10 am, 12pm, 2pm - I looked at the clock
4pm, 6pm, 8pm - bed
A whole day went by and I did nothing
Well if you look at the whiteboard filled with Have to do's and Want to do's - I did nothing
Not a single item got checked off or even started.
But if you look at my little boy - I did something
He woke up with a high fever and all day needed to be held, to be soothed, to be rocked and cared for
It reminded me of last summer,
when I stood by my livingroom window -
bouncing back and forth,
watching summer come and go -
as I desperately tried to console this crying baby.
And it made me realize that we have come a loooong way.
We've already had so many wonderful summer moments and the season has just begun.
So for now - instead of using these hands to plant seeds or stain fences, I'll use them to hold this precious boy knowing that this too shall pass!
