  • In my early twenties  (before marriage)and it was 2 a.m., I was usually coming home from a date or hanging out with friends.  The time seemed to be early evening for me then.

    In my late twenties (post marriage) and it was 2 a.m., I was sleeping in my new husband's arms dreaming peacefully.  I was too tired juggling a new marriage, new household responsibilities, and graduate school to be awake.

    In my thirties and it was 2 a.m., I was trying to get to sleep while my mind was racing and solving the latest "Work" related problem.  Up at five and in bed by twelve... the life of a career focused/driven professional.

    In my forties and it is 2 a.m., I am either rocking a teething baby to sleep or looking up and realizing that I have become obsessed with twitter, face book, and blogging.  This is the life of a blogging mom of two boys under 2 1/2 years old.

    When I am in my fifties and it is 2 a.m., both of my son's will be teenagers... so I will be up with worry and prayer over them.

    When I am in my sixties and it is 2 a.m.,  my son's will be in college... so I will be up with worry and prayer over them.  And praying on how we are to finance both college and retirement at the same time.

    When I am in my seventies and it is 2 a.m., I will have insomnia  as I will have never been used to sleeping at that hour... so I guess I had better keep my twitter, face book, and blogging obsession.

    Who knows about in my eighties as I never seem to sleep past 2 a.m. or get to sleep until after it.

    By the way in just 2 days, the new layout will roll out.  Excitement is building in my house... I hope you like it as much as I do.

    Wow, I coul so relate to this post. I became a first time momma at 34, via adoption. We adopted a total of 4 children, the last at age 42 (I'm 46 now). I hear, "Hey, Mom," all day every day, literally 24/7 (we homeschool). When I'm 80, I hope to simply rest, lol.
    Blessings,
    Toni
