This week I experienced a very hard "my baby should do that, and he is not" moment, and I survived. :) Six weeks after Carson was born a very good friend of mine had a baby girl. She is beautiful and healthy--- which I am so so thankful for, and I am so happy to share in the joy of her growth and development. But, as you other moms know, it is hard when these moments happen. It is a challenge not to break down, and run in a dark corner to hide our tears. And it was hard this time again. We were taking pictures, ( we tease that this will be Carson's future wife) and while I was still having to give Carson a little support to keep him sitting upright, she leaned over and crawled away. Of course, this was like a gut punch, again. But, girls I took that punch, and breathed in probably one of my biggest breaths, then I quickly prayed, "Lord, give me strength, give me courage, give me comfort in your PERFECT will." Immediately I was able to laugh as we both tried (me with one arm since I was still holding Carson) to tie her down and get a good photo.
These moments will happen for all of us, and all of us can take comfort in knowing we are not alone. We have each other and we do have a wonderful God who really does have a PERFECT plan for our children.
