Some days are more tiring but so worth it!
- I am grateful if I can get 3 loads of laundry done and unload the dishwasher (don't worry if I didn't succeed)
- I have given up on trying to keep the houses spic & span (to my perfection!)
- I praise God for a loving husband who is not expecting a meal the moment he walks in the door and all my "chores" done! I know he cares that I am attending to Parker and doing my best to keep things up when possible!
- Staying home is worth the sacrifice to hold Parker in my arms and see the daily changes.
Lord, help me remember, when I feel It's a chore,
the time will come when I'll hold him no more
asleep on my chest (the crib refused, the blanket, the pacifier, gone unused).
What better place is there to lay his head
than against my heart, my arms his bed?
For infants grow up and leave us behind
with only memories left to remind
us of midnight walking and pre-dawn rocking,
of soft, helpless babies unable to sleep.
So, Lord, make me patient and keep me awake
while I cradle Parker, and don't let me take
for granted the moments I spend in the night
with this baby boy--Your gift, my joy, my delight!
Proud mom to Parker- Jenn :)
