THIRTY YEARS…~

 

 

WE ARE MID JULY ALREADY…CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??  HERE IN THE NORTHEAST, WE HAD SUCH A SOUL CRUSHING SPRING, WITH COLD, RAINY DAYS  IT FEELS LIKE IT’S SIMPLY GOING TOO FAST!

I CAN.NOT.BELIEVE WE ARE ROUNDING AUGUST….

THIS WEEK, I CELEBRATE THE THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF  ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF MY LIFE…

JULY 25, 1987, I BECAME A MOM, AND MY WHOLE WORLD CHANGED.

 

I FINALLY KNEW, FOR SURE, THE FACE OF REAL, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

IT’S BEING WILLING TO WALK IN FRONT OF A CANNON FOR YOUR CHILD..

TO DESCEND TO THE DEPTHS OF HELL AND BACK, AFRAID BUT UNDETERRED..

TO GET UP WHEN THERE IS NOTHING LEFT AND KEEP GOING,

TO BECOME AN OVERNIGHT DOCTOR, TEACHER, PSYCHIATRIST,  SCOUT MOM  AND CONFIDANT,

TO HAVE TO SAY “NO” WHEN YOU WANT TO SAY “YES”

TO BE WILLING TO LISTEN AND NOT JUDGE

TO ACCEPT UNCONDITIONALLY THE CHILD GOD DELIVERS INTO YOUR ARMS, NO MATTER WHO OR HOW THEY ARE.

TO TAKE BLAME FOR THE THINGS THAT DIDN’T WORK, BUT NONE OF THE CREDIT FOR THE AMAZING ACHIEVEMENTS, BECAUSE THOSE ARE ALL HIS…

TO WANT ONLY THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILD, EVEN IF IT’S NOT WHAT YOU IMAGINED WHEN YOU WERE DREAMING OF HIS FUTURE, AND EXISTING ON  DOVE BARS , 9 1/2 MONTHS PREGNANT..

THIS IS WHO I BECAME  ON JULY 25TH, 1987.

I LAID DOWN IN A HOSPITAL BED, A NERVOUS, BEWILDERED WOMAN OF 28 IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN, AND AROSE A MOM..STRONG AS A LIONESS, ON A MISSION FROM GOD.

THAT IS THE POWER OF MATERNAL LOVE.

IT IS PURE, AND HAS NO EQUAL.

IT COULD STOP WARS AND SOLVE POVERTY IF HARNESSED CORRECTLY.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT, AND NOTHING..NOTHING STRONGER IN THIS UNIVERSE.

ASK ANY MOM.

ASK THE MOM OF A DRUG ADDICTED CHILD WHO WON’T GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT.

ASK THE MOM OF A HANDICAPPED OR MENTALLY CHALLENGED CHILD, WHO FIGHTS THE WORLD TO ACCEPT HER SON OR DAUGHTER AS A BEAUTIFUL DIFFERENT…

ASK THE MOM OF A CHILD BULLIED…..AND PITY THE BULLY IF SHE IS NEARBY.

IT’S A GIFT LIKE NO OTHER…THE  MOST PRECIOUS YOU WILL EVER RECEIVE..

AND THEN, THE FUNNY PART….

YOU HAVE TO LET GO.

ALL THAT PASSION, ALL THAT INTENSITY, ALL THAT BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS…

WHEN YOUR CHILD BECOMES A GROWN MAN OR WOMAN, YOU HAVE TO STEP ASIDE..

AND IT’S THE HARDEST THING YOU WILL EVER DO.

BUT THAT’S THE CYCLE, AND IT MUST BE HONORED.

IT’S A SEASON, AND IT’S GONE BEFORE YOU CAN PACK AWAY THE LEGGOS AND SUPER MARIO GAMES..

BUT YOU ARE LEFT WITH THE SWEETEST OF MEMORIES.

IT’S THE BEST GIFT I EVER RECEIVED.

THANK YOU FOR CHOSING ME, KEVIN.

I PRAY OF WAS WORTHY OF THE CALLING ❤️ ~
