It's a little past midnight as I type, and my daughter has just now fallen asleep. I have been trying to get her to sleep for the past hour, and she simply refused to go. I started to get frustrated and angry because she did not go to sleep so that I could get some work done before I go to bed.
I uttered a prayer to God to grant me extra patience, and proceeded to hold her and nurse her while I tried to get some writing done. While stopping by the SITS blog, I happened upon a post about Cynthia, and I felt so sad for her and her loss. It brought tears to my eyes. All I could do was look down at the baby in my arms and thank God for her.
Here I am getting frustrated with my baby because she wouldn't go to sleep when I wanted her to go to sleep. It can be easy to lose sight of your blessings, and take things for granted. I don't want to take God's precious blessings in my life for granted. Not for a moment.
Please stop by Cynthia's blog to show her some love, if you have time. Please pray for this hurting woman.
