Restful weekend

I haven't posted in a while. I've been resting, and so glad because it has definitely helped. Friday afternoon I was able to lay down while my friend Laura took care of the kids and dinner. Then my parents arrived yesterday afternoon allowing Rob and I to escape to the Stonebriar Westin to sleep. We got there around 4, and I think I stayed in bed until this morning at 10:45! We ate a great breakfast & got back in bed til we checked out at 1 p.m. To top off the weekend, I got a massage for my birthday, and then an early dinner at the cheesecake factory near our home. This much rest/sleep is not a possibility with three young children unless you have brave grandparents, so thanks Mom & Dad!

The sleep/rest has definitely helped me feel better, and I hope that tomorrow's visit to the gastroenterologist will provide answers for the symptoms I'm having. I'm so thankful that Rob got a lot of sleep & rest too. It was definitely deserved and needed for the double-duty dad.

Thank you God for the rest you provided so that we may be rejuvenated during this journey.
