Every so often I have these moments where I feel like I live in two different time periods; the period of a young mother because I have a baby and the time of an older mother because I am a mother to older children. Now granted they are only teens, but compared to an almost one year old, yes, I mother older children.
I’m not sure any of this is making any sense…I know the grace it took to get here and now. I know the grace needed to continue. I am acutely aware at times that in four very short years I may not be waking my oldest from her top bunk. I am painfully aware that in four short years my baby will be 5…my that seems like a life time away.
I have these pangs of “Relish the time now because you could have never imagined your baby being 14″ and the perplexing questions of “Where will Chris and I eat dinner once all the children have moved out? Will we eat at the table where we all cram in now or will we eat at the bar?”
And then I laugh at myself because please God I have at least a good 18 years before that question will have to be answered.
Join us each week as we pause, look back on the week, and relish those moments–Moments of Grace.
