That’s how I feel about Mackenzie these days. She is growing so much, so fast. She is a constant source of joy. She is learning so fast, and constantly on the move, exploring, testing, climbing, and reaching. The size and scale of the world around her doesn’t phase her. She is ready to tackle it all.
I am at once reminded just how small and fragile she is. I want her to go on being brave… Just with a mommy-enforced bubble of protection around her.
As much as I want her to be brave, also want her to be strong and courageous. I want to teach her to overcome, to be afraid and yet do things anyway. To not be afraid to fall (or fail).
That is what this last week has been about. If you follow me on Twitter, or if we’re friends on Facebook, you’ve heard the story about Mackenzie’s play accident on Saturday. Her hospital admissions test is today, and the procedure itself is on Friday.
While we practice being strong and courageous and trusting God, please keep my little one in prayer. She is still so small. My prayer is that God would hold her gently in the palm of His hand.
Yikes! Poor Mackenzie… and poor Mama. 🙁
