Trying to get Rafi to sleep upstairs tonight, my little finger being used as his pacifier - and looking out across to the darkened church, and thankful I was not outside in the minus temps. I began thinking about all the things I hadn't done or still needed to be done in the next few days, and the list was getting longer and longer.
However, slowly I began to feel that this is what I should be doing right now - enjoying the quiet, the low-light and helping Rafi get to sleep. It was for a few moments peaceful, the dogs were even quiet - and I suddenly wanted to make an concentrated effort to remember this moment as we rocked back and forth. Perhaps I won't remember this exact time - writing it down may help - but it was lovely while it lasted and it's the small things that count...and Rafi woke up about 15 minutes later!
