My kids are grown and gone. I’ve spoken of it many times here on my blog. I’ve admitted that I didn’t handle the empty nest thing very well…in fact, I’m still adjusting! Like many of you out there, life as I knew it changed the day I had my daughter. When my son came along, it was like God was shining his love down on me. I had these two beautiful, healthy children and felt incredibly blessed. I became a whole different version of myself. My children became my life’s work. In fact, they are my greatest accomplishment and will remain so until the day I die. I made this Mother’s Day printable for all of us who have devoted our lives to our children…and then let them go.
It’s a hard thing to do. I look at my kids now and am filled with pride. I was NOT the perfect mother. Does such a thing even exist? But at the end of the day, I can rest easy knowing I did the best I could. Every sacrifice, every sleepless night, every dollar spent was worth it. The times I winged it, hoping I was making the right decision, didn’t seem to hurt my children at all. I know there were mistakes…but there are no do-overs in Motherhood. Hopefully I did enough things right to make up for the things I did wrong!
