Oh man. The time is currently 3:29 am and all is NOT well. It was only hours after my last post, and my excitement of not feeling nauseous for two days that I found myself right back at the toilet. I made the mistake of going grocery shopping… too many smells…. too many weird foods equals puking first trimester pregnant lady.
So I have been tossing and turning all night and at about midnight painfully barfed up what little food I had eaten that night. Now I just plain can’t sleep and have decided to remove myself from the bedroom where I keep disrupting my hubby’s Zzzzzzzzzz’s.
I am going to spend the next few minutes hopefully falling asleep to my favorite Lullaby. It’s not my favorite because my mom used to sing it to me or anything. In fact I was about 23 years old the first time I heard it. It reminds me of a time in my life when I needed a lullaby each night.
When I was on my mission in New Mexico this song became my way to end each day. I really felt like the soothing voices of the men in the Mormon Tabernacle choir sounded so calming and kind of like God rocking you to sleep. I worked myself to the bone as a missionary… seriously at the end of a day my head barley had to hit the pillow and I was out. But there was always this time of reflection on the drive home each night when I would listen to this song and often feel like… I can’t do this again tomorrow. Yet somehow day by day I made it through.
Now when I listen to this song I usually get all teary eyed remembering the many faces and experiences I had in the “Land of Enchantment.” You might not get teary eyed from it, but hopefully you can appreciate it’s relaxing quality. As my former roommate Sara Ware can attest to… even adults sometimes need a good lullaby.
AND HOPEFULLY I CAN FALL ASLEEP!!!! Take me to dreamland Mo Tab…..
