It’s no wonder that God tells us to come to Him as little children. Mason has been in this world a little over 18 months, and he is already constantly providing me with insight when I find myself in a rut. Just a couple of weeks ago, my contract where I worked had been terminated early. By early I mean, 3 months early. It came as a surprise and it hurt.
(I know if my manager had say in the situation, the decision would have been different. I have no hard feelings toward that person, in fact, she has been the best manager I have had to date.)
The following morning was hard for me. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t feel like a failure to my family. There were anxious moments where I wondered, based on the way the economy seems to be heading these days, was I going to be able to find similar work again? Amidst all of these types of thoughts swirling around in my head, I told Melanie that I would keep Mason home with me.
Mason and I went to the living room, unfolded his little couch, and laid down to watch some TV. We were watching it for a little while, well, he was watching it. I was preoccupied in my negative thinking. When it happened, it seemed like it happened so fast. I questioned whether it actually did happen. Out of nowhere, Mason sits up and turns around and gives me a kiss and then laid back down to watching TV again. He doesn’t just give those out for free. You have to at least ask for them! After that moment, everything I had been thinking about vanished…instantly. New thoughts started to fill my mind:
Had Mason been sensing that something was off with me today?
Did he just try to cheer me up?
My family loves me regardless of what happens. Mason had helped me come to a realization that I had already known, but I guess, needed a reminder of. My family loves me regardless of what happens in life. God loves me regardless of what happens in life. He has a Plan, and like he has proven in the past in my life, He is in control.
That’s Unconditional Love.
