I have two adult daughter whom I love very much. Both are different, yet the same. One is a professional wedding photographer and the other is working towards her Certified Medical Assistant. I am so proud of both of them and yet sad because they grew up.
Kids are suppose to grow up and have a life of their own. I remember when they were little and driving me crazy sometimes. I would hear other people say, enjoy it, because they grow up fast. So true! I look back and wonder where it all went. How did the time fly by? Life truly does go by faster as we get older.
As parents, we support, advise and correct our kids. Our hope is that they listen and make the right choices in life. We will all make mistakes, but we hope to learn from those mistakes and never do them again. We must own up to our mistakes. I hope that my daughters learn from any mistakes they make. To know that when you fall down, shake yourself off and get back up. I’ve made many mistakes as a mom. Even through my mistakes, big or little, I have learned to be a better mom through it all.
My girls have a life of their own. And even though I am happy for them, I still miss them being home. They are not to far away and I know they will come visit anytime. Yes, sometimes I am sad because they are not here, but I know in my heart they are happy and that’s what I want for them. So in the meantime my husband and I return to the dating process. Getting to know one another again, having fun and spending less money.
In those times of having kids at home, remember one thing. Spend as much time with them as you can because time does fly. One minute you see them crawling around and the next minute they are moving out. All I can say is, they grow up fast. I hope my girls know how much they mean to me.
I didn’t speak of God in my post this time, but I know He has plans for me and you. We have chapters in our life that we go through and this chapter God is bringing me and my husband to do His Work. Our work with our girls will never end, but they don’t need us as much as they used to. We all need God, and without Him there is no future.
