It was not an easy week, neigh month. My daughter’s prom was approaching, but no date was secured (that we knew of), no dress delivered, no plans yet made.
As the deep sediments of my soul shifted and settled, I saw more clearly through the eyes of a mother. Motherhood was nothing like I had imagined.
A recent conversation with my daughter reminded me what amazing adults my kids are growing into. I can’t wait to be friends with my kids.
I desperately wanted my kids to have an easier time dealing with the world than I did. But they’ve taught me so much.
