Well, we are finally back in our house. We have been here for a little over a week and we are all loving it. I do miss having adult conversation all the time to only having a 4 and 1 year old to chat with.
Mother's Day is just around the corner. This is a particulary special day for me, as a mother and a daughter. A little over a year ago, after my daughter was born, my best friend sent me a peice of flair on facebook that said "I make milk. What's your superpower?" I laughed at that because at the time I was having a difficult time nursing my baby and didn't know if I could stick with it for a year like I had planned. I did stick with it, plus a couple of month. This brought me to ponder the 'superpower' theory. I think EVERY mom has a super power, also known as intuition. On more than one occasion 'mother's intuition' has played a huge role in my life. Most recently I was talking to another mom I go to church with. We were waiting this past Wednesday in a church pew chatting until AWANA Awards Assembly took place. This mom started asking me about my son's eyes and how did I know something was off and when?. This mother of 3 boys begins to tell me her concerns for her newest bundle of joy. She said "I've never been an axiety ridden mom, never been burdened with concern" but for some reason, she was just so worried about her little 4 week old boy. The VERY NEXT day, she notices her baby is panting and fussy. She calls the doctor who asks her to bring him in to the office. After an x-ray they find that his lung is compressed and his stomach is in the wrong place due to a hernia (not sure how to spell but it's like a diaphramgtic) Bottom line is, she saved her son because 'mother's intuition' led her to seek medical attention. Baby boy has had surgery at Children's and is expected to make a full recovery! God, our Holy Saviour should be glorified! His print is all over this family! How awesome our God is! And what an awesome, special blessing it is to be called mom. So, Happy Mother's Day to my friend and her family. Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, Step-Mom, Mother-in-Law, and Grandma! You are all wonderful women!
