When I began my journey into motherhood, my thought of becoming a mother was of all the things I would gain and wonderful memories to be made. My goal in life was always to marry a christian man and be a mother. I am blessed to say that has all happened. The beginning days
of being a mother, were filled with so many new things and responsibilities that I all enjoyed. By the time, Michael and I had our second child, I was beginning to realize what motherhood, or even parenting, is all about. Quite honestly, the reality of it was very sad. We focus sometimes so much on all the first things our children do, that we forget sometimes it is the last time they will do something. Such as, the last time we will help feed them, the last time they will need our help tying their shoes, the last time they will need us to hold their hand to cross the street, the last time we will read them a book goodnight, and someday the last time they will need us to drive them somewhere. My thought of motherhood is all about letting go…..
As I begin this journey, I am trusting God to help me let go at the right time.
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14
