Shouted from the top of the stairs at 2 AM:

Reaction from the bottom of the stairs in the bedroom at 2 AM:
Two sound-asleep adults leaping out of bed and moving faster than either have moved in decades.

Reason for sleep intrusion:
“Mommy, please rub my feet.”

Rubbing her feet, I couldn’t help but think of how big they are. Holding her small toes between my hands, I couldn’t help but thank God for the gift that she is in my life. Getting up and going back downstairs, I did, of course, pray for the rest of the night in restful sleep!
