What was I doing again?

Oh yeah. I was nursing a cute baby. Looking after a “blush of boys” (that’s a real phrase).
Plotting when I can catch a few winks.
Doing laundry one handed.
Recovering from surgery.
Making coffee. Not getting to it before the pot shuts off. Reheating a cup of it in the microwave, which reminded me of my Mema, and made me cry, again.
Figuring out where to put the pack and play.
Making sure no one feels forgotten or replaced by the new baby.
Worrying about whether I can do this whole mom of six thing.
Remembering that I actually can’t.
Being reminded that I must have faith that although I cannot do this thing, my God can and He will indeed get me and all of us, through it. One way or another.
Holding and marveling at a little tiny, living, breathing, miracle.
That’s what I was doing.
