There are some days I wake up and ask myself, what is important to me today? Of course my family are the first to come to mind. They are my heart. I sit up in bed and stare at a picture of them, then ask myself, “ where would I be without them?”
Well I know I would not be in any better place than I am now. I would be alone and never know what its like to hear a child laugh, or cry, and know its my place to help them through life.
Wow! What a big responsibility! To help the children through life! Have I taken this task too lightly? Have I failed them somehow? Am I the mother I am supposed to be? No I am not what they need, for I have flaws. I fail so often!
I look at the children as they talk and interact with others and I know they are good children! They have been so good all these years; A stable constant in my world of forever changing. They love me when life is good, and when its not so Good.
Little arms reaching to hold me when I’m the one who should be holding them. Children are so kind, and such a blessing.
My little heroes, forgive me for not being a better mother, person, friend, or teacher to you! Lord help me to be more than a mother, but to be a Mom, who never forgets her place, or stops holding her arms out to the dear children who need so much more than I have given.
