my insomnia manifests itself in difficulty falling asleep.
not staying asleep.
so when I awaken suddenly in the middle of the night for seemingly no reason I always think that there might actually be a reason.
I double check that the doors are locked.
I check on each of the girls to see if they are breathing.
(tell me that I am not the only freak that does this.)
then I spend time in prayer before falling back asleep.
my mind always races and I need to calm down.
chatting with God always helps.
last night I woke up at 3:16a.m.
the doors were locked.
the girls were breathing.
haiti was on my heart.
I turned on my phone and checked twitter in the darkness.
Kristen had just posted the following:
Out of haiti.
Evacuated to an airforce base in new jersey.
Tired but so glad to be in US.
They are coming home.
I am rejoicing.
Keanan is not.
I am weeping.
