To me there is no other sweeter sound than this...to hear my child call me momma. I know my heart is filled with joy when I hear them call me...I also know that there are children who have mommas who don't feel the same way. For whatever reasons they are struggling. My heart aches when I hear them say, " I am so happy that school is here- a return to peace and quiet. " Or just last wknd. I was somewhere and I heard a grandad say, " I am so glad that school starts on Monday. My grandkids will be in school and I can return to quiet." How sad to think that the children in their lives are thought of in such a way as this. I hope these kids never hear them express their feelings about summer to them....but I just don't feel that way. I love being around them and miss even my older children who are grown. When they call or come home it still warms my heart.
Yeah it is crazy and loud and often chaotic here but the sounds of my children laughing, talking and calling my name still remind me that I am truly blessed.
