This little family of mine is everything. I held Lincoln through his last nap today, just rocking in his nursery (with the curtains closed and the ocean noise app on) and stared at that perfect baby face. It made my heart so heavy – with grief, with fear, and with a bit of guilt.
There are many good things in this life. There are some important things. And there are very few critical (eternal) things. I wonder why I bother sometimes with anything but the latter.
And so, at 8:20pm as I head off to bed I’m not complaining that I’ve been up since 2:45am with this baby….and as I look at these carefree pictures from Sunday evening, I’m committing to cherishing these two a bit more this week – because they are some of the few things that really matter.
