Sacred Life Sunday: Being a brave mama


my gorgeous boy left on friday evening for a school trip to germany - he'll be gone five days...
it's his first trip aboard without us, so i'm trying to be a brave mama...
i had a horrible dream on friday night and woke at 3am - one of those dreams where your worst fears play out in front of you - i was afraid to go back to sleep - so i didn't!!
i'm sure he's having an awesome time - and that's what i so want for him - but it's soooo hard to let go... it's his first day at nursery all over again...
as he grows up, it should be easier, but it isn't - the fears just get bigger in proportion...
this is the sacred life of motherhood - feeling the fear, but letting your kids experience life anyway!! now i know how my mum felt when i announced i was going to live in kenya for a year, knowing no one and no written confirmation of my teaching post... it was a great adventure for me aged 22 - it must have been the worst nightmare ever for her!!!
so i say a prayer for brave mamas everywhere and promise your kids will eventually, maybe years later, understand all you went through...

Those who are willing to be vulnerable move among mysteries.
