Being a Mom

Friday, July 12, 2013

Being a mom is counting down the days until the girls get here. It's going crazy getting the house clean and the errands done so you won't have to do any of that while they are here. It's running around like crazy while they are here. It's shopping and visiting and dropping them off to visit with their friends. It's trying to remember everything you wanted to talk about and do with them. It's making sure they are okay, have everything they need and that they're having a good time. It's not wanting them to ever leave me again. It's getting depressed when they go. It's a too quiet house and a migraine headache when they're gone. It's trying to stay busy so you don't think too much about the ache you feel when they are gone. It's counting down the days until you see them again. If you have your children around you right now, give them a hug for me, tell them how much you love them, tell them how much they mean to you. My daughters are the very best thing that ever happened to me.

    emoticon emoticon I don't get to see my kids much and then for just very short periods of time. I hope the ache eases up soon.

    Thanks for your thoughts. I am in the middle of child-raising at this point in my life and yet when I catch myself thinking "I wish they were outta here!" the next thing I ask myself is "And THEN what are you gonna do?" I'm actually very fearful for that time when they are gone. Thanks for the reminder to love on them NOW.

    I know how you feel. When my boys aren't home, my house seems so empty. My husband thinks I'm weird because I'll say something like I miss having sports on t.v. because at least when sports are on, I know my boys are home. I miss hearing my son Justin go up and down the steps. I miss Stephen singing to himself or hearing him talk on the phone. I share your sentiment. My most peaceful, blessed time is usually during the holidays when all the boys are home and I'm laying in bed with my husband in the dark with a such a sense of peace knowing they're all home safe and sound. The time goes by too fast. emoticon
