The other is as though everything is a miracle."~Albert Einstein
Somewhere between the feedings, the dirty diapers, naps, and tears there is sheer exhaustion. This is no task for wimps. Mommies, please tell that new mother that she will make it. She will someday get a little more sleep. Her baby won't be little for long. Even in the aches of pains of healing, help her remember that women have done this before. They've survived; they've not only survived they've thrived by living. They've lived by choosing to enjoy the moments even when it would be easier to imagine a day... when the baby no longer needs night feedings...when the baby is out of diapers...when their tired eyes actually have some rest. Because the baby won't be little for long. His tiny hands will become toddler hands. He will mature, but don't wish his littleness away now. Let him be little.
Have you enjoyed the moments you've had today, or have you in your busyness been wishing them away?
