Today I am taking on one of the many roles that is required of a mother.
My eldest son is sick with a bad cough as of yesterday.
Last night, at about 2am after taking his temperature, and discovering his low grade fever had returned, I went into his room to give him another dose of acetaminophen.
He immediately started chattering away.
Mommy, look at this!
Mommy, look cool car sticker!
Mommy, look tower!
Mommy, look beach ball!
Mommy, look soccer ball!
All this peppered with coughing and smiling.
He was so excited to show me everything in his room as if it was my first visit there.
It is times like this mothering at 2am is easy.
Instead, we were like young children among you. Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.
1 Thessalonians 2:7-8 NIV
