When we take on the position of “mother,” we are accepting one of the greatest challenges life can give us. We’re given nine months to hold onto this precious life growing within in us – a time for mother/child bonding which can only come from such an intimate time. We’re allowed about 18 or so years to nurture, care for, instill values, share our dreams with and give our hearts to them. When they take flight, at that particular juncture, we hope they are ready to face life with confidence and courage. Though we have watched them leave the nest our hearts and souls follow them. We have become a piece of them, which they in turn will share with someone else as time goes by.

You never stop being a mom. Though grey hair has replaced what used to be, a mom will always think of her children and their welfare. When she puts on the brakes, she will extend her arm over the passenger seat to protect you, even if you aren’t there. She will dream about forgetting to pack your school lunch and wake up in a cold sweat. The tables will turn eventually, and mom will become the child rather than the caregiver. What goes around comes around. The seeds we plant as parents, will always return a great harvest and history will repeat itself.



About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
