It’s funny how my little man struggles to stay awake. I am sitting beside his crib, standing periodically to shh-shh him, and thinking about how funny we humans are.
We go to great lengths to prove how self-sufficient we are. Benjamin refusing to go to sleep has nothing on my refusal to submit to God some days. And what a silly thing to refuse… Like refusing to take food on an overnight camping trip, or a raincoat on a trip to Seattle. That’ll show ‘em. Luckily I have a heavenly Dad who stands beside my crib while I moan and groan, and continues to graciously put my pacifier back in until I finally realize what’s best for me.
