in the middle of the day! (and I do that as often as Lily allows it). I should probably organize my office instead...

Oh how I am missing my naps...
and these days especially as I am up often too, wondering when, if Maëlle is ever going to have a sibling.
I have to remind myself that so often we are missing the big picture but He knows better...

Hoping you find "the answer" soon!

I am glad Lily and her cousin enjoy one another so much.

God has a plan, he will lead you in the right direction.
My hubby and I had only planned for one and then well, beautifully it changed, you'll know when it's right.
Thanks for the sweet comment on my site, it made my morning, I was giggling through my coffee. LOL

I hope your answer becomes clear. Our family is complete and I know that in my heart but it took us 10 years to get there. I will pray for you.

It looks like we both have things keeping us up at night! I pray that God will shut off our brains so we can go to sleep. :) I don't know what God has in store for you, but I know that He will bless you and your family. Hugs to you ...
