I AM Here.

Pull up to the diaper station at an angle. Lock right brake. Start removing baby bands. Tears spring up. I am needy. Gaze out the window. Darkness looms. Thunder rumbles. It's early afternoon.

"Abba," escapes from my lips. Exhaustion tries to escape.

"Yes. I AM here." A whisper. Rain graces the earth. And my thirsty soul.

Sigh. Gratitude. That's just what I need to know, to hear. Tears escape. Sigh.

Child, He is there. Always. For you.
