Always a MOM


I will always be a mother of this little boy

That little boy accused his dad and I of high jacking him last Friday evening to look at cars.  We needed to buy one.  And I mean need.  And we were passing by…just a quick look we said. Car shopping is not something we ever do for kicks nor is buying a car.  These items are necessities for us.  I digress.

Time was moving on like molasses in winter waiting for the “lowest price” quote . He said,  “I’ll walk home.”

“No, you can’t do that.  It is not safe!”  “No, Mom,” with a chuckle he said, “I am going to walk home on that road so drive home that way to pick me up in case I am not home yet.”

“But it is dark and you’ll have to walk on the road.”

The salesman came back.  My dear son stayed; I think only because we were done.

Rob is 27 years old, recently resigned from the army with the rank of captain and spent 2 combat tours

and I do mean combat in Iraq.

I am still his mom.

Really, I was not over reacting. It simply just would not have been safe.

One of the best Mother’s Day cards I ever received.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you forever moms!

Blessings, Linda

PS.  Love watching the major league

About chinamom3078

I am a woman who loves Jesus who loved me first. Prone to wander and distraction is common for me as I seek to reflect Him in my daily life. I am wife, mom, and grandma who has lived on 3 continents in 26+ apartments, townhouses, military housing, suburbs and now a 200 plus year old farm house. Preparing and hosting meals for the hundreds who have passsed through our home has been a joy and blessing to our family as we listened and shared over meals, coffee, light nights and Bible studies. A rich life! I have reached the age to feel qualifies to be an ”older woman” (as in Titus) even though I feel far from old and have plenty of room to grow each and everyday. And my joy is to teach Bible studies and help train other women to lead well.
