There is upset, worried, even scared; and then there is deep down, shaking you to the core, take your breath away fear. For the last two months, events with my SweetGirl have had me teetering back and forth between denial and panic. There has been fear.
Kids aren’t supposed to get headaches. But occasionally they do right?
It’s not normal for little girls to be covered in bruises. Bruises all over their legs. Never ending bruises….unless said child is a super klutzo like her Mama. Right?
Children should not have back pain that brings them to tears. Aches in their sides that have them cry out in pain. Except she did just fall off the swing, oh and her bike, run into a bush, and fall off a bench all in the same day.
So when one night’s late night tears, and one Mama’s worries become just too much it was time to push the issue, push the Doctors, and find some answers.
My answers lead to this…
a huge sigh of relief.
I can stop waiting for the other shoe to drop.
I can breathe again.
Someone once said that having a child is like having your heart walk around outside of your body. No truer words were ever spoken.
It’s joy and pain, fear and hope, all wrapped into one.
It is the sweetest and purest kind of love.
Today I once again count my blessings, give thanks for my children, their health and just breathe……
When our children are happy, so are we.
Wishing you all the best of days.
