Sleep

Somehow, I think, when a child falls fast asleep in my arms and I take a moment to realize this, I am reminded of their sweet innocence. In that moment, it is as if I am brought back to the first memory of that child. It is like the child returns to that innocent state. Heavenly Father gives each of us tender mercies that bring the reality of our blessings to the forefront. I think, when a child falls fast asleep in my arms, those mercies are brought to past. I let go of my frustrations or any negative feelings held captive in my heart, I listen to the beauty of a quiet moment that I long for throughout my day, and I see the innocence that every child of our Heavenly Father comes to this earth with...before this earth takes it away. I love being a mother.
