Some of these blogs were easier when the kids were younger. Now, with the kids being a bit older, I try to be more conscious of what I write about them. I don't want to embarrass anyone.
Today something happened where one of my more independent children needed me. I've gotta tell you. I honestly didn't expect the situation. The child had been in the same situation before, so nothing was new. But I was needed to comfort my child.
My sweet kiddo who is growing up need only to ask and I was there. I don't like that my child was nervous and a little scared. I don't like that at all. But I like that I can still give comfort. I mean, hey, I'm 36 and I still call my mom when I'm upset. So it's not like I thought my giving comfort position was over by any means! Today, I just wasn't expecting it and it turned my heart to mush.
Tonight I am thankful that my kiddos know that I am always there for them! They will always know that I will always be there for them! There is no question.
