The day has finally come, the day I have NEVER really ever thought about.
Technically last Sunday Amber should have join the youth group. But since we were on vacation I pushed it to the back of my mind. I was gearing myself up for this upcoming Sunday knowing that she would not be in my Sunday school class, that she would be with a new group of kids.
After spending a relaxing day poolside, imagine my utter and complete surprise when Amber walks into my room and announces that her friend left a voicemail asking if she was going to be at youth tonight. So I quickly checked to find out if this horror momentum occasions was really happening.
And of course I was NOT prepared. Here I was just back from the pool trying to figure out what to make for dinner and now I had less than an hour to cook dinner, make sure she was ready, and not to mention get myself ready. But what do I do…I sat down on my bed and bawled my eyes out.
I can still remember how I felt when my mom treated me like a baby (or what I thought was like a baby). I can now totally relate to what my mother was going through.
Instead of making dinner, I was mind boggled as to how is my baby going to be without me. Its too soon, I’m not ready for her to not to be with me. I was transported back to her first day of daycare, where I sat outside the building bawling out my eyes too. Except for this night I know the kids she will be with, and I am completely at peace as to where she will be, who she will be with and what she is doing.
OK so I didn’t exactly take her tonight, thankfully hubby was here to pass on that job. If not I probably would have stayed with her and embarrassed her in front of all of her friends.
So my baby is a young lady now and it looks like she will continue to grow up even if I don’t want her to.
What struggles have you had to face lately??
Wishing you many Blessings
