Each new day brings challenges and new memories. As the mother of a 2.5 yr old I am finding myself being replaced in position of head “boss”. Through all the new assertiveness I’ve found that my downtime it is more “recovery time” sort of like the first 3 months of having an infant.
Though they seem like the smallest prayers and the quickest little pleadings, I have found myself encompassed in the help of heaven. Today was a day where I especially knew that God loved me. After a few late nights this week and extra stress outside of family life, I prayed that I could have a closer relationship with Samuel.
I have felt myself in another place mentally and emotionally even when I am with him. To make matters worse he has been pushing me away in order to be more independent, which is completely normal at this stage of his development.
Today I had the greatest day with my boy. We played together, we laughed, we cuddled, and I know it was an answer to my prayer. I know the simplest things today will turn out to be the most pivotal things in the “tomorrow” of my young son’s life.
I am grateful to know that I am not only a mother; I am also a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. I feel his love surround me, bring peace, and create moments full of light and meaning that will far surpass this mortal existence. He knows me, of that I am sure. He answers even the smallest plea and the simplest cry, and I am so grateful to feel His love within the walls of my home.
