Everyday I am the Mom
Ah, children. I have four. All boys. I love them, but oh there was the season when someone would remind me to “Enjoy your kids while they’re young … they grow up so fast.” My thought was always, “Good, I can’t wait.” But NOW, I remind other moms with, “The days are long but the years are short.”
The funny thing is my dream was to be a Broadway star. I always thought I’d get married so I could have a husband to support me as I auditioned for shows, but I never really dreamed of having babies. Of course, now I have four, and I now see how God knew me better than I knew me. My adult children continue to teach me more about love, sacrifice, simplicity, battles, tears we’ve gone through and the joy of loving someone so fiercely you’d give your life for them. And now I do get to travel, perform on stage, and sharing stories and all of it was part of God’s plan for me…everyday.
