It is Monday and maybe Kate knows it. She's had a kind of tough day. She has not been as relaxed and calm as normal so no walk or road trip today. She also has been very hungry. I fed her FOUR bottles after her nap. Maybe she is having a growth spurt. Growth and change is always hard. God created us not as stagnant creatures but as creatures that are designed to continually grow and change. We often resist it because it takes us out of our comfort zone. Growth is good if it is according to God's plan. Stagnation is never good. But during our growth times we may need someone to just hold us. That's what I'm here for Kate.
