The Being in Human Being
These are just a few of the joys of being a mom.
And then there are the times when I was powerless. I couldn’t DO anything. I had no magical cure.
Heck, I didn’t even have the appropriate medicine!
I remember feeling so helpless and ineffective.
Once when one of the girls was feverish. She tossed and turned in her sleep. I had done all I could.
I really needed to go to bed -- it was in the wee hours of the night. Yet she wanted me there … begged for me to be there and panicked if I wasn’t.
What was I to her in those hours? I was simply being.
My being was with her being and there was great comfort in that.
So many times I get caught up with what I can do or what I can say but many times the hurting people in my life just need me to BE. Most children have a grasp of this and know to ask for it. My child even said so eloquently, “I just feel better with you here"
Yes, there's wonder in being a mom. Joy. Fulfillness.
