Today while we were at the park Samuel got stung by a bee on his bottom lip. At first we thought he had bit his lip, but his reaction was not like he got bit. He was afraid and hurt and the same time and kept crying much longer than just a bite. Then, his little lip swelled up.
Everyday I love my kids. They bring me so much joy! But, there are certain times when I feel this love even more deeply. When my heart swells and no words can describe it. Today was one of those days.
My friend was with me and as sweet and compassionate as she is, it just isn't the same when it's not your child. I'm always concerned when someone else's child gets hurt, but when it's my boy it's completely different. I want to do whatever I can to make it all better. I want to take the hurt away.
Thank goodness he did go quickly back to my happy, smiley boy. He's napping now (and, hopefully, so are his brothers!) and I pray that his lip is 100% when he wakes up.
