Diary Entry – 11 July 2020

12 July 2020 – Siblings

This weekend felt like a full house!
Uncle Calvin and aunty Candy came to visit you today – I say “you” because we hardly get visitors, we were always the one’s going to visit. (Been advantage for me, I often don’t feel like going anywhere at the moment)
Your brother and sister were here for their usual weekend visit too. It still blows me away at the love they have for you. They are also now getting the hang of holding you. I think they enjoy talking to you as well.
It brings tears to my eyes. I am so happy – God is SO GOOD!

Uncle Calvin just wanted you to wake up. He, like your dad, has such funny things to say. Always remember that they love you to bits. Uncle Calvin likes to tease, so always take it with a pinch of salt. Your sister is happy, Uncle Calvin won’t be teasing her so much anymore.

Your brother and sister start school this week. The schools had been closed for quite some time due to the Covid virus. We trust our Heavenly Father to keep them safe during this time. Your brother is in matric this year – probably going to be a tough year for the matric’s with the shut down and long time away from school.

I too am feeling a bit more at ease with you. I can tell you are more relaxed and happier when I am. I do find that when I think I know what I am doing, something else comes along to challenge me. I know I have mentioned before, but I have never prayed so much in my life. Some days it seems like a constant prayer, I wake up praying, fall asleep praying…. way too many concerns going on in me. Need to channel my prayer to rather be of praise and gratitude, turn my thoughts on their head!

The Lord created you perfect and He has a purpose for your life in the time you were placed here on earth. I am so grateful for this answered prayer – you! And I need to keep my eyes on the Lord, where my help comes from. Who would have thought one could feel so happy and so concerned all at the same time? Yet, all of it is worth it.

I read something somewhere recently: Remember, there are many firsts, there are just as many lasts. Last time you will want to be snuggled before bed, last time you will sit on my lap, last time you will want to kiss me in public…. the point is to enjoy every single moment with you, enjoy the firsts – relish in the middle because you never know when it will be a last moment.
One of my colleagues told me, when your dad and I were getting married, to stop during the proceedings of the wedding day, look around and take it all in. This helps build your memories and make the day seem longer – rather than the day flashing by and being over before you know it.
I intend to have the same approach with watching you grow.

Bible verses at the bottom of my book
Matthew 5:9 “God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.”
Mark 9:23 “Anything is possible if a person believes”

My Mom’s favorite:
A couple years ago a relative of sorts, that works at an eye clinic , assisted me when I was having an issue with my eyes. From the sweat during exercising, my eyes bacteria levels went out of sorts (bad bacteria overrunning the good bacteria – Microbiome) my eyes were itchy and my eyelashes were falling out. So I have been using Eyelid and Eyelash Cleanser Foam (50ml) from Chrissanthie.I ended up also having a toenail issue and being pregnant and then a breastfeeding mommy, I have not been able to use medication to sort the issue out. I ended up using this eye foam on my toenails too. It didn’t make the issue go away, but the toenail fungus never spread either (I am unable to scientifically state that this was an effective solution – happy, however to report, that I still have my toenails and they are no longer thick and discoloured now {in 2023})
But wait, there’s more. This relative gave a gift for my little baby, and in this gift was this Chrissanthie eyelid and eyelash cleaner for babies. I can’t seem to find it on their website, but it was an amazing thing to have, individually wrapped wipes that you lay in warm water just before cleaning your little one’s eyes.
