It was lunch time and I had just put Little L in her highchair to feed her lunch. This time of day can be a bit of a struggle for us. Little L is a bit of a picky eater so we have fought many battles.;) This was one of those days. She did not want to eat and I did not feel like fighting to make her eat. Obviously giving up was not an option since she had to eat! About half way through lunch everything had piled up and I felt myself getting to the point I was going to cry. I decided Little L and I both needed to take some time out to pray together. As I began to pray the tears began to flow and I could no longer help myself. I had my head bowed on Little L's highchair tray and she began to pat it as if to say "It's ok Mommy, I'm here". This already began to melt my heart and make my day a tad better. I pulled Little L out of her highchair and hugged her tight! As if she knew I still needed comforting she looked at me with her adorable little blue eyes with a worried "Are you ok Mommy?" kind of look. What she did next truly melted my heart and I will never forget it! Little L reached up with her little hands and began to wipe the tears from my face. She knew just exactly what I needed in that moment! It is moments like those that make every other moment of motherhood worth it!!!! I love my little girl more than I will ever be able to say and she loves me.:) What a blessing it is to be a Mom!
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
