On one of my entries someone asked the question, "Are you afraid for your kids to grow up?" At first it was no, of course not. Then I started thinking about that question and decided to change my mind. (That's my right, I am a woman.)


These are my reasons:


Well, I have travel down a "small" portion of the road of life. I have experienced and seen many things. There has been many rocks in the road, detours, falling trees, storms, mountains, flowers, and woods. Therefore, I am excited for my kids to grow up and I am scared for my kids to grow up.


A parent would love to protect their children from harm or unnecessary heartache by guiding them down certain roads and avoiding others. It is not to control their lives, but instead to guide them because of experience and knowledge.


Life is to learn and experience, that is one reason why we are here.


My children hope know that when they leave everyday, that they are loved.


I hope that when they are faced with a choice that they choose the decision that means most to you.


I hope that they respect others and most important respect themselves.


There is a country western group that sings a song that sums "My wish".



My wish--Rascal Flatts


I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,

And each road leads you where you want to go,

And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,

I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.

And if one door opens to another door closed,

I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,

If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

But more than anything, more than anything,


My wish, for you,

is that this life becomes all that you want it to,

Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,

You never need to carry more than you can hold,

And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,

I hope you know somebody loves you,

and wants the same things too,

Yeah, this, is my wish.


I hope you never look back,

but ya never forget,

All the ones who love you, in the place you left,

I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,

And you help somebody every chance you get,

Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,

And you always give more than you take.

But more than anything,

yeah, and more than anything,


My wish, for you,

is that this life becomes all that you want it to,

Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,

You never need to carry more than you can hold,

And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,

I hope you know somebody loves you,

and wants the same things too,

Yeah, this, is my wish.

Mom-

That was an awesome post. I love the new background. That song rings so true. Beautiful lyrics. Sometimes I wish I could put my thoughts into words the way some songwriters and novelists do. I understand your fears. My mom is so terrified for me to grow up and leave her home. I am the baby. I think you'll do the same thing with Elyssa. She's your baby and all your kids are your babies. Rightly so. Anyway, I loved this post. It touched me. Thanks!

Love Abbynormal
