The DAY my kids CARRIED ME!
As parents, we nurture and carry our kids through the early years of life. We do our best to lift them up when they are down, and cheer them on to be the best they can be. If they fall and bruise a knee, we are there to help them up. We carry them over the rough spots and help them through the challenges. We wonder if the day will ever come where they no longer need us to carry them. We yearn for the day to come and rescue us from our exhaustion. Then one day (too quickly) we turn around to see that they are the ones that carried us! At a recent family outing, I watched as our children picked up their dad and carried him so he could enjoy the activities too! I realized those small acts of service so many years ago had now come full circle. Yes. In many ways, they had carried us all along.
Awesome blessings, those kids of mine!
