Just a little over a year ago, I gave birth to our son, and our world changed forever. We prayed for him and God took us on a journey that changed our lives before we finally found out that Chandler was on his way. I think this has made me realize even more how precious and special he is.I love every minute I spend with him, and I love how he knows just what to do to melt my heart. He certainly has me wrapped around his little finger!
Most of the time I feel pretty confident with the mothering skills I have learned, even though I know there are some people who might not agree with everything I do. I did have a good example, after all, and it's nice that most of my friends are moms, too. However, the last couple of days while Chandler has been sick, I have felt helpless.
He cries my name and reaches for me, I keep him hydrated and fed, I hold him close, and I give him Tylenol when I can to help ease some of the aches and pains, but it still doesn't work sometimes. He's so pitiful, and my heart goes out to him, but there is nothing I can really do but pray. So, that is what I am going to do, because on my own, I am always helpless.

  1. My heart breaks for you. I've been there (as probably every mother known to man). You are doing everything you can for him. Being there is probably the best thing you can do for him. When he cries, comfort him. Pray over him. Ask God to heal him, and believe He will. God knows what you can handle, or else he wouldn't have given you this beautiful child. He picked you to be Chandlers mother because he knew that you would take care of him, and love him. Keep you chin up, and know that in a few days, he will feel better... and as he gets older, and has more sicknesses, he will remember how incredibly soothing you were as you were making him feel better. :)
