One of the things the Lord has been impressing upon this past year is to see the other. To make a point of seeing a situation from another perspective. It’s been interesting to say the least, I don’t always appreciate the Other you know?
It was sitting there waiting for me.
Giving another glimpse
Of a world I had yet to see.
Waiting to announce a pregnancy, hide it for a while.
Why wait? Such joy to be had.
But.. pregnancy is hard for me
What if I lose it?
What if the child is ill.
I need the time…
Do this thing, because I said so.
But the youngling questions
If I know why then I’ll want to
Listen all the more.
Does it hurt you to tell me why?
Find a job won’t you.
Hurry it up, what’s taking you so long.
But it’s hard you know
There’s THIS that I so long to do.
It’s hard, and it aches, and it so much a part of me.
My mom died years ago. My heart aches for her still.
Oh come on, get over it.. all mom’s die.
You grieve, you move on.
But you fail to see
She was my heart. We talked ALL THE TIME.
She knew me so well and would call even before I knew to call her.
The other it wants to fill my days
Reminding me to think some more
Showing me that,
that I am to am sometimes
