Almost 2 weeks ago, I managed to mangle my left pointer finger in an electric hand blender ... yea, not cool. Fortunately, the closest medical clinic was down the hill and I was able to get in ASAP. During the brief wait for the doctor and my overall prognosis, all I could think about was, "In one week this won't hurt even half this bad. I know I'll look back at this moment and be so glad of where I am then..."
Fast forward to this passed Wednesday afternoon. Judah was going down for a nap and as part of our little ritual I was holding him and singing to him. Then it hit me that it had been over a week since my little incident, and here I was, remembering and feeling exactly what I thought. Then another surge of a thought came to me as I looked at that precious boy in my arms ... "One day you will be a strong good man and I'll look back at this moment and wish I were here..."
Life is so fleeting. So fast. I'm-a gonna hold on to this little one and drink up all these delicious moments.
