A new kind of love

Posted on: May 31, 2011

This morning I awoke to the sound of my little one in the midst of a bad coughing fit.  I rushed to his crib, picked him up and held him close to comfort him as I patted him on his back while he continued to cough. 

Seeing my little man so uncomfortable and hearing him cough that way makes me feel like someone is putting a knife into my heart.  Every fiber of my being wants to take the pain and discomfort away from him and put it onto myself instead. 

I never knew it would be this way.  A friend told me that the love you feel for your child is like no other.  She was right.  But, what she didn’t tell me is how it would feel when he is sick or injured.  My love for him is so huge that I would give anything to make my little monkey whole again. If I had a magic wand, I would wave it over him and fix him in an instant.  But, unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that.  So here I sit, praying I don’t get a call from the babysitter that his cough has become worse and feeling like his doctor appointment tomorrow morning can’t come soon enough. 

The love a parent has for a child is so strong, so amazing, so wonderful, and yet so painful at the same time.  Feeling this way about my little “G” makes me realize just how much more love God has for us, His children.  It’s an infinite amount that words can’t begin to describe.
