31 Days of Ordinary Wonder: Whispers in the Darkness

Last night I threw the kids in their room and got in bed myself, so sick, by about 8:30. 

Then I heard the most perfect bit of Ordinary Wonder to end my long day. Annie has started reading to Graves in bed more and more and I just closed my eyes and really listened. She read him his tiny set of Maurice Sendak books that he's come to love so much. Her little voice was so soft and soothing but I could tell every time there was an exclamation point by how it raised a bit higher. Their giggles were such sweet music. 

Sometimes, when I feel like everything is crashing down around me, God whispers to me in the darkness through their little voices.
