As I move a little slower this morning, I thank God for helping me to understand, over the past year especially, that this is something to be grateful for. My baby girl woke me many times throughout the night as did a mischievious dog who thought a baby bouncy seat was her new bed.
I am so grateful to have a daughter who can wake me and that I can wake and walk to her room to comfort her. I am even more grateful for the love I am privileged to experience as her mother. It is unlike any other.
It may sound cliché, but the truth is there are so many that can’t do a number of the things I just described; whether it’s have children and experience that love or walk down the hall. My husband, a firefighter and paramedic, describes people he encounters every day like this.
So to my tired mommies out there, enjoy this time and that you have someone to be tired for.
