Letting go of every other thought, and reminding myself to remain in each present moment with her has to be one of the most challenging yet satisfying things I’ve ever tried to do.
I just love giggling and getting silly with her, but I also do find myself looking at my phone a bit too often…and thoughts of things undone sometimes distract me from fully savouring each moment of pure joy.
This gift called motherhood
When she gets excited playing on the bed with me, and collapses onto my tummy – for a few moments, she just lies down and chills out on me…it’s the best feeling ever.
I stare at her sweet face. This miracle. 🙂 How did God decide that I was deserving of such a daughter?
No, nothing that I did to have me deserve this joy.
But only because of His love, He graciously gives me this perfect gift.
This gift of comforting her when she cries, of making her laugh and seeing the sweetest toothless grin appear, of playing simple games together and observing how she thinks and feels…this gift of a “happy-tired” that only parents will truly understand.
This gift called motherhood.
I’m so thankful, that God – in His perfect way and precise timing – has really made all things so beautiful.
