According to my blog stats, this post, written just over a year ago, has been making the rounds again via social media. It gives me so much joy to know that it’s a comfort to those in the trenches of new parenthood, as well as a happy reminder to those in other ages-and-stages of parenting of a fleeting and precious time.
I have loved hearing from so many of you as you reflect on your own “just waits.” Some of the comments, from moms and dads who are a stage ahead of me, with now-adult children, gave me great perspective as I travel through these teen years with my own kids.
I’d love to write a new post to share some of these, and I want you to be part of it! Leave a comment here on the blog, or email me with your ideas and thoughts. You will get full credit, of course…or I’ll keep your identity confidential, if you would prefer.
Think of the encouragement we can offer–together–through sharing our “joyful just-waits!”
I’ll be “just waiting” for your responses… 🙂
PS You will notice that “Our Family’s Story” is now password protected…it’s just the “age and stage” we’re in! I am happy to share the password with you, particularly if you are a parent of a child with special needs. Please email me for information.
