Like I said, I'm trying to be more mature about the whole thing... you know, the lack of "me" time, the constant holding/rocking of an infant who just wants Mommy 24 hours a day, but whew... it's hard on the back, the arms, and the mental stamina...
Not to mention the fact that it makes blogging rather difficult as well!
And, I admit that I'm feeling a bit frustrated by the fact that this is the year I really wanted to focus on handmade gifts for my family, and it's looking less and less like I will be able to do the things I have in mind to do.
So, as I was walking around with Grace in a sling this evening, trying to focus on the positives, I looked down into her sweet little face and saw that she was just desperately wanting to snuggle with me and go to sleep. I mindlessly started humming a tune to rock her to sleep, and then choked up when I realized *WHAT* I was singing:
What better reminder for me as I was starting to feel sorry for myself?
This time is so, so brief. Lord, help me to continue to enjoy every minute of it!
