When your child is little, everyone tells you, “They grow up so fast!”
I recall feeling quite the opposite when my children were tiny. Despite my best efforts, I felt disorganized, inadequate, and like I was walking through a mine field trying to manage my children’s medical challenges. It felt anything but fast. Emergency room visits and hospitalizations continually derailed plans and made the days long. I worked hard engaging with my kids, fostering creativity and imparting biblical truth. Yet, I was so exhausted that I had no desire to read to them by the time I got them into pajamas.
