We’ve had a wonderful week, but this morning awoke to a sick little girl who needs lots of tender loving care. She’s nestled on the couch watching the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe right now, and only half awake, curled around a mixing bowl - just in case.
Just a day in the life of a mommy, and though it’s not my favorite kind, I’m so glad for the privilege of taking care of her today. I’m glad to be the one to wrap her in her princess blanket and deliver water and saltines. I’m glad to stroke her hair and tell her stories about dwarves and magical rose gardens. I’m glad to pray for her and comfort her.
This post by SouleMama reflects the same kind of gladness in motherhood, joy in the right now, and it was good to read this morning.
