That’s More Like It

When we put the little man to bed around 8 o’clock last night, he said he wanted me to snuggle with him for a minute.

So I crawled in the bed, wrapped my arm around him, and that’s the last thing I remember until about 5:45 this morning.


Somebody say “hallelujah” one time.

And I still have loads of Uganda stories. Including one that involves Shannon and a(n) (alleged) monkey.

Oh, yes. ‘Tis true.

See y’all in a little while.

  1. mmm. lovely sleep. can’t wait to hear more. welcome back.

  2. Erica (A Yankee In Jawja) says:

    What Lora Lynn said…Can’t wait to hear more.

  3. Oh, goody! I love alleged monkeys!

  4. Welcome home Boomama, I know your boys were thrilled to see you!

  5. That’s the best kind of sleep – arms wrapped around a little one and drooling in his ear. Love it!

  6. Good for you! Can’t wait for the rest of the story. Can we call you Paul Harvey?

  7. Welcome, welcome back, dahling! So glad you go some rest. Can’t wait to hear more about the trip . . . especially that monkey thingy!

  8. OH, how divine!
    Dying to hear more!

  9. Those Pesky Monkeys!

    Glad that you had some restful sleep. I bet ‘A’ sure loved having his Mom’s arms wrapped around him!!

  10. BooMama – thanks for keeping it real – always. Have LOVED reading about Uganda – DYING to go someday to see our sponsored children and our Dorcas Widows in Kampala.

    I can totally relate to sleeping so well with a child in your arms. Leaving a snuggly child for a week is a HUGE sacrifice. Keep him close!

  11. Sleep: Now that’s a good thing.

  12. Well Good MOrning Sunshine! And Hallelujah!

  13. That is exactly what you needed :)
    There is nothing like snuggling. My youngest is the biggest snuggle buddy and when I crawl in the bed or on the couch with him it is all I can do to keep from going to sleep :)

  14. Good for you! And I bet your little man ate it up. Can’t wait to hear about the (alleged) monkey :)

  15. I’ll give you a Hallelujah and an Amen!

  16. You and Shannon both sound completely wiped out, so I’m praying today (promise) that you’ll both feel more refreshed in all ways. xoxo

  17. Anything over 7 hours is a miracle to me. Can’t wait to hear every detail of the trip! We sponsor with World Vision, but I’ve already told my hubby we need to spread the Compassion some love too! Thanks for your inspirational posts! You are doing such a huge part for the eternal and provisional future of so many children through this outreach. Way to go!

  18. Glad to hear you got some rest with your little one. I have so enjoyed reading about your trip, eventhough it is heart wrenching at times. I look forward to hearing more.

  19. Nothing better than holding one of your children in your arms, cuddling with them, and sleeping forever. We love to do that here at the Pumkin Patch. ;)

    Glad to see you made it back to the ‘Ham safely!

  20. So glad you’re home safe, sound and rested. Now hurry with the alleged monkey story. Your stories are the best!

  21. I hope Howard has a big boy bed and that you didn’t end up with your knee lodged into your elbow this morning.

    I’m just sayin’…

  22. 9+ hours of sleep?! That’s a miracle even when a body isn’t jet-lagged. Amen and Hallelujah!

  23. Hallelujah one time!


  24. That’s 585 minutes :)

  25. WOW! AWesome sleep…can’t wait for the alleged monkey story! :-)

  26. “hallelujah”

    glad you got some rest.


  27. Oh…sleep is such a beautiful thing!!!

    And…I’m dying to hear about this alleged monkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. I can’t imagine having that much sleep!! How glorious and refreshing!! Lucky you~

  29. What a lovely nights sleep. I hope it goes far towards getting you caught up!

  30. By the way, I have a profound question…..was it Mexican food or Fried chicken? I like to ask about the important stuff you know! How did the men do while you were away? I’m sure you will have lots of stories eventually. I just need to be patient, huh??!!

  31. Oh, BooMama, how happy I am for you!

    Also, I posted a link on my blog about your upcoming speaking engagement for Proverbs 31. I think my readers will appreciate the event. Take good care!
