Can you relate to this?
I find it so amazing how when my son gets hurt playing – a scrape on his shin/elbow/knee or even a cut on his lip – he comes toddling and crying to me; ‘mama, make it ok’. All I do is hold the hurt body-part, caress it a little, kiss it and blow on it… phooo….
And off he goes smiling, back to his game. As if the scraped knee/cut lip has healed completely, even when the cut/scrape is still visible. Sometimes there’s even a bit of blood still oozing out.
How does that happen? I mean I know I haven’t applied any ointment/pain killer – nothing. But it seems to work. Is it just psychological? Or is it another little secret between the Almighty and babies? Is a mother’s kiss really healing?
This unquestioning trust and faith they have in our ability to ‘fix’ things – and our miraculous ability to actually make a difference with nothing but our own breath is awesome.
It’s such an immense feeling.
Alhamdulillah. Feeling blessed being a mother.
