As she grows

I start out slowly, and gain knowledge as I go. 

Usually this leads to confidence as I grow. 

However, being a mother this has not been so. 

As the years speed up, I feel more and more out of control.

It's so easy when they're little, but then she grows. 

I love being a mom. However, everyday it seems that I worry more and more if I'm doing it "right." This is the most important job I will ever have, and I know I don't get a re-do. I couldn't ask for anything else in a child, and I hope pray that she will look back and say the same about me as her mommy. 

Dammit! Someone hand me a tissue.

  1. I just cleaned out Mags winter clothes she's grown out of already. It happens so fast, but we just trust and soak up every minute we can. Nice entry!

    1. Thanks Mel! It does happen so quick. As the years pass by, they speed up.

  2. I dont think the worry ever stops. What a great post!

  3. Beautiful response, Kari. This issue is a crippling one for me. Absolutely ... crippling.

    Great. Hand me a stupid tissue, Kari.

    Thanks for linking up. I'm sure you're doing an amazing. I pray that I am, too.

    1. Passing the tissue. I feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest just thinking about it.
