I prayed for them
I believed they’d happen
I visualised them
I talked about ‘us’ having them
Guess what mama’s they don’t exist!
I remember the deputy manager at nursery politely rolling her eyes when I talked about them. Clearly she knew better and understood the faith based talk (we attended the same church) and found her in the room when we we went to visit the nursery, in that moment I knew we had found our nursery. So glad my partner convinced me to not turn back when walking to the nursery. It was a rather long walk from the bus or station and I didn’t quite fancy making it in typical English weather.
I digress, this was meant to be a short post for parents to hold on. It seems there is no escaping this phase. In as much as I don’t like her crying, lately that is all we can do. As she overcomes her frustration and being unable to communicate that, I am holding on to and this too shall pass.
2 Corinthians 4: 17-18 “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever. So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
