Happy Mother’s Day to Me

May 11, 2009 at 12:16 pm (Musings...)












I love my darling children, Amanda and Brent.  As of Friday, I am an “empty-nest” mom.  I squalled through Friday and half of Saturday.  It didn’t help when, while I was buying my mom a gift of chocolate for Mother’s Day, I came across this saying. “Mothers are angels who lift us up when we forget how to fly.”  

I started to squall right in Mid’s until a clerk approached me and asked if I was okay!!

Danny O took me to lunch.  Both kids gave me sweet cards… Amanda gave me an i-Tunes gift card — which I promptly used to download a Guns and Roses song 🙂

I am learning that in parenting there are few “do-overs.”  I can choose to be filled with regret and paralyzed or I can thank God for His grace and mercy — and let God use me in this new chapter of my life.  Amanda and Brent are young adults and I must step back and let both of them move foward. 

{{Gulp!}} Okay… big step back…
