Wanna Bawl Your Head Off This Morning?

OK, I hadn't planned on crying like a baby this morning,

but this video really takes the cake!

I am at a point in my life when my children don't need me like they always have.

For so many years, my life has been defined as mama...

a mama active in every part of my children's lives.

But as you know....

our kids grow up,

our relationships change.

I miss our older children being little and needing me.

I miss it more than you can imagine.

Our youngest baby is in the second grade

and he still loves me.

But our relationship with our older children is not the same.

And I know this is 'normal'.

But nobody told me it would be this hard.

I came across this video this morning and it put into words so many of the feelings I have been
having but just not able to verbalize.

If you have a few minutes, its so worth your time.

You may be in the same position as I am....

You may have already been there......done that.....

or you may still have sweet little ones at home that you can still put up in your lap,

tickle and listen to their sweet laughter,

and carry them to bed at night.

If you do, savor every moment,

because in a blink,

it'll be over.

And you feel like they don't need you anymore.
