I accidentally cut my baby boy's finger while trying to clip his nails.
It was seriously one of the saddest, most traumatic things ever and I boo-hoo-ed like a crazy person. I most likely cried more than he did.
I always knew he would get hurt, fall, scrape a knee, break a bone and maybe get hurt by someone else...but not by me...
Hearing the cries that I caused was heart-wrenching. It felt as if a part of me was in pain, hurting, bleeding. It hurt to see him hurt.
...and I spent the rest of the night holding him, loving him and telling him how sorry I was.
I know this life is full of trials and pain and it is going to be difficult to watch him hurt. I only hope that he finds comfort in our Father above to help him face this world.
Lord, help me trust You with his life.
