and one to grow on
when i had my children i assumed that i would see them grow up. i felt sure that i would be the most indelible mark on the people that they would become. i can not imagine the frustration of a mother who knows that this guarantee has been stolen. my greatest gift will be to see who my children become. i can not imagine what it would be like to lose that chance and know that it will be lost. i’m sure the knowing is the hardest part. that some mothers are given just enough time to know what they will miss, but not enough to solidify their gift to their kids. i think the hardest part would be breaking my word. i promised my children when they were born that i would always be there for them. who will answer their call when i am gone? lest you worry, i am not the one short on time. i weep for the mother that is. while i worry that my children will dress warmly and be kind and get good grades, she is worried that hers will remember her face. nothing fills a mother’s heart like the smile that grows across her child’s face when he sees her. how long does a child search the room for her mother’s eyes after she has passed? oh, my aching heart. that i should live never having to know the answer to that question. that i should never forget how lucky i am in that fact.
