"Oh how the years go by, Oh how the love brings tears to my eyes and all through the changes the soul never dies, we fight, we laugh, we cry, as the years go by." - Amy Grant
I am not big on "TBT" but could not help but look back on my "repurposes." Do you ever wish as a mom that we could stop time? I tell my kids over and over again that I wish we could move to Never Never land so they do not have to grow up. I know that growing up is part of life, but I am in the phase I do not want my kids to know the world. I do not want them to know sadness, I do not want them to know pain, I do not even want them to know what sex is! I guess this is all a part of being a mom. There is joy but also pain.
I know many woman who do not want to have kids because they do not want to bring them into a world full of all of these emotions. I do not have anything against these woman, I actually understand their point of view. However, when I begin to think about the hurt, disappointment, sadness, and life stories my kids are going to have, I cannot help but think about the happiness they have brought me. I would not trade it for ANYTHING. Already in the 9 years of Maddie's life and 6 years of Macaiden's life, they have taught me more than I could have dreamed. Things are easy for them to understand (right now anyways...or at least with one of my two). It is what it is. What a vision a child has...they see things we do not and yet we hide things from them that we do not want them to see.
Moms, there is so much more that I have to share. As you know, each child is different. Both of my kids are completely different, and I cannot wait to share, however in the end we all have one thing in common : time flies. I used to count the days until summer or the next holiday. My calendar no longer has a counter. I realized that I was wishing my life away...not my life, but my life with my kids who will soon no longer be in my house. The years go by.
My repurpose for the day: Cherish today.
