Who needs sleep?

So have you ever gotten into bed sleepy, with the thought that you've got as close to a perfect life as it gets...only to then remember that you might get to achieve your life-long dream of being an astronaut too?

I mean, seriously...I've gone on and on about how good God is to me before...but really...life can hardly get any better than it is right now. Does that seem an odd thing to say in the middle of a financial crisis in our country? I've got a wonderful husband who has his quirks, but who takes excellent care of me and who loves me very much. I've got the cutest, smartest, sweetest baby outside of a uterus right now...and another one (who is also the cutest, smartest, and sweetest - yes they can both share the titles) inside my uterus right now. We've got jobs, we've got savings, we've got a mortgage that we can handle for the foreseeable future, we've got minimal non-mortgage debt, we've got cars that work, we've got supportive families that love us, we've got a circle of friends who love us and pray for us, we've got a good church, and a cat named Monkey. I mean, seriously, what more could you ask for?

And I might get to be an astronaut too...

Yeah...break out the Farscape DVDs...there's no sleep for me for a while tonight...

Wow! I saw your comment on Pioneer Woman's blog, and I couldn't resist reading more about your rocket scientist possibility! I'm pretty non-science myself, but I'm amazed at what cool stuff God's doing in your life right now! Congratulations and good luck!!

Another Pioneer Woman fan who saw your comment on her blog :D

Congratulations on the astronaut candidacy! I'm working at MSFC on the Ares I - frustrating work sometimes, but we're supposed to give you a safer ride to the starry expanse than what the STS provided, and meet some ambitious mission goals. Please keep the Constellation program in your prayers, that everyone makes the right decisions so America can have a more affordable but still safe replacement for the Space Shuttle.

Saw your comment on one of the Bloggy Giveaways about the "I make milk; What's your superpower?" shirt and died laughing. If my husband ever gives in and we have 1 more, I NEED this shirt! Where do you find it?!
Amen to this post also. Thanks be to God for His love, cause I surely don't deserve all He's given me! We are truly blessed!
