Tooth "ache"

I could have thrown a parade over Rylyn's firsts.

There is a mourning that comes with the joy of firsts. That mourning is more profound with the second child than with the first.

Didi's first tooth is coming in. I felt it cut the gum today. Her toothless grins are now numbered and I am trying to keep hold of her gummy grin in my memory.

Bible Reflections:
Psalm 30:11 (NKJV)
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness

Lord, thank you for firsts. As with many things in life, firsts too are about the journey, not the destination. Help me to savour the sweet moments of the journey with Your Grace as they pass. Amen.
