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!
