Fall – Five minute Friday


It’s hard work at times being a Mom.

Watching you journey in this world and trying so hard to protect you.

It was so much easier when you were little. Holding your hands and keeping you safe.

Now you are well on your way to becoming young women.

Wanting to explore further a field.

Wanting your own independence.

I have to stand back a little now.

Like a mother bird watching her chick spread his wings to fly.

I can only watch and pray over you.

I have to trust you to the one that’s loves you so much too.

Trust you to the teaching and truth your father and I gave to you.

Whatever you go though my sweet precious girls remember this.

I am always on your team.

I am always by your side.

Life will be full of twists and turns.

Heart moving movements along with heartbreaks.

Again I promise you this

If you ever fall, I will be there to help you up.


Again I’m joining in with Lisa Jo’s Five minute Friday

Sometimes I wonder if anyone sees the real me

Sometimes I wonder if I actually know the real me under the fronts I use for protection

The mom

The wife

The daughter

The friend

I wonder if anyone can see me stripped down and bare.

Would anyone like what they see?

I start the day with a smile that hides so many things, worries, fears.

Exhaustion, exhilaration

But am I really bare without the roles I play.

Or are my roles pieces of the jigsaw that is in truth who I am.
