I think I’m officially a mommy blogger, as all my posts of late center around my baby.
But how can you blame me? She has yet to lose that new baby smell as my husband jokingly says.
She is my obsession.
She will always be my obsession.
She is sleeping in my arms as I type, and oh, if only you could smell her! She’s scrubbed clean, dressed for church, and doesn’t smell like sour milk. Who knows if we’ll actually make it to church. It’s so easy to hold her and let the minutes tick past, as if there is nothing more important than this. Is there?
I find myself struggling with that very thing. I must now make a conscious effort to find balance, especially in other relationships. I must give my loved ones some attention too. They’re being neglected I feel.
A mother is a true servant to her children, sacrificing her time, food, showers, make-up, and all kinds of other previously thought important things to meet the needs of her babies. We are called to be servants to everyone, just as Jesus Christ came to be a servant o all. If only I could show love to every human being I encounter as much as I show love to this baby in my arms. After all, isn’t love “action” rather than “feeling”?
I challenge myself to this greater love for others and it is HARD for me. But I desperately need the world to be a better place for this darling girl to grow up in. We CAN make a difference in someone’s life. Let’s all try, okay?
And all the others.
