T is for Teething, or Turn to the Lord

Here is another post from my guest blogger daughter. This one involves the same child who lost her carousel tickets, but occurs when she was just a wee baby and was written the day after the event.

We had a Heaven-sent experience last night. Baby has been having the hardest time the last couple of nights and days with teething. The night before last she was restless and constantly needing to adjust her position and literally nursing constantly the entire night long (no sleep for anyone.) But last night was much worse. She was screaming uncontrollably, not able to catch her breath, in hysterics and could not be consoled for a very long time. I was at my limit, my nerves were gone and I just couldn’t take it a second longer. I was exhausted and spent. Finally, I held her in my arms and said a mother’s prayer asking for some relief, that she could be comforted, that she would relax and calm down, and receive relief from her pain; that we would all fall asleep quickly and not wake up until it was time to wake up. As I prayed, her breathing slowed, and the screaming ceased. I could feel her body relax as the words came out of my mouth. She fell asleep in my arms and we all were able to sleep through the night. She didn’t wake up until 9:30 the next morning, smiling and laughing. Heavenly Father sure does love his little children.

As a mother myself, I am so grateful that my own children have found the peace, solace and support they need from daily communion with their Father in Heaven.
