I have to remind myself that he is NOT a baby anymore

Hello and good morning to all of you. I want to say thank you for praying for my son Patrick as he recovers. I Am asking that everyone will continue to pray as he recovers. God is so good and he is feeling better today. Just in case you missed my post, My son was really sick recently! I shared how I felt helpless as his mother and how he reminded me that he was not a baby anymore...

But even though he is 15 and a young man, when he is sick, He is STILL my baby. My 15 year old son Patrick is my baby. He knows it, I know it and I am telling the world that as loud as I can! His injuries were a direct result of him Playing that trumpet. Day in and day out of wear and tear on his mouth had him sidelined. I explained to him how sometimes the constant practicing and performing could take its toll on my young trumpet player. He woke up with swollen lips, A sore inner jaw and a terrible headache. So this mama has not left his side.

Father I just want to THANK YOU for covering my son Patrick today. I was so worried about him and he very rarely gets sick. I was so annoyed because I could not take his pain away. Seeing him so sick is not a moment that I would like to see again. I had to pray for his strength and my own because I felt helpless. He was so worried about a performance that was coming up and I had to be strong and let him know that his healing and recovery was the PRIORITY right now. I took a moment in the doctor's office and I said a prayer to God. In the middle of my helplessness God reminded me that his injuries to his mouth could have been a lot worse. 

I thank you Father for these reminders

I just want him to get better. 
I have not seen him in pain like
that for such a long time

So as we head back home, God I thank you for allowing the outcome to only be rest and no trumpet playing for a while. Please keep my baby boy Patrick in prayer. He doesn't want to miss a day playing his Trumpet and as his Mama, I want him to be healed!

Has one of your children recently suffered a injury? If so, I would love to hear how you triumphed through the helplessness and FOCUSED on their recovery. Until then, I will be praying for you.

I would love to hear from you here at the blog. Send me an email, or leave a message in the comment section.

  1. This is Patrick and he is my 15 year old...My Baby! The truth is, He will always be my baby. He is 15 and I love him just as if it was the first day I saw him in the hospital. As the tears are welling up in my eyes, I sit here and thank God for the close relationship that has developed with me and my baby boy. He is such a blessing to me.
