Mamas, Please Don't Grieve That Your Children Are Growing Up
There it was again in my Facebook feed: someone’s post of an adorable birthday girl with a sweet smile and a sprinkled cupcake, ready for the eating.
And beneath it, along with the likes and loves? A sad, crying Facebook “reaction” face.
Which breaks my heart.
I understand the sadness of what is left behind, mamas. I really do. But how much more should we celebrate the gift of a new day, new hopes, new joys with our children? My thanks to Her View From Home for letting me get this off my heart. I'd be so grateful if you'd take a few seconds to head over there and read the rest of this piece. And I've love to know where your heart is on this.
