Hey y’all! I am a little emotional this morning. Nothing bad. Just feeling slightly sad because this chapter of my life – mom to a high schooler – will soon be ending. Was scrolling through my Facebook memories and came across a picture of my son and I from two years ago. Y’all, it hit me, he’s no longer that same person. He has matured so much since then. The other day I looked over at him and noticed that what was once peach fuzz on his chin can now be considered a beard. His walk is different. Even his stance is different. It seems like it was only months ago that I was like, yeah.. he’s taller than me. Now it seems as if he towers over me.
I know I say this all of the time when I write about my children, but I really do love being a mother. I’ve been asked if I’m ready to become a grandparent and the answer is “Absolutely not!” Lol. My babies have told me that they are not sure if they even want to have children and I am fine with that. I have plenty of nephews and nieces to love on and I’m pretty sure they are going to have babies. So I am good in that area. If I find myself lonely and really want to love on some little ones, I can always volunteer at a school, childcare center or after school program.
Well, I am going to end here because it is time for me to get up and get moving. I just want to say I am so grateful God allowed me the experience of motherhood. It is not something I take for granted.
