Since I am off from work this week, I have a little time with my cherub on my lap, to skim through some pictures I took earlier this month. These pictures remind me just how precious life is and how quickly it can change. I smile when I see Caedyn's dirty squash face and know that there are those better days ahead. Free from so much worry and anxiety about each passing hour. Worrying really begins when we become mothers, doesn't it? We worry every day about our precious children and what their future holds. At least I do. I worry about my kids, my husband, my family each and every day. However, it is a different worry when you have a sick child. It is only takes one split second to remind us that we are not control of our destiny, God is.
After a couple scares last night, today was a good day. Caedyn took at 2 1/2 hour nap this a.m. which has been unheard of these days. You would think it would be a restful change for me to have a sleeping baby, but I was glued to our newest big purchase, a video monitor. I am sure this uneasiness I feel will slowly fade away, but for now, it makes me feel better monitoring her every move.
My best friend, Lana has a similar story to tell. Her son Cole is not a stranger to the big "s" word and she has been a Godsend. She is my saving grace. She totally understands how I am feeling and gently reminds me when I am being ridiculous. I am thankful for that. I am thankful for her and the fact that we can both grow on these life journeys together. She gives me hope that there are better days ahead. Life goes on and we need to make the best of every day.
