Today I just want to talk.
It can be so difficult raising children. On the day
of their birth you are suddenly full of joy, fear and love.
Emotions I can't even describe in words. You follow
them as they grow . Worrying over their every move.
Worrying about each situation and how it will affect them.
Then one day you blink and they are grown up and fighting
for their Independence. I know this is how it is supposed to
be but it doesn't make it any easier to see/ be a part of.
You know that they have earned this and you have
earned the joy of seeing them fly.
It doesn't make it easier to deal with. I have always
been a mom involved. One who knew where her kids
were at all times. They surrounded me. I enjoyed every
second of it. Now Heart is ready to grow and move on.
It's what all my work was for but I'll miss it, Miss her
so terrible. I know she will still be here but much less
and that makes it difficult. I have four more children to
go through this with. I doubt it will get easier as they
leave the nest. I have talked about this before I know.
It is heavy on my heart at times. It's strange to have this
feeling and have a toddler. I busy myself with that and
hopes for all of them right down to the smallest.
I know this is why God put me here which makes
me wonder all the more if I am choosing successfully
for them. I suppose we all question ourselves and
this feeling will pass over tomorrow and return on
occasion. It is time to find my new role as a mom.
of an adult child. New territory indeed.
Keep in Touch
