Strength for the Journey

Relying on God in our strange trip with Mitochondrial Disease

The Golden Hour

I prayed for them,
made promises to God
if He would just
bless me.

I was thrilled
when I discovered
their tiny presence
within me.

I spent months preparing,
weeks in anticipation
days in waiting
to see them with me.

I was so filled with joy
as I held each of them
and counted their fingers
as they reached for me.

And now, as they have grown,
as much as I love them
I find I can hardly wait
for them to go to bed without me.

Some days I live
for that golden hour
after they are asleep
and it’s just my husband and me.
