A Mother’s Heart

The heart of a mom doesn’t stop caring once her children move out of the home. In fact, at first, it aches even more as she realizes that those sweet faces who she use to see everyday will not be a part of her life in the same way ever again. For so many years, our children depended on us for everything and then gradually, day by day, and moment by moment, we see them building their own life. We experience all kinds of emotions: sadness, joy, pride, worry, and sometimes loss of identity. Our job is done, right!?

Our job as a parent is never over, it just changes. It is now time to take a more passive role. Support them in their endeavors, be a listening ear, give advise when asked and most of all, pray for them. As a parent , our tendency is to rescue our children so that they will not suffer any pain or heartache, but part of the process of building maturity is for them to learn how to emotionally and mentally deal with situations on their own. When parents rescue their children, they are robbing them of the essential confidence and character that is needed to handle future problems. So as hard as it is sometimes , we parents must also go through a learning process also. Learning to let go. Allowing our children to make mistakes. Then watching them soar. Be proud of yourself and embrace this new role.

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate motherhood, but for some people Mother’s Day can be a time of heartache. Maybe your mom or your child is not with you either through distance or through death, maybe you are estranged from your child and there is an ache for their love, or maybe you were never able to have children. If there is a void in your heart this Mother’s Day, acknowledge your feelings. Express these feelings through tears, writing in a journal, doing something in your loved one’s memory, or saying a special prayer. Think good thoughts, cherish memories, smile, and let your heart be light. Allow the peace of God to overwhelm you. My heart goes out to those whose hearts are hurting this Mother’s Day for what ever reason. Let us all remember to lift these women up through compassion and in our thoughts and prayers.

A mother’s heart loves forever and likes for always

I am 54 years-old and the mother of three grown children. In the last five years, I left a profession I was in for over 20 years, I moved to a new city, re-married, went back to school to discover a new profession, and became a grandma for the first time. I also am pursuing my passion for writing. I am writing a children's picture book and I started my first blog ever. For years I was afraid of change but I now I embrace it
