Life is crazy. And just when things seem to fall into a rhythm, something unsettles that rhythm. We zoom through life with a checklist. Did I do that? Did that get done? Do I need to do this today or can I put it off until tomorrow? Did I? In an effort to keep the rhythm, to keep the balance, we loose focus. We lose the truth of life, the importance of relationships and sharing God’s love with those we interact with.
My youngest son was born with a little dimple-like growth on his neck. The pediatrician diagnosed it as a misplaced duct, which sometimes occurs. It can be corrected with surgery, but as long as it isn’t causing any problems it can be delayed. So we were to keep an eye on it. Today is started oozing. He’s almost 22 months old. Tomorrow we are off to the pediatrician’s to learn what must be done. I don’t know what tomorrow holds. But I know tonight as I held my sleepy baby and prayed over him, I cherished the moment.
