Happy Saturday friends💫💫💫Today the first of my 4 officially moves out to her own apartment in another city.
Our 2 boys are off on their own adventures but ultimately come back home to their beds for holidays and summer.
My youngest is in high school so she’s sticking around a bit yet.🤗
What a change 5 years can make when you have kids. 💫
When I was little My dream was always to be a mama.
Each time I brought another one home I would feel the weight of responsibility in a new way.. I had to keep these little ones alive. 😱
I listened for their cries in the night, and later their cars pulling in and footsteps up the stairs late at night. My greatest work and heart are wrapped up in these 4.
I never knew that I could love so fiercely and hurt so deeply. They have shaped me.. these 4 have.. into a different kind of mama then I started out as.
I know I’ll always be their mama but today Marks the beginning of a new season.
It’s what we raise them for and slowly slowly I have been opening my hand and releasing each one to their path that their creator has made for them.
So today I feel bittersweet, melancholy and a little reflective.
But mostly I am grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to be their mama.
Fly my bird. You were made for such a time as this.💫
