Fierce Love and Losing Control.

I shared this in 2010, but today, as I send my five year old up the steps of that yellow school bus, to ride to her first day of kindergarten, it means more.  I'll admit, I'm a bit of a wreck.  So much, that I'll be waiting at school for that yellow school bus and will take her hand and lead her into class.  I was a wreck yesterday and last night, too, as my heart has been worrying about her growing up too fast and becoming part of 'the world'.  I feel like I'm losing some control and I'm not sure I want to hand the small amount of control I have, over to strangers.
I'm just going to press in and know that God's got her covered.  I know He does.

Sending all you parents out there warm thoughts during this back to school season!

You are such a sweet mama! You'll do great, & she will do wonderful. It is such a tender moment to see them off to school. But oh how important they feel, and grown up. Sam adores being a "kinder." And right this moment he is hurrying me along so that I can walk him to school. :)

Happy thoughts to you today!

I love that video! It's beautiful and perfect and a great reminder. I know it's scary. It kind of reminds me how much weight there is on me to be a good mom and the right kind of mom for my little kiddos. I guess we are the "right kind of moms" for our kids though because that's why God gave them to us. We just have to plug along everyday trying to be our better selves and God will make up the rest!

It is scary! You are braver than I am; I eventually settled on a Montessori school to keep Odelia out of our local public school madness.

Just keep praying those sweet kids through the school year. I hope they have a great year.

Blah I've got more than a few years before I go through this but reading your post made made me so emotional because I could just imagine the wreck I'll be in that day. To send her off into the "hands of strangers".

God is definitely with her but it's still scary!!

My thoughts are with you...

Awww poor Momma! I bet she was grand and had no idea you were a mess! XOXO

Beautiful video. It's so true; all the words are so true. Every mom knows it and says, yep, that's how it is.

All of you are so wonderful! Thanks for taking the time to write me kind words of encouragement. :) The first day went great, and I'm thankful I have you all to share these new times with. x

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
