As I looked at him on the stage.., it was hard to believe my little man is about to graduate from 1st grade!! ~sigh~
I can remember back….
after a day back home.. I was sitting in my HOT bath one night… and I was just CRYING!! I thought… Lord, I’ve got to get it together!! I was just overcome… by the fact that he was GROWING too fast already.. EVERY minute.. EVERY day… he was getting bigger.. older…. & I wanted him to stay .. “my little infant” that I could cuddle, hold, smell that sweet smell….
I was really saddened!! (I know that sounds crazy! lol)
One day, I saw one of my co-workers from school. A dear Sweet lady.. who had 3 grown boys herself. I was sharing with her about my feelings.. & she said, oh but Keisha!! Everyday, Every year.. is a NEW adventure with your babies!! As they grow older they will do many fun and memorable things that you will come to treasure as well!! Don’t feel that way… be excited for each new passing day!!
I changed my perspective as a Mother… & I look forward to each new adventure with my little darlings!!! I’m also reminded of Dorie from the hit movie “Finding Nemo”. Nemo’s dad.. didn’t want him to do anything.. he was just scared for him… and Dorie (crazy as she was ;0) ) said.. You can’t keep anything from happening to him….. or nothing will ever happen to him!
As much as we would like to protect our kids.. our babies.. we have to let things happen… going to school, meeting friends…. making choices… We are to teach them the ways of God, that is our responsibility!
Here are a few pictures from the program.. hope you enjoy.. &
