For the third day, the baby has arisen at 4 a.m.
Our mingled communion of exhaustion and hunger is exhausting and endearing.
I pray that she will go back to sleep.
I also ask for your blessing and consolation on those also awake in the night:
Those with no comfortable place to sleep
The ones who have received middle of the night calls
Those keep your holy hours
Your nocturnal animals
All move and breathe in you.
