As Momma's, when our princesses and princes get boo boos on their bodies, we momma's get boo boos on our hearts. Today my little girl had her first big fall and hit her head and nose really hard on the nasty edge of our granite fireplace flooring. She was climbing on the foot cushion for one of our sofas and the cushion flipped off the sofa and sent her toppling face first. I keep pillows on our granite fireplace to try and minimize injuries and thus far we have been injury free. Sigh. I saw the entire thing and I was moving quickly to her as I saw her climbing on the cushion because I knew what could happen and like those moments depicted in slow motion in a horror movie, she toppled before my legs could reach her. It's sometimes a bit more than a mommy's heart can bear to actually witness your child (or any child for that matter) getting badly hurt and I know you all know what I mean.
I melted into mommy Heaven as I watched my little girl's toes wiggle to the music and watched her rub the satin edge of her blanket between her fingers. I gazed at her big boo boos on her face and my heart broke but, as I listened to the sweet words of Amazing Grace I felt the sweet arms of my Jesus holding us both. The Grace of the Lord is amazing. There are no words to describe how sweet His grace is in my life. I'm so thankful He is watching over my little girl tonight. I am so thankful He gives me extra strength for the super tiring days and then scary evenings when my little one gets hurt. I am so thankful for the peace that passes all understanding. I am so thankful to be a Momma even when it hurts really bad. I love you so much Daisy and I pray that your boo boos heal quickly in Jesus name!
