small things, big victories

Princess Morag is having one of those days.  When life is just plain hard.  When doing small things: like eating, and breathing, and driving safely - these are accomplishments.  And doing bigger things that take courage: like making a phone call are victories.  Holding herself together enough not to cry (well, at least in public) takes great effort and getting out of bed required more strength than anyone would know.

maiden wishes

Princess Morag has been pondering what she wishes for her daughter. And concluded that when one thinks of such things, it is not just about the future of her little maiden, it will naturally reflect the things she wishes for herself.  So in the darkness, with her daughter snug beside her, she hoped for these things:

  • that she would know she is loved
  • that she would not fear her own anger or other emotions but accept them for what they are trying to teach her
  • that she would follow God's leading in her life.
Life isn't often like a fairytale, but Princess Morag hopes that her maiden loves the Prince of Peace and King of Kings above all others.

" Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save...Blessed is he whose help in the God of Jacob, whose hope is the LORD his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them- the LORD, who remains faithful forever."  Psalm 146:3-6
