A Mama Tries So Hard Not to Blink...

A mama tries so hard not to blink.


A mama tries so hard not to blink, because she knows just exactly what that blink means...


…just a blink.

…just a mere breath.

…just another beat of her bursting heart.


But, to a mama, a blink is so much more..


She blinks…

…and nights of nursing turn into days of chasing.


She blinks…

…and wobbly legs become strong and steady.


She blinks…

…and a boisterous home slowly becomes quieter.


She blinks…

…and being so incredibly needed gradually fades.


She blinks…

…and getting a driver’s license turns into driving away to college.


She blinks…

…and playing dress-up becomes the “real” thing on a wedding day.


She blinks…

…and she now fully understands the phrase,

“the days are long, but the years are short.”


She blinks…

…and she realizes that never has God created

an experience both so very fleeting and so very enduring than that of motherhood.


A mama knows she has to blink…


…she just wishes she didn't have to blink quite so often—because deep within her slowly-breaking heart, she knows—those blinks are just so beautifully bittersweet.
