“In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for thou alone, O Lord, makest me dwell in safety.”
“The years are short but the days are long.” This cliché is so often spoken when it comes to babies. Here I am, fifth time having a 7 month-old baby and I realize that they years are indeed short, but so are the days. Some people have joked that 2020 has been the longest year ever, but I disagree. It has gone by in a flash. It seems only yesterday things were “normal” and in the snap of a finger we are already at the end of September. As we continue in what feels like an endless lock-down, I am trying to relish every moment with this sweet babe who will only be a baby once. This time is fleeting and I am seeking to enjoy it and be grateful. In fact, I seek to do that with all of my children. My oldest daughter is eleven and the reality that she is over half way done with her childhood is unreal to me. They are all so special and spectacular. I hope to not take these days for granted.
