Do you ever?

Just want to snuggle up so close to your little bundle of joy and never let go? There is definitely a bond between child and mother, no doubt. I tend to believe that there is a very unique bond between "single mommy" and child. Its just us. Just us and the world.

Paul says in Corinthians that an unmarried woman is anxious only about the things of God and that a married woman is worried about how to please her husband. While being married can be a wonderful, beautiful thing I'm thankful to have this time with God- alone, to myself. I think its an area its okay to be selfish in. Paul also speaks in the same chapter about how we should be as if we aren't if we aren't parents to say this life is short- we should use our energies to focus on Him- not our own lives. Since we will only be here a short time.

For your law has been my song in the night

I will remember your name- I will.
I will remember your name- I will.
I will remember your name.

Cry out...I cry out
To God with my voice.

He gave ear to me...
In the day of my troubles
I saw the Lord.

My soul it refused comfort.
My soul it refused comfort.

Call to remembrance
My song in the night
I meditate in my heart
For your law has been my song in the night.

You know you were born in the new millenium...

...when mommies no longer buy those photo albums with the sticky pages to stick priceless little mementos of their children's lives. My mom actually used to sew little "covers" for her albums- very crafty, and very cheesy. My daughter will soon realize that I have -some way, some how- recorded almost every moment of her life through facebook, myspace, blogspot, livejournal, and countless other forums I belong to....etc etc... With every online avenue I have to brag about every tiny little milestone or smile my daughter makes she will soon know how muchshe is loved. And she will probably know a great deal about her mother that she didn't know as well. I've come across old pages plastered with information from numerous years ago that I didn't even know was out there still...*sigh* I'll have to do a lot of covering my tracks by the time she learns to read.

She already plays with my laptop. I actually think that she believes it is hers. I made a huge mistake by searching for online baby games for her. Online baby games? Really? Yep. And I'm the type of mother that already lets her infant daughter play computer games. Its all for the greater good. Television I'm opposed to, but whats wrong with the internet? Ah...don't get me going there.

Hopefully Princess GG will subscribe to my blog one day.
