A long weekend followed by some totally understandable toddler moments including, and all inclusive trip to tantrum town, a little toliet training regression, and molars that taunt me hovering right there under the gum line.
Then this nugget came back as a reminder from a older woman. She told me in the middle of one of these moments that one day I would miss even these trying times believe it or not. She now is afforded very few chances to see her grown children, and small grandchildren.
She grinned a grin of compassion patted me on the shoulder and said what I would not give to have just one more inconvenient moment like this. Even as I write this I am tearing up thinking about my perspective being off. That if I could see that there is still glimmers of some really amazing moments in the middle of the crazy. There was a time not to long ago when I was barren with a list of reasons why I would never be a mom, and the struggle to not be ungrateful for other peoples blessings. I was praying and Trusting God as I cried and Repeated.
Oh, the grace He shows us, that He shows me. God I thank you.
For these light afflictions feel heavy, but are only for a time. Remember you could have not been afforded the honor to even be “inconvenienced.” Children are a blessing and everytime my eyes are blinded I pray that this truth will help me remember how blessed I really am.
Remember ladies- Trust God Cry Repeat.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
II Corinthians 4:17 NKJV
