To see a world in a grain of sand
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
- William Blake
There is such stillness in sleep. Okay not literally. If you listen to most kids sleep they cry, chat, rollover, wiggle, and fuss. If you are my son you just run on into Mom and Dad's room and crawl right into bed. Who knew a 3 year old could take up a king size bed?!
Yet that is what it feels like each time I peak in on my kids after I tuck them into bed. For a brief moment the world stands still and all is well.
