Oxymorons… Constant Change, Day Dreams, Chili, Climb Down, Current History, Black Light, Boneless Ribs, ok, you get the point. I am living an oxymoron, or at least I think that is what it is. I am living between 2 equal and opposite tensions…
Every experienced parent I have ever met has told me, “before you know it, your kids will be grown up”. To be honest, I want that quickly! Parenting young kids is TOUGH work. Sometimes, THEY DRIVE ME CRAZY! I want them to more quickly grow up into independent, responsible, God loving adults. Enough of this childishness.
But, I WANT THIS TRAIN TO SLOW DOWN! Braden’s first day of school tore me up. Truly, I haven’t been that burdened for my children in a long time. I honestly couldn’t see him cry. I had to leave. It was the last time we will send our children off to school for the very first time. Wow, I love my kids and would do anything to dry their tears.
Somehow I don’t think I am unique.
