Have You Had Any Cringe-Worthy Moments?

My friend had just given birth to her first baby, and a tiny one at that.

Little Viv was a preemie, but such a cutie, and was finally home in the arms of her mama. I took a meal over to the family, chili and some fresh baked bread. I had no children at this point, and was so excited for my friend, I had a million questions. And I wanted to see the baby room! We sat down in her living room and she was trying to nurse, but was having a difficult time. I kept blabbering on about who-knows-what, asking questions, and looking around, while she was being polite and gracious but trying to focus on getting her baby to eat – which the baby would not do. I don’t know when I finally stopped talking and left, but looking back, I can’t believe my friend didn’t say to me, “Sarah, can we chat later? I need to nurse Viv now.” But she didn’t do that; her kindness covered my poor etiquette.

I really had no idea how inconsiderate I was being that day. I would never do that to a mama now unless she asked me to stay and chat.

Come on over to (in)courage with me and read the rest of my article, Grace For the Woman Who Doesn’t Know.

    I’m guessing that the tiny Viv was mine?? It took MONTHS for the two of us to get that nursing thing down. That’s how I know it must have been me. 😉 I wouldn’t have known it from the rest of the story though! All I remember is feeling so great that you stopped by to visit. And I remember that you complimented me on looking so good so soon after her birth. I felt like a million bucks. As far as I was concerned, you could have stayed and chatted all day if that’s what you were chattin’ about! 😉  I think the grace was coming my way that day. Thanks for being you.
