Here's to all the mothers' who have little ones at
home, lives filled with school age hustle and bustle
or the moms' who wonder if their teens will
ever grow out of the stage they're in...
Once I had a little girl, my first,
the one who gave me the name Mommy and
the first one to wrench my heart when
she proudly got on the school bus that
first day of kindergarten.
She came to me through
the years, to ask for prayer and to share
all her joys and sorrows.
Mine was the shoulder she cried on,
mine the ears who heard her tell of what
God had done in her life.
When we didn't
get along we always worked it out
eventually because she was willing to
face things until they were resolved.
I could tell her things
that no one else would care to listen to
about my own journey with God and my
struggles to be all I wanted to be....
If I could have done one thing differently
I would have enjoyed the journey more....
because now she is going to become
a bride and walk away into her own life
where I will be only needed when asked
and her husband will become the one
she journeys with.
Our relationship will not be the same again.
Your child is yours in completeness
for such a little while!
ENJOY THE JOURNEY
