I need to remember...

I need to remember... is a weekly time to reflect on the past happenings of the week. I discovered it on a blog I have been reading recently called Picklebums and just loved the concept. So I have decided to join in the fun of remembering and reflecting on the past week every Friday.

Here is my first reflection (I hope it's OK?):

I need to remember the sick baby. The one who cries for his mum during the night.

I need to remember to be patient, to give him extra cuddles and the extra love he needs during this time.

I need to remember that he can't tell me in words what's wrong, and that sometimes it can take a while to figure it out.

I need to remember that the sleepless nights and days won't last forever. That when he comes out the other side his eyes will be brighter, he will give me cute little cheeky smiles again, and will laugh often.

  1. Your reminder to yourself about when Nicholas is better (Bright eyes, cheeky smiles, lots of laughs) made me think of that saying "Live well, Laugh often, Love much". It's good to stop and reflect every now and then, before time passes everything by :)
