Swift Landing...

I was going to tell about my awesome weekend and all the friends that gather and the cake we baked...

I was going to tell you about hurricane Irene and it looks like it wants to come visit us this way and might force an evacuation on us...

I was going to tell you a funny story about my 1st day of school when I was five...

But I am laying in bed wide awake at 4:30 in the morning and I am listening to my girls while they breathe rhythmically. Because today was one of those days when my heart was in my throat clogging all passage ways and making it impossible to breathe.

My little one is so eager to walk and today she lost her balance used her hand to catch her fall but her forearm was not strong enough. She has what is called a buckle fracture...  It just breaks my heart that after 3 kids the last one which should make me by default more experienced breaks something and I could not catch her fall.

The Doctor said it was hurting me more than the child and yes, I am one of those of mothers that can't keep it together when her kid is hurting. I am usually great during emergencies and when times are difficult and someone needs a word of encouragement. But when it comes to the kids... My kids... Nothing works and nothing soothes me. I want them to be healed and I want it to be now. I know there are many things I won't be able to control and I know all I can do is pick her up as she goes along and reassure her it will be okay.

I doubt time will grant me that serenity... I would rather be a martyr and carry within all and any pain...
I also understand that there is nothing I can do...
Only hope when they do fall...
They fall with grace and softly...

  1. First of all, Maia looks so grown up and lovely on her first day of school!

    Your poor little one. I pray she heals quickly and that your heart soars again soon. She'll be ok Mama.

    Praying Irene passes you by.

  2. Oh wow - how did I not find your blog before now?
    Your pics are absolutely gorgeous, as are your kids.
    I hear ya on the whole mom thing (breaks my heart every time my daughter has gotten hurt)...stuff just happens...hope she feels better and you too! Even a more experienced mom of 3 can't predict the odd accident...don't be so hard on yourself.
    LOVE your blog!

  3. I really like the processing - and the first shot is great. Makes me hungry.

  4. I'm glad I came across your blog from the Wrestling Wednesday blog hop.
    I really like your pictures and the way you post your blogs.
    I hope your little one gets to feeling better soon.

  5. Oh no I sorry to hear about your baby falling. I would be the same but like you say they will fall we cant protect them from everything but we can be there to help them get back up *hugs* also stay safe with a hurricane coming xxx

  6. Hi, I'm your newest follower. So sorry to read about your baby hurting herself - I hope shes gets better very soon.

    Love your photos and I hope the hurricane misses your town xxx

  7. So sorry to hear about the owie! I bet she'll be on the mend soon. Sending healing vibes. :)

    As for the hurricane, the latest reports I saw said that it's going to pass us from a bigger distance than first thought. I'm just hoping we get a heavy dose of rain (which we should). We need it!

  8. Poor baby! I get broken up when my little guys are hurting too, it's just the worst thing ever. I hope she has a speedy recovery! As a mom of two boys, I'm used to one of them always being injured (comes with the territory) but it never makes it any easier.

    Hopping over from the Tuesday Blog Trail! I'd love it if you would stop by my blog to say hi when you have a chance. :)
