Sleep, Glorious Sleep

Lesson for today: I don't give enough credit to the power of sleep, especially in the lives of my children. We had a wild thunderstorm last night, with rumbles that sounded like they were going to rip the house off its foundation. My children don't seem to remember that now, but I have a feeling it affected their sleep. So, this morning when they were both slumbering when we otherwise would have gotten up, I just let them be. They both woke up in their good time; my son at 9:45 and my daughter almost an hour later! But my, what a noticeable difference in their demeanor from being well rested! And how much easier for us all to get along when they have pleasantness for their baseline!
