On a Thursday Morning


I started a new job last night, so I didn’t get any baby time. And I set a goal to get up early to do my writing in the mornings before I get her up and get us off to school. But this morning when the alarm went off, I didn’t take the computer out to write. I snuck into her room, crawled into bed with her, and just held her while she slept. Because as much as our children need us, we need them even more. I know childhood is short, and I should treasure it. She won’t always be this small. She won’t always want to snuggle mommy. I’m sure there will be times when the only time she and I can be in the same room together will be when she’s sleeping. So today, getting up and holding my baby was more important than anything else.
