As a mom to 7 boys it seems ironic. I am an introvert and I need quiet to be myself. My best self.
For years I struggled to get quiet during rest time, so I fought hard to keep it. My oldest is 13 and he still rests because I need it.
Almost two years ago I decided to get up before everyone else, which was earth shattering because I love my sleep.
I've grown to love that time by myself with my coffee, Bible and journal. The Lord speaks to me and I beg him for grace for the day.
