Day 187: Unspoken Words II
The truth and bottom line is our kids are sick. We pray it was the common cold, but the reality is they are sick.
As it feels everyone is running around you like a chicken you are way too numb to respond. You pull it together because God gave you a child to take care!
Once you hear the words that all parents fear you begin living day by day. The sad reality is you should have been living that way your entire life. Today is a blessing and another opportunity to share with them God's love.
When you start living day by day you start living! You no longer have time to focus on all the negativity of this negative world because who wants to pass that on to their kids?
You do what has to be done! Not every day is filled with smiles some are filled with tears, but even through the tears you find something to be positive about! Why? Your child needs you. We all have heard/read our days on earth are numbered (Job 14:5), but are we living like they are?
The moms I have meant cherish their children. They speak positivity, love, grace, and forgiveness. They show them that each day is a gift for tomorrow is never promised.
There are days that Satan thinks he wins. Days that positivity is drowned by the hate of Satan, but even in those days God's grace and love wins!
How would you love and live differently if you weren't granted tomorrow? Are you guaranteed tomorrow?

Lindsay- you said a truth. I believe that of all the things we worry about- only 20% of it happens. if we just took each moment and trusted God we wouldn't have all the stress. When you have a sick child reality hits you. It changes you because you are sobthankful for today and you pour out that love for your child. Many blessings to you and your family.
