Coffee Tuesday.

<PhotobucketIt's okay to have a cup of afternoon coffee on Tuesday, right ? I hope. because i could use some girl time. Some talking time. Today I would probably have asked you to meet me at a starbucks or another coffee house because earlier today i was  needing a break from my kids in the worst way. I have lots of thoughts swirling in my head that need somewhere to go. I am sure I would be chatting your ear off.

I would tell you that we had a super rad fourth of July and i photographed a wedding this past weekend NINE months pregnant ! I know, I am awesome !! But I am thoroughly wiped out today. I would also mention about how on Saturday night I experienced a horrible toothache in the middle of the night. I woke up at 3 am and my mouth was throbbing !! The pain was shooting up my ear. I tried a warn shower and that didn't calm me down. I used warm compressed, took Tylenol and gurgled salt water. NOTHING helped.
I finally opened my ipad and started to read my bible app. I was half awake and needed the reassurance that I was not alone.

I started thinking about suffering and pain. Why is pain always so much worse in the middle of the night ? I had the same toothache all day Sunday and barely noticed it. But Saturday night I was praying someone would hit me square in the jaw. Emotional pain is the same way. It's night time that it creeps up on us.

like always I was reassured that I was not alone. And somewhere between the Tylenol and the praying and the hot compress I was able to sleep for a few hours.

How do you deal with night time anxiety's and fears ?

  2. Hmm...it's totally true, pain always seems worse at night (or, for me at least, sometimes in the early morning). Maybe it's because we don't have a lot of other stuff going on to distract us, so we have no choice but to wallow. :) Sorry about your tooth. Hope it gets better soon and you get a good night's rest tonight!

  4. hi! thanks so much for saying hi this weekend on my blog! yes, i know you from around blogland :) but wow, almost welcoming a new little baby!! that's so awesome. bless you and your growing family. but so sad about your discomfort. i think pain is worse at night - any kind - because all the distractions stop and we can suddenly feel everything again. at least it's a good time to inventory your feelings and work them out in the quiet. take care, girl.

  5. MAN!! I'm glad you were able to get back to sleep! And I see from later posts that you ended up with a root canal. Bad news... I've had one of those! OW! :0)
    When I'm feeling lonely/scared/sad in the middle of the night, I always pray and it always helps!
