A hint of understanding.

It makes my heart ache to think of how our Father in Heaven must have felt as he watched his son in pain, wanting to take away Christ's suffering, but knowing it was something that Christ Himself must endure.

It is so hard for me to watch as my sweet baby girl struggles with her reflux and being allergic to milk. I know it may sound silly to some, but it is awful. It just keeps getting worse and worse. I would give anything just for her to be able to drink a bottle, eat, or sleep like most babies can. She can't because it is so painful and uncomfortable. It is so hard to stand by, knowing that you are doing all that you possibly can at the moment, but it is still not enough. I'm emotional. I'm struggling. I'm exhausted. Some days are better than others, but I am doing the best that I can and literally trying to take it one day at a time.

I'm grateful for sweet baby Miriam. I'm grateful to be entrusted with her care, to be her advocate, to be her mother. I'm grateful that in spite of all she struggles with daily, she is still able to smile:)


  1. Love your new layout! And I really hope that sweet baby girl outgrows these issues, How sad for all of you. You are a wonderful Mum and have such great insight, this too shall pass :) Hopefully sooner then later. Love you!

  2. You are an amazing mother! Your strength and patience amaze me. I am so hopeful for tomorrow. She is such a strong girl to be able to smile through all this. I love and miss you guys lots.
