Tonight I was talking with one of my best friends and we were talking about how stressful it is to be a mom, a single mom to be exact. We spoke of how we would cry the tears of hurt for our daughters if we could. We talked about how we want to protect them from bullies and bad teachers and the unexpected pains of life or just having a bad day. We talked about the anxiety of not being able to protect them from all the things that we have no control of.
As adults and as parents we now understand all of the things our parents did and said to us as kids teens and young adults. It’s hard to put into words how deep the love of is as parents. We would move mountains to make them smile. We would sacrifice anything for them to live out their dreams.
Being a parent is a precious gift and it’s not one taken lightly by many of us. Our love is indescribable and can’t be measured. We thank God for trusting us with such precious gifts! We strive daily to be the best parent possible!
Take a listen to this song by Regina Bell. It is the closest I can get to describing how I feel about my children.
