To all those who are going through a trying time or experiencing hardships, just know that in time, “this too, shall pass”. You head is bowed as you brave this current storm but like the seasons that come and go, this too, shall pass. Every situation is temporary and life is ever changing.

My current situation is not my final destination.

 ♦ This is for the Mom who hasn’t slept and is holding her baby who has a raging fever.

 ♦ This is for the Dad who stays overnight at the hospital holding his child’s hand as his child has yet another operation.

 ♦ This is for the families suffering through a financial crisis.

 ♦ This is for those feeling grief after a loved one has passed away.

 ♦ This is just to let those parents out there know that they are not alone.

That scary moment, those long nights, those worrying thoughts- they will pass.

Even the darkest night will end and the storm will pass.

In a previous article, I spoke about Parenting and how hard it is- Parenting Isn’t Easy. I think back to my parents and them bringing up five kids and the first time I heard this mantra from my Gran to my Mom as she was feeling overwhelmed and her saying, this too shall pass my honey and you will all live to see another day.

  • • Midnight visits to the Emergency Clinic- many
  • • Overnight stays at the hospital (tonsillitis, dehydration and fractured bone
  • • Fevers
  • • Operations
  • • Strange spots and rashes
  • • Anxiety and nerve
  • • Nightmares and not sleeping

These are just some of the experiences we have had with our kids. We’ve been there and come through the other side.

This is a reminder to savour all those moments, the good with the bad; the rewarding and the challenging.

For everything there is a season… a time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to mourn and a time to dance.

    So true! Just a few minutes ago, I was walking with my 3 oldest kiddos, and as they walked in front of me, I thought, “Who are these big kids? With their big hands and feet wearing adult sized clothing?!” It just goes so fast!

    This is such great advice. I know when my daughter recently had the stomach flu, she threw up for 72 hours straight. I brought her to Urgent Care in the middle of the night (on my birthday) and sat there wishing to take away even a moment’s pain. And then, by the next day she was up to her old tricks! It so important to keep it all in perspective! Awesome post!

    This is a great reminder that I needed to hear. Next quarter, I will be waking up at 4:45 to take my daughter to the train so she can get to her early college classes on time. Not looking forward to it, but you’re right, it will pass.
