Who says Sleeping Beauty has to be a GIRL?
One evening last week, when I was on my way to bed, I went to check on Matthew and give him the final tuck-in for the night. I came across him in the doorway of his room, conked out in one of the sleeping bags that I had set out for the next day (to go to family camp). What is it about sleeping kids that is so captivating, so emotion-gathering? Their innocence, perhaps, or the way their faces relax into something so soft and gentle? Whatever it is, it totally worked on me. I sat down on the floor for a few minutes on the other side of the doorway and just stared at him. Loved him. Offered up a prayer of thanksgiving for him.
