I am an over-protective worry wart of a mother!
And I don't want to be this way! I know I need to give all of my worries and fears to the Lord. I know that He is in control. I know that His Word tells me not to worry and fear, that those feelings are not of God. I know these things and I still worry! I do have confidence that God will answer my prayers if I trust that He will.
In the meantime this is what I think about...that when Gage is not in my care he may find something in someone's house and choke on it. That he will get hurt somehow when no one is looking. That he will be sad, scared, confused without me there.
The good news is that I am working on it! First of all, I am devoting time each day to pray! I am also going to start swapping childcare on a weekly basis with a friend from church, which I am very excited about! And this weekend we are leaving Gage overnight with Grandma E while Craig and I spend a night at a Bed & Breakfast in the area. That was my idea by the way! And I am excited about it and dreading it at the same time...
Does anyone have similar experiences? Was it worse with your firstborn? How have you overcome your worries and fears?
