Dear Weary Mom,
School is upon us....and as much as that may bring cheers on some levels, it brought me walking in a circle for 5 minutes trying to figure out what would make it into the lunch boxes all the while trying to navigate making my coffee....because I slept late...again. Yes I realize that they are old enough...Senior and Sophomore year.....and can't they make their own lunches, be big kids??
Perhaps. But I also realize that next time this year, I won't have two lunches to make, won't hear my girls alarm clock going off and want to drop kick it, won't have someone saying "Mom I KNOW it's 9 pm...but can't you please get these washed..I NEED them"....yes, all too soon responsibility will be heavy on their shoulders and lifted off of mine...and I'm not quite sure just how I feel about that these days.
Change is hard, change is scary, change is something we face in so many areas of our lives. Change is all around me. So I have decided to take it one step at a time, one change, one lunch, one load of laundry, the same way I did when they were so very little. Keep going mama, we've got this and He's got us. One step at a time. Thankful.
