I planned on writing something profound and meaningful today, but I'm a bit bleary-eyed from lack of sleep. I can assure you that nothing can bring a mother to her knees faster than a baby up all night with a fever and a virus. This got me thinking about how all the priorities I had for the day are basically out the window, as I have a very unhappy "velcro-baby".
So upon further reflection, I thought about my heavenly mother Mary and I pondered a bit on her priorities of the day, specifically the Annunciation. What if she had decided to blow off the angel Gabriel and say she was too tired to deal with it right now?? Hmm. Kind of hits you right between the eyes.
Well, I've got MY priorities set for today, and plenty of tylenol and coffee to boot!
I thank God for my vocation of motherhood and all my babies, even when they are sick. +JMJ+
