What is it about the first day of school?
Ever since Hannah stepped or maybe ran onto that big yellow school bus 12 years ago, I have anticipation and a couple tears as I watch my kids leave the house for their first day of school each year.
My kids have been leaving me for years – going to sleep-away camp, Grammy and Pappap camp, church camp, etc. I think there’s something about starting a new school year that makes me realize once again how fast time goes. As a mother of a high school senior and high school sophomore, I’m telling you something you may already know – time goes fast.
Time goes really fast!
So think upstream a bit and make sure you’re thinking of your own purpose beyond mothering. Being a mom is definitely one of the most important roles you and I will have in this life, but God has called you to do something else of significance… something that makes you feel alive.
