9/4/2010 "Oh, Fussy One"

posted Sep 4, 2010, 6:27 PM by Carolyn Hall
    Well, I learned last night that it is soooooo much easier to love one's children when they are well-rested, happy, and cooing or babbling pleasantly.  It is much harder to think loving thoughts at 11:00 p.m. when an infant-who-will-remain-anonymous is screaming at you, despite every attempt at goodwill on your part.  It makes one feel rather negative, frustrated, and downright resentful at having one's night interrupted with such inconsiderate behavior.
    But, I remember, God is good - granting strength, endurance, and patience . . . and rest does come eventually.  And, those difficult late-night moments do make one pause and give thanks for the blessing of a battery-operated baby swing.  :-)
